Cappadocian – Persian word for the former kindom of Hatti

Sagartians - There are no people called Sagartians in Darius's list. Herodotus is not much help, he says - The Sagartians, Sarangians, Thamanaeans, Utians, and Mycians, together with the inhabitants of the islands in the Erythraean sea (the Red Sea), where the king sends those whom he banishes, furnished altogether a tribute of six hundred talents. This was the fourteenth satrapy. Herodotus goes on to say - the wandering tribe known by the name of Sagartians - a people Persian in language, and in dress half Persian, half Pactyan, who furnished to the army as many as eight thousand horse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Egypt – Those who are beside the Sea (normally titled Ethiopians). It is commonly assumed that this is the depiction of those people - perhaps correctly. Since no Sea is specified, it could be North Africa (the Mediterranean Sea), Eastern Africa (the Red Sea), Canaan (the eastern end of the Mediterranean), or even the Colchis who inhabited the eastern end of the (Black Sea), south of the Caucasus Mountains. Of course this all assumes that the translation is correct, and that the word "Egypt" is part of the “Those who are beside the Sea” sentence.

SKudrians - There are no people called SKudrians in Darius's list. however there are Chorasmians – An area in modern Uzbekistan. The headgear suggests it might be a match.

There are no people called Libyans in Darius's list and this man does not look like a Berber. However Sattagydia (north-west Pakistan, the eastern side of Arachosia), is listed. By appearance this man matches the Arabs and the ancients of Pakistan and India. This is what Herodotus has to say about them..

The Eastern Ethiopians (Dravidians) - for two nations of this name served in the army - were marshaled with the Indians. They differed in nothing from the other Ethiopians, save in their language, and the character of their hair. For the Eastern Ethiopians have straight hair, while they of Libya are more woolly-haired than any other people in the world.

Ethiopians – Greek word meaning: “burnt face” their term for all Blacks, usually denoting blacks not of Egypt. The Greeks were too awed by Egyptians to use that term for them.

That is actually a lie created by Albinos for some racist, simple-minded reason that normal minds cannot comprehend. Unfortunately - to the Albino trying to hide his true nature and true past, a lot of stupid, cruel, and murderous, things make sense. This particular lie is deconstructed here: Click here: >>>

Libyans – Greek term usually denoting all of Africa except Egypt.

The name India, is derived from the word "Indra" the Arian god of thunder. Hence one would think the man called Indian is an Arian, except that he is shirtless. Bare White skin in strong sunlight would not have been though wise.
