  1. The term didn't mean what it means today though....

    The term didn't mean what it means today though. For Strabo the term Germani meant in essence something like 'Genuine Galatae' and he thought it was an exonym the Romans first used.
    It seems...
  2. Nice. But "Polish-like" is not necessarily...

    Nice. But "Polish-like" is not necessarily 'Slavic' exactly.
  3. Avestan and Old Persian themselves were certainly...

    Avestan and Old Persian themselves were certainly not mutually intelligible but we see many similar words, for example personal pronouns in Avestan/Old Persian are: min "I, me" (Greek egw), tu"thou"...
  4. The most logical alternative to the mainstream is...

    The most logical alternative to the mainstream is that the so called 'voiced stops' were simple stops, slightly longer (p:, t:, k:) or 'aspirated' and the so called 'voiced aspirated' stops were...

    There in no lie in his Histories, that is no stories made up by him. Of course there are scholars who have supported that but that doesn't mean it is correct.

    There may be many false stories that...

    Well, at least if I ever have children I can tell them not to expect any gifts from an obese old man dressed in red.

    -Do not take gifts from strangers!

    I will tell them that some of our pagan...

  8. I don't think he says what you write exactly. ...

    I don't think he says what you write exactly.

    Basically in his text there is something that could explain low Punic admixture, the fact Carthaginians used 'Iberian' and 'Libyan' mercenaries,...
  9. Can you post the source for that claim?

    Can you post the source for that claim?
  10. I don't understand your thought process. What...

    I don't understand your thought process. What proves that CHG derives from Iran_N? Both partly descend from Dzudzuana like populations (Villabruna+'Basal') with extra 'Deep' ancestry and 'Siberian HG...
  11. The evidence are the modern affinities?

    The evidence are the modern affinities?
  12. Do you want to explain what do you mean exactly?...

    Do you want to explain what do you mean exactly? Do you agree with how Angela interpreted your post?

    Personally, I am considering the possibility that distinct ANE-rich (what they label 'Siberian...
  13. I don't know who downvoted me but they are wrong....

    I don't know who downvoted me but they are wrong.

    By the way, the Dzudzuana paper showed that ANE-like ('Siberian HG and Eastern non-African') populations had affected Caucasus and Iran more than...
  14. I want to say something about Greek, not...

    I want to say something about Greek, not necessarily important for what you are trying to say. The sounds ph, th, kh do not survive in any modern Greek dialect. If they were supposedly 'murmured...
  15. What they call 'Iran-related' is probably CHG and...

    What they call 'Iran-related' is probably CHG and they are talking about predominately EEF groups with CHG admixture similar to the 'Minoans'
    and what they call 'Steppe-related' is just...
  16. I have placed the possible place of origin of...

    I have placed the possible place of origin of Avars near Ufa and I had considered them to have been possibly Ugric, because Theophylact says they were from the river Til 'whom the Turks call Black'....
  17. The use of the label 'Cimmerians' is very...

    The use of the label 'Cimmerians' is very problematic because in ancient sources it seems like a term used for some pre-Scythian inhabitants of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, some of whom migrated to...

    I don't know where these Greek live. Do you know?

    You didn't understand or don't want to admit that what you implied is offensive and inaccurate.

    (All Greek groups have some 'non-Greek'...

    Well, usually those who write about it aren't very specific about the exact sound they are talking about.

    Maybe it was a labiodental approximant, like Swiss German 'w'. (?)

    Pausanias uses that term for a population distinct than those he calls Iberians, those he calls Hellenes, those he calls Carthaginians and those he calls Trojans etc. (he says though that...

    I don't understand your post. What do you know about the Y-DNA of ancient Libyans or Ligurians?

    Concerning Corsica, the thing that I find interesting in ancient sources is that Pausanias calls Corsicans 'Libyans'.

    I have thought the possibility of a copying mistake. If, for example, where we...
