The genetic origin of Daunians

Dienekes claimed that E-V13 in Mediterranean is essentially of Greek origin. And that E-V13 and J2 (not just J2a) in Albanians are also of Ancient Greek origin. That Turks are to a large part Ancient Greeks. That is very ironic coming from a Pontic Greek who barely has Ancient Greek ancestry himself. He should know better as a Pontic Greek. This for starters completely knocks him out for me. It's done for me.


Sorry to interrupt your discussion, I will write this and go.

1) Dienekes is Lazaridis.

2) Pontic Greeks can be modelled as having quantifiable Mycenean ancestry as you can see in the following qpAdm run, probably not as much as Peloponnesian Greeks or others, but still significantly present:

Sorry to interrupt your discussion, I will write this and go.

42.3% Mycenean (+- 7.4%) and 57.7% Maikop_Novosvobodnaya (+- 7.4%).

Dienekes is not Lazaridis. And you are using a 3000 BC old sample from Russia to model the native ancestry of Pontic Greeks.
You can model Modern Lazes and Armenians as 35% Greek with that.
Pontic Greeks can be modelled as 85% modern Laz and 15% Ionic-like.
 
Since Pax Augusta mentioned it is true that David only uses academic samples.

No, sorry, you can see Armenians fail the exact same run (see prob. tail), as qpAdm is very sensitive and is not like your blogger smartPCA "eurogenes calculator" where you mish-mash whatever you want and you get a little bit of everything as a result.

Laz speakers also have ancestry from Maikop, and have mixed with Greeks, as it can be seen with loans from the Greek language in their own language's grammatical structure, but your numbers have no basis on anything, you just pull them out from thin air.

No, sorry, you can see Armenians fail the exact same run (see prob. tail), as qpAdm is very sensitive and is not like your blogger smartPCA "eurogenes calculator" where you mish-mash whatever you want and you get a little bit of everything as a result.

Laz speakers also have ancestry from Maikop, and have mixed with Greeks, as it can be seen with loans from the Greek language in their own language's grammatical structure, but your numbers have no basis on anything, you just pull them out from thin air.

You are using a sample that pre-dates the Pyramid of Giza by 500 to 700 yeas and it's even from a different location. The Mycenaean genetic profile did not even exist in 3000BC. Pontic Greeks are very close to Laz with a Western pull.

Pontic Greeks can be modeled as 85% Modern Laz and 15% Ancient Greek.
Wait until we find out how natives of Pontus were like in the Iron Age.

I post qpAdm pass run, you post your ringleader's "coordinates" and closed project "calculator" results. IDC if you believe me or not, not my problem.

Maikop is perfectly fine to model native, non Steppe, Caucasus ancestry for that period and within range for Minoan and Mycenean sample age, same for Kura-Araxes that show similar ranges but I don't post this because you will pull some excuse for that sampling also. The bottom line is Pontic Greeks pass qpAdm runs with Mycenean reference samples, they also speak a very archaic version of Ionic Greek, and that seems to annoy Albanians and other Balkan people for some reason, but, like I said, not my problem.

You posted un-based claims, I corrected it for the other people to see.

Can you give a good reason on why one should compare Pontic Greeks with Laz?like from a linguistic or historical point of view?other than just repeating sikeliot or turkish anthroboarder type stuff? (I understood btw that we two had a discussion over the same subject them in another forum ) ,can you give an era by era synopsis of how these populations were created ..for sure?

Also how about suggesting the Bekas guy some better models for him to try If his doesn't cut it?

You've said in our previous discussion that you have no agenda but something seems to bother you about certain anthrofora Jewish members(as I remembered from the discussion in the other forum) Dienekes and their theories..

The point is that the source that you are using is highly unlikely to be fully representative of natives in Pontus because of the date 3000BC-3200BC and the location. The inhabitants of Serbia were French-like during those times if I remember well.

I think you are tricking yourself. The sample you used is not 100% impossible to be exactly the same as the natives of Pontus but it's highly unlikely.
Wait until something by 800BC is released to see how they plot.

Also Romans settled colonists in Pontus too and Central Anatolians were more Western Shifted, Cypriot-like. Not the entire Western shift was caused by Ionians, but most of it yes.

I have tested G25 calculator with several different academic paper, including the Imperial Rome 2019 study. The percentages were the same with the studies, so I am satisfied with it.

I only mentioned Dienekes because of comparison with Davidski I have only searched "Albanians" once in his blog and found out about this. He is inactive I could care less about him. He gets tolerated for his biases but Davidski gets not. I have no problems with Jewish people.

I am sure most of what I have said will be proven. Wanna bet on that?

If your bet is that Pontic Greeks are a straight 85% post-Roman(?) era "Lazes" + 15% Mycenaean-like Pontic Ionian "survivors" ,I'm in for a bet since I believe the picture must be more complicated.

I have no opinion on the haplogroups origins ,I just mentioned Dienekes just to show that you have your own biases.. I wouldn't be surprised if he is right to some unknown extent though since there are gaps about Albanian ethnogenesis.
 
Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying, eurogenes says Pontics are Laz and Armenians, so it must be true,

you should inform the Cambridge seat of Linguistics, also, so they don't waste their time using the Pontic dialects spoken today in Greece and Turkey to reconstruct Homeric Greek and their Hellenistic Alexandrian evolutions. Just tell them eurogenes told you Pontics are hodge-podge of Lazic tribesmen, G25 is definitely the proof.



Also, here's a qpAdm pass run that uses modern Georgian for a proxy of the native Caucasus reference. You can see the spread is similar (36.4% Mycenean and the rest Georgian) with a slightly higher standard error (+-1% to the Maikop run).

So, I am sorry it hurts your feelings but Pontic Greeks have quantifiable ancestry related to the Mycenean samples.
 
If your bet is that Pontic Greeks are a straight 85% post-Roman(?) era "Lazes" + 15% Mycenaean-like Pontic Ionian "survivors" ,I'm in for a bet since I believe the picture must be more complicated.

I have no opinion on the haplogroups origins ,I just mentioned Dienekes just to show that you have your own biases.. I wouldn't be surprised if he is right to some unknown extent though since there are gaps about Albanian ethnogenesis.

No where did I mention that Pontic Greeks are straight up 15% Ionian and 85% Laz. But do I think it is closer to 15% than to 43%? Yes.
I was simply correcting the method that your buddy used. I have never seen anyone here or on Anthrogenica use qpAdm.
He must've tried several methods and picked which ever he liked best.
 
Is there going to be a comprehensive study on Sicily/Calabria any time soon? Not sure how anyone can draw conclusions on Southern Italian genetics without these two regions.

At least 3-4 studies on ancient samples from Italy are about to be published. At least two include ancient samples from southern Italy, and one definitely includes samples from Sicily. Instead, unfortunately, to my knowledge there are no rumors yet about studies with ancient samples from Calabria.


Unraveling the genetic history of Italians: a genome-wide study of Iron Age Italic populations

The high genetic variability of present-day Italians reflects a complex scenario of past population dynamics dating back not only to Late Paleolithic and Neolithic but also Metal Ages. Although many archaeogenetic studies have been recently carried out to investigate the peopling of Europe, only few genomic data have been reported from Italic populations so far, especially the ones belonging to the last phase of Metal Ages: the Iron Age. To outline a picture of Iron Age genetic variability within the Italian context and infer potential gene flow patterns, we collected 78 human remains from 8 Iron Age necropolises covering 5 different regions of Italy (Emilia-Romagna, Umbria, Marche, Latium and Sicily). Double stranded half-UDG libraries were produced and then shotgun sequenced on an Illumina NovaSeq6000 platform to allow for an initial screening of the samples. Raw reads were processed using the EAGER pipeline and then assessment of DNA authenticity and sex determination were performed. Preliminary population genetics tests were run on genotyped data by building a west Eurasian PCA including all the samples with at least 10.000 SNPs covered on the Affymetrix Human Origins panel. The first results highlight an affinity of the majority of the samples with previously reported Iron Age individuals from Italy, while all samples from Sicily overlap with the genetic variability observed in this area during the Bronze Age. Our aim is to deeper investigate these samples which can significantly contribute to better understand past peopling dynamics of the Italian peninsula and reconstruct modern Italians' genetic history.

You said "Pontic Greeks can be modeled as 85% Modern Laz and 15% Ancient Greek." If that's not what you say ,I don't get why Laz should be used as a proxy? I believe even Georgian pops might not be good proxy because of possible more eastern admixture ,be it through the Greek Caucasus colonies or Roman ones ,hence the need for ancient models for Pontians.

Can you provide a good reason why the less Greek the model is the more realistic it must be?If not ,I take it as you following the herd. I'm willing to bet that not only the Ionic part is close to half but the continuity of Trapezudians with their Sinopian ancestors (the colonizers of Trapezuda) ,and Milesians(colonizers of Sinope) is even greater due to gradual accumulation of local admixtures and that the similarity with Laz is coincidental due to the latter having Greek or Roman admixture and due to them starting as Colchians who assimilated more westward black sea tribes that the Greek population also could have assimilated (see Sanni)..but that's just me ,remains to be seen (If it ever does and we're not wasting our times).

Treizbond was a Laz kingdom. The natives were Laz.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_of_Trebizond

Keep in mind that in general Anatolia has become more Eastern shifted not just because of Turkic impact that is including Christians. So maybe the natives of Pontus could've been more western shifted than modern Pontic Greeks that is not to say that modern Pontians have absolutely no Ancient Greek ancestry (I am sure they do). But PCA can get interpreted in many different ways, what pulls them west and what pulls them east.

Southern Italians are closer to Ancient Greeks than Cretans but that does not mean they have more Ancient Greek ancestry than Cretans.
 
Thanks for the info Pax. Surprised Calabria is overlooked, I feel the Oenotrians and/or the populous Greek colonies would solve the puzzle

The geographical boundaries of Lazika, according to historians, are the river Fassis to the northeast, but there is disagreement about its western boundaries, since Xenophon extends them to Trabzon and Arrianos to Ofi.
The racial difference is a given, since the Pontians are settlers from Ionia and in fact come from Miletus which, according to the testimonies of Herodotus, Xenophon and Strabo, colonized the shores of the Black Sea, while the Laz, according to one version, attract their origin from Asia and coming from there settled in Lazika. Xenophon also refers to the Laz, emphasizing that during the descent of his myriads he was unprovokedly attacked by them, while the Greeks of Trebizond "of this most Greek city" warmly welcomed him. Throughout their history, the Laz have been distinguished for their predatory character.
The confusion between the Greeks of the historical Pontus and the Lazes can be determined chronologically starting from the Byzantine years. Specifically, we have a reference to the name Laziki in 380 AD when Theodosius the Great awarded for the first time the title of "Lord of Colchis and Lazika", while Procopius writes that in the years of Justinian "Lazes at first inhabited Colchis". It is obvious that at that time the Lazes lived east of today's Lazika, and only during the Ottoman period did they enter Rizounta, bled and de-Hellenized the 105 villages of the Greek region and spread eastwards of Ofes.
The Laz converted to Christianity in the 6th century, during the reign of Emperor Justinian, when their king Tzathios went to Constantinople. From that moment on, their conscious or unconscious identification with the Pontians began, after special importance was attached at the ecclesiastical level to their religious identification with the Greeks and at the level of defense in their ability to be a barrier to the Persian expansionist tendencies towards Trebizond. The result of this confusion is the reference of the Byzantine chroniclers, after giving in 1204 the nickname "lords of the Lazes" to the Komnenians of Trabzon with , a fact that certifies their ignorance.


The first bishops of Lazika are mentioned from 680 AD and participated in the Sixth Ecumenical Council. Until the 13th century Lazika was a separate Diocese, but after the founding of the empire of Trebizond it passed to the Archbishop of Trebizond who retains the title of "Priced and Exarchist of all Lazika". In recent years the name of the Laz includes the tribes that live west of Colchis in the river Ofi, with the result that the Ottoman Empire identifies the administration of Riza as the Administration of Laz.


With the overthrow of the Greek Empire and the rule of the Ottomans, Sultan Mehmet IV imposed violent Islamization during the period when Mehmet and Ahmet Kioproulou were the Grand Viziers, with most of the Laz converting to Islam hence now they are being differentiated by religion also.
Until the Russo-Ottoman War of 1878, Lazistan was an autonomous administration based in Batumi. In 1878, after the occupation of Batumi by the Russians, the capital of Lazistan was moved to Rizuda.


After the Kemalist coup, Lazistan became a prefecture and the use of its name was banned by the Turkish authorities, because it was considered that this gave rise to the recognition of ethnic groups such as the Laz outside the borders of Turkish territory.


The younger researchers, namely D. I Economides, in his book The Pontus and the Laws of Hellenism in It, compare the language of the Laz with that of the Georgians and discover related elements by including it in the Iberian language family.


However, the research shows in an absolute way that there is no relationship between the Laz and the Pontians, since they have their own language, their own customs and traditions. Moreover, throughout their historical course, they defended their ethno-local identity, persecuting Hellenism in the logic of multifaceted competition. In fact, at the end of the 20th century, they were the most terrible pirates of the eastern part of the Black Sea.


It is therefore necessary today to stop the identification of the Pontians with the Laz. In fact, the reasons for the often repeated use of the homogenization of the two diametrically opposed ethnicities are sought by Pontian scholars with insidious actions. According to the assessments of some representatives of refugee associations, which, as far as I know, have not been scientifically researched, the identification was invented by Bulgarian historians in order to devalue the settlement of the Pontians in Macedonia. According to a second version, the identification aims at the discrediting of the Pontians themselves, since it is perpetuated by non-historians, who give the Pontian tribe the resin of the uncivilized.

Pax Augusta: Fascinating study by Valentina et al from the University of Florence. While all of the studies findings are of interest to me, the one I find most interesting are the ones that indicate Iron Age Sicilian samples (800BC to 400BC) overlap the genetic variability found during Bronze Age Sicily. I assume they are referring to the Bronze Age samples from Sicily in Fernandes et al 2020 and also the Sicilian Bell Beaker from Olade et al 2018 (I4930), although I guess one could be dogmatic and say the Sicilian Bell Beaker culture was more Copper age.

Some members seem to be stuck on the pre 2010 stereotype of proto-/Albanians as irrelevant bystanders in the genetics of the region.

I have no idea if Dienekes is Lazaridis, since from the research I did there is circumstantial evidence. But if he is, Lazaridis seems very impartial once confronted by evidence. His Minoan and Mycenean study is living proof. As for Dienekes I was trying to figure out what he claimed about Albanians since you guys mentioned it 3-4 times, as if he dissed or something, but I saw nothing of the kind on his blog.

Davidski might be stubborn, but at least you know once he deletes one of the blogs, he accepted the fact that his hypothesis got rejected. As was the case with L283 coming via sea route from the Caucasus. On the other hand I have no idea why you guys hate him so much? Is this some long feud you have been having or what? If anything I find it amusing how he challenges the crown jewels of genetics. Certainly not advisable I would say. But amusing nonetheless.

But yeah someone with info, Angela? Bekas? What did Dienekes say that would make Albanians not like him?
Since you are solely arguing with ihype2, try not to project all Albanians into the positions he is holding.
