Who are the descendants of the ancient Bactrians then, my friend?
Specifically, please specify what is the "Bactian genetic marker" and where are blond, fair "modern Bactrians" are hiding?
I think the color survived on some images, I'll check that information though. And how does the fact that Babylonian artists did it changes anything? Aren't they were supposed to depict what they saw, or in you understanding, they were supposed to depict anyone only as a "Babylonian like" ?
Doesn't the fact that Roxanne is a Persian name used now by Persians suggests something in that regard in terms of Bactrian-Persian cultural relations? And, again, "high probable" or "could also have been" is not "was." All of those are just theories and I don't agree with these theories. That's it.
Well. You still failed to give me any example of how exactly Bactrians were naming their children, while I gave a documented example how other Bactrian "compatriots" named their children. Anybody can make their own conclusions based on what both of us provided...
Name "Aryan" comes from Iranian and Indian sources only. And to say that it's a "generic name used by all Eastern Indo-Europeans by themselves" is simply not true. Cause we don't know exactly how they called themselves...
There are many similarities between Sarmatian and Turkic and Hunnish arecheology. But it's not the topic of our discussion anyway. Moreover, we are discussing here not the IE people but Bactrians, who even according to your own theories could have been mixed with other more southern tribes and lost their alleged "Aryan" "fair" features.
I don't believe that my visit to Afghanistan would change much at all. All that I would see is just the abudance of the people with dark features and very minimal persentage of "fair" guys. And I don't understand how that helps your cause...
