Yes you do know, you just told me now! You said it was the name of a
Cimmerian leader, that's all I wanted to know. But, where is this
Cimmerian leader Marcomir's name attested and in what sources? I thought
only Iranian names were attested among the Cimmerians, the few that are.
What other Cimmerian personal names are attested, and who recorded them?
Assyrians? Please explain because I've never heard of this Marcomir, the
name doesn't seem Iranian.
