******GK: One thing perhaps worth remembering. The
Crimean mountains (and to some extent southern
seashore), over the millenia, became refuges for a
variety of ethna ( a kind of mini-Caucasus though not
as stabilized). No one has yet been able to decisively
identify the ethnic and linguistic appurtenance of the
"Tauri" (no relation to the Taurisci), though
Trubachov has recently surmised, on the basis of his
toponymical investigations, that they might possibly
have been related to the Sinds and Maeotians, and thus
have been a remnant of the Indo-Aryans here. But not
all agree with him on this. *****
