*****GK: There is nothing Celtic about the Tauri of
the Crimea. The Taurisci enter history as a Celtic
tribal unit of the La Tene culture. Vague sound
similarities (Tauri/ Taurisci;
Cymru/Cimbri/Cimmerians; Getae/Goths; Scythians/Scots;
Romans/Roma etc. etc.) are not a hopeful method for
the reconstruction of historical events in the absence
of additional textual , archaeological, ethnographic,
linguistic etc. corroborations.*******
