Thanos,

Apologies for the belated response, had to spend some time pouring back over your prolific postings.
You are correct, a statement of apparent fact was actually dribbling hypotheses. A newbie error never to be repeated, and any future posts should be assumed to be prefaced with a big fat IMHO,. Thank you for the considerate correction.
You have posted an admirable body research, depiction and theory; imho.

Both routes that you have suggested pretty much concur with my own feeble attempts at ancient migrations reconstruction. Love that you have included that map in your post. The approximate borders now shared between Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Iran provide a possible locus-of-origin for dispersions of 'modern' migrations, imo.

the''Crossroads' of Eurasia.

thank you for your protean prior work on this forum
