The name of the continent Eu-oropa (ευ-οροπα) means nice plateau in Greek. The old Persian name for Europe is Afrang (Farang) meaning “the fair country” These names coincide with the name for Poland (= Lendia) which means plain land and Venetia (Venedia) meaning the fair ground. The names of Europa in the form Hao – ropa (Hao rupa) has had the meaning “her with a fair face”, in Schythian well adapted to the goddess Europa´s name. The Schythian goddess of beauty is named by Herodotos as Argimpasa (she who is very ornamented).
In the Greek myth about the goddess and Europe there are four remarkable names:
Fenicia (purple), Zeus (the brilliant), Europa (Eu-ropa) and the white bull. These names don’t connect to each other in Phoenicia (believed to be Lebanon by the Greeks in Herodotos’s time), but to the country of the Venedans (Fin-ic-ia) in Poland and the Baltic states, since these four names correspond to Venedia (the good country) manifested in the Latin name Fin-ic-ia (the land of the good people). It appears that this Latin name of the Venedans lastly moved to Finland through Estonia (the land of the fire god) though the meaning swamp of Finland seems more logical. Here Zeus and the goddess Europa have replaced the great god of the Balts, Sventevit (the holy lord) and his wife Siva (light or white) named in Nordic myths as Sif the fire god Ull’s mother) that tell of her as “the fairest among women”).
A parallel explanation: the country of the goddess Europa is the name of the land of the Venedans (the fine land or the land of the fine people) since the Scythian name “Hao-ropa” actually means ” she who has a fine view”. The Greeks have only replaced their eu.(good, fine) instead of the Scythian hao (good, fine) in the name of the goddess Europa.
At last the white bull (Celtic andero) is connected to the people androfag (the fine people) which is Herodotos’s name of the Venedans, though Herodotos interprets this half Greek, half German name wrongly as human eating people, in the Greek language.
It appears that these names Europa, Venedia and Androfagia have their origin in the neighbouring countries and have spread to the whole continent thnks to the appropriate meaning: The name of the Venedans (the fine slaves) has appeared as antaer (the fine people, angels). The names of these large groups i.e. Slovene and Slovac both have the same meaning, “the good and honoured” (slav) and “bowl people or wild goat people”. All these meanings of the Venedians we find in the Scythian Tagitas’s sons myth as told by Herodotos. He mentiones the Venedans (androtagians)as aukatians (inhabitants of the plains). In connection to this he also mentiones their mythical king Lipo-xais (the good country or the fine people’s king).
This Scythian myth contains valuable information about the big tribes in ancient Eastern Europe, yet not discovered. This is why I tell you about this valuable text from the father of the scriptures, Herodotos. I have found the meaning of the Schythian names in Iranian, Sanscrit and Slavic which I present to you in brackets in front of each name.In the scripture of Turfan is found a royal Scythian language mixed with Sanscrit and Iranian. According to the Scythians themselves they are the youngest on earth. Their origin is supposed to be as followed. The first man born in this country, while it was still barren, wasTargitaos (father of people). The parents of this Targitaos, according to their telling, should have been Zeus and a daughter to the river Borystenes (Dnepr), a story which to me seems highly unlikely. But according to this story Targitaos’s heredetory is in fact this. He is supposedly to have had three sons: Lipoxais (the king of the fine people). Arpoxais (king of the wagon land) and the youngest Kolaxais (king of many tribes). During their rule in Scythia golden tool fell from the sky: a plough (symbol of yuechies), a yoke (symbol of heptalians) a battle-ax (symbol of the taurians) and a bowl (symbol of the Scythians). The oldest of them, which saw them, went forward and wanted to touch them, but then the gold went on fire. After that he left. Then the second brother appeared but also this time the gold went on fire. Both of them were firghtened by this. When the third brother, the youngest, appeared the fire was put our and he carried the gold to his home. The older brothers pondered over this event and then left the power of the kingdom to their youngest brother.
Those Scythians that are called the tribe of the aukatians (inhabitants of the plains) are to be descendants of Lipoxais, from the middle brother Arpoxais, those wich are called katiars (fortune teller, magician) and traspians (those which use three horses for each of their wagons). From the youngest brother the kings are descendants and called paralates (the top ruler). All together the carry the name Scolots (schlavians, the bowl people) after the king’s name. The Hellenes call them Scythians (holy bowl possesion). This is what the Schythians tell about their origin.
As we have established the name Lipoxais means the king of the fine people and his people aukatians (inhabitants of the plains) and this coinsides with the Venedians – Poles. The second part of the name of the lech can be derived from German lega (lying plain) (= Poland, Lendia).
Arpoxais means the king of the wagon land and his two peoples, i.e. traspians (those wo use three horses for their wagons and katiars (fortune tellers, magicians) are in order Russians (the people of the groves) and Hungarians (fortune tellers, magicians = magyar) Herodotos mentiones them as wolf hauling neurons (magicians, fortune tellers). A Hungarian in the time of St. Cyrillius has mentioned the neuron tradition of hauling as wolfs. A famous Russian myth tells about the old Scythian name of the Russians, i.e. trapians (those who use three horses for their wagons = Arpo). The youngest and third son of the tsar was able to tame three seahorses; they had a sun, moon and a star in their respective forhead. He was also supposed to have tamed the whole flock of seahorses, something none of his older brothers had managed.
Arpoxaisland could be the wintercold home of origin of the Indo-iranian aryans mentioned in Rigveda and Avesta as Aryavarta and Aryavijia, both meaning “the land of the fine wagons”.
The third of Targitaos’s som was Kolaxais (the king of many tribes). His other name is Skolo (sclave/slav, schyth = bowl) [or together with him]. He has been the royal Schyths king and ancestor. In Avesta his name is Yamakhshaeta (the king of the shining bowl). From Schythic and Saramatic tribes who were the ancient rulers in Eastern Europe and Central Asia we can derive ossetians in the Caucasus. Croats (those who have been covered in ring mail) and Serbs (archers). In ancient times they were called alonians (the hird people= masoget) roxolanians (brilliant alans, amazons = the fully armed) and sarmathians (archers = lazygians, issedonians).
From Aellius Rasparaganus, the ruler of Roxlans and iazygians in the beginning of the third century A. D. there are two rune inscriptions left in Croatia. According to Herodotos the sarmatians (sauromatians) were bilingual and spoke west Schythian (slavic) and east Schythin (amazon, iranian).
Arpoxais and Kolaksais appear in the Bible and the Koran as Arpaksad and Shoeib (the leader of the tribes) as a prophet in the land of Yke (the land of groves = rushia, Russia). A variety of these names of the sons of Targitaos and their paralatians (the top rulers) are mentioned in Avesta (the book of Zarathostra) as parazathians (the top rulers). The myths in Avesta mention Lipoxais (king of the fine people and Apoxais (king of the wagon land) as “Takhmo – au – ropa” (hero king of the wagon land). The Avestian “u-ropa” (Hao-ropa, possessor of good shape) in the name of Takhmo – u – rupa contains the schythian form of the goddess Europa and Lipoxais’s name. According to these names Takhmo – u – rupa (heroic king of the wagon land) it is remarkable that the old names making up Ukrainians i.e. taur and ruten, meaning wheel and round tour in Latin.
Herodotos mentiones only two Germanic tribes with Scythian and Greek name: arimaspians (those who have calm horses), who worshipped the one-eyed god Oden and hyperboréeans (the upper Nordic people). In this order they are gepidic goths (goths with sluggish horses) [wagon horses] and Norwegians (the outer nordic people).
