Ancient tribes


ASSYRIA (Ancient country) PERSIAN GULF
A people of ancient Assyria, described by Pliny as being to the east of Gaugamela (vi. 26. s. 30). There can be no doubt that these are the present Rowandi, a tribe living, as in ancient times, about the great mountain Rowandiz, in Kurdistan, and doubtless connected with the Orontes of Ptolemy (vi. 2. § 4). They derive, their name from Erwend, a pure old Persian root, which was usually Hellenized into Orodes or Orontes. (Rawlinson, Journ. of Geog. Soc. x. p. 73.)
