Scythia is today's Crimea.
Their language was Scythian.
When did the Scythians settled in
In the 8th and 7th centuries BC.
The Scythians were as rich as all get
out, knew how to ride a horse, and they certainly knew how to fight.
Which explains the degree of wealth.
It went downhill with the Scythians from
the 4th century BC onwards.
Herodotus tells us a
thing or two about the Scythians after his visit there.
