#210580 - 04/22/13 06:31 PM Not just a camel
Loc: Louisville, Kentucky
I googled bactrian, to make sure I'd remembered the correct number of humps, and to my surprise found this:
The Bactrian language (Bactrian: αρια, arya), also known as Altbaktrish, is an extinct Eastern Iranian language ... Bactrian was natively known as αρια or "Arya" language. Because Bactrian was written predominantly in an alphabet based on the Greek script ... Among Indo-Iranian languages, the use of the Greek script is unique to Bactrian.
Edit--shoot, sorry about the numbers; I don't know how to make the true depiction show here.
