Not sure, Jackie, but something is wrong with your account.
(Bactrian: αρια, arya) ... Bactrian was natively known as αρια or "Arya" language.
Anyway, yes Arya is an Indo-Iranian term (Sanskrit, Old Persian/Avestan). It's an ethnonym, but suffered from misuse in the last century by some Germans and other folks. Some more from Wikipedia:Quote:Bactria (from Βακτριανή, the Hellenized version of Old Persian Bāxtri; Bactrian: Baktra; Persian/Pashto: باختر Bākhtar; Tajik: Бохтар; Chinese: 大夏 Dàxià) is the ancient name of a historical region located south of the Amu Darya and west of Gandhara.
Ceci n'est pas un seing.
