I am notifying readers that I have taken the liberty of adding a reference to a discussion in my book, Through the Jade Gate to Rome (2009), establishing that Tashkurgan was known as 'Puli' during the Later Han Dynasty. There was no reference previously backing this statement in the article and a reference was needed (an many others are still needed for other assertions in the article). The discussion in my book contains a number of quotes from recognised published scholars which establishes that Han 'Puli' referred to the region of modern Tashkurgan, I believe, beyond question, so I thought I was justified to refer to it. I hope this is not seen as self-promotion.John Hill (talk) 08:29, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
