Untitled[edit]

Zagros & Ziggurat are etymologically related, perhaps from Sumerian Zu-Kur = "Distant-Mountain".

highest peak?[edit]

Found the following contradicting information:

  • The highest point in the Zagros range is Mt. Dena at 5098 m/16998 feet
  • The highest point of the range is Zard Kuh (4548 metres)
  • The second highest peak is named Dena.

So what? --Herzi Pinki 23:36, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

thanks! i've demoted Mt. Dena to 2nd place. Haim Berman 11:47, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Seems we have sources that contradict each other and greatly contradict the above. I will try to sort it out. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 23:19, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

map?[edit]

hello, im sorry i accidently edited the article with my question. but i removed it. my question... is there a map of where this mountain range is located? thanks and great website. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.169.193.128 (talk) 02:22, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Someone should add a map showing current political borders to show exact location. I couldn't find any. WikiHuda (talk) 12:28, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

"Other explanations deriving the name from ... are invalid." Tough call. Experts on the matter may agree, but since this is not an expert's forum, a bold statement like this must be sourced. As in inline-citation, preferably. Regards, --G-41614 (talk) 07:19, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
