Language[edit]

However, the Avar language is classified as a Caucasian language, while the Eurasian Avars are generally considered Mongolic and/or Turkic. Alexander 007 09:40, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

That is your confusion. The language you mentioned is that of the Caucasian Avars. The connections between Eurasian Avars and Caucasian Avars are not clear. Maybe it should be renamed to Caucasian Avar language to avoid such confusions.--Codrin.B (talk) 12:44, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Quote?[edit]

What the heck has that Paul the Deacon quote to do with Bayan Khagan?? The matters Paul relates happened more than SIXTY YEARS LATER than the time when Bayan's reign ended. User:Basil II 21:56, 22 December 2006 (CET)

Death in 602?[edit]

According to Browning, when the Avars and Slavs (and Persians) sieged Constantinople in 626, it was under the leadership of Khagan Baian. So if he died in 602, how did he, albeit unsuccessfully, siege Constantinople 24 years later? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.98.16.188 (talk) 11:10, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Maybe that information is incorrect or he talks about Bayan II (602-617), although that time frame doesn't seem to match either... --Codrin.B (talk) 12:49, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
