Yeah I was suprised the user did not put the other part of Iranica. Anyways it seems like a good article since Iranica has an entry by Schmitt on it and Professor. Rudiger Schmitt is an expert in ancient Iranian history and Old Persian/Avesta languages. --alidoostzadeh 14:00, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

i am not expert in this field and not a historian .but only for discussion i review here the concepts about cassite in one of iranian sites: The Kassites (c. 1530-1150 BC) were one of the Aryan Tribes with dark blue eyes and blond hair who settled in the valley of Sefid Rud River (present Gilan) and gave their name to the north sea (Caspian). Qazvin is also the Arabic form of Caspian. Other names originating from their names are Kashan (Kassian) and Kashf Rud River (called Kasp Rud in Ferdosi's Shahnameh). Inhabitants of Kurdistan, villagers of Block Zahara, Lorestan, Beuyer Ahmad and Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari, Jebal Barez and many other regions are from the same Kassite from. That is why many people with dark blue eyes and blonde hair are seen among them. Even today, in the city of Rasht, people with blue eyes are called Kaas Aqaa. With the passage of time, the Kassite's power grew and they conquered a vast part of the world and founded great civilizations, including what is called Hydraulic Civilization. The Ziggurat of Choghazanbil, mills and waterfalls of Shushtar and Qanaats (underground waterways) are thought to be their works. They built many temples and great bridges in the name of Anahita. All the bridges in Persian now called Pol Dokhtar (Girl's Bridge) are remainders of Anahita's Bridges.www.tavoos.mag i am not myself in complete agreement with this article but some of the above issues also have mentioned by PROFESSOR REZA in his book about ARAN published in IRAN,[also i am not completely certain about citation.]Spitman 21:41, 5 May 2007 (UTC) also i have found some useful information from a book about iran:many of the word and phrases shows that their language is from caucasian origin ,may be in relation to in kassite dynasity was a symbol of god.also they were originaly non indoeuropian but a group of nordic or indoeuropian live or even king of them,and due to this some of them speak in indoeuropian language.some say that there are from central zagros .citation:HISTORY OF EARLY IRAN:BY GOERGE GLENN CAMERON.Spitman 21:47, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

"Iranian" or "Persian"?[edit]

I do not believe that "Iranian" is an appropriate (or whatsoever common) term for a people predating Iran the nation-state. Iranian is a nationality, not an ethnic distinction. 15:35, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Need for Original Script[edit]

The term Caspian is no longer used in Iran and the Persian script of today bears no relationship to the original Old-Iranian script in which such a name would have been used. The Caspian sea is not called the Caspian sea in Iran, and the only name that possibly bears any relationship to the word Caspian is the name of the city of Qazvin (ﻗﺬوﻳﻦ).Safa.Alai (talk) 20:28, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
