Bokhara[edit]

I notice the article uses Bokhara, while the entry is listed under Bukhara with a redirect from Bokhara. Should we alter the spelling? Kd5mdk 12:28, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

What is this??[edit]

" Zhang Qian clearly identifies Parthia as an advanced urban civilization that farmed grain and grapes, made silver coins and leather goods. " - Um, okay - what does this have to do with Transoxiana? Or is this a editorial mistake? I don't have the source to check. HammerFilmFan (talk) 11:25, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
