I'm sorry Susan I *knew* you were serious but I couldn't resist a little fun.
I get your point. How much credit do you place in the Mil/Tia conection
to Egypt and/or the Mil/Scotia connection to the same area? Mil was
supposed to be a Scythian prince while Scotia or Tia was a Daughter of
Pharoah. Where *did the Scythians come from*? I seriously doubt anyone
came from Siberia Brrrrrr! Now maybe there was a group that went there
with a celtic language tradition .....??? Check the Oxford English
Dictionary and see if it gives the connection between the two.
