*****GK: ARDAGAST is the recorded name of a 6th c.
"Sklav" leader. It is not certain that this is a
Slavic name (B. Struminski, "Were the Antes Eastern
Slavs?" , HARVARD UKRAINIAN STUDIES, III-IV
(1979-1980), pt.2, pp. 786ff. argued that it wasn't,
and suggested a Gothic provenance.) Also: if the
original ARDAGAST is a garbled RADAGAST, it is
comparable to RADAGAISUS (+405). And the -GAST ending
seems quite Germanic ( cf. ARBOGAST). Note that
ARDAGAST's "Sklav" colleagues (PERIGAST, DAURIT) bore
names whose Slavic identity is equally
>(Piotr) <baldimer> (= <volodime^r>, <vladimirU>,

******GK: Khan Omurtag's 821 foundation which became
Simeon's capital? What is the date of this Greek
"perslaban"? Would it be anthroponymic in origin?
PERSLAV (like PEREMYSL)?*****
NB: I'm not questioning the basic conclusion, just
looking at some of the peripheral evidence. (George)
