      Nerys Patterson of Harvard University has pointed out that there
      is a striking similarity between Hariti and Rhiannon (Welsh in the 12th
      century). R. is making a switch from predator to protectress
      and is accompanied by a pair of birds.

      The model of cultural transmission through transnational networks
      includes a notion that artisans belonged to an itinerant class, perhaps
      one of many in the ancient world.

      Even tough they lived in Thracia, the Gundestrup silversmiths may not have
      considered themselves Thracian.

      They might instead have resembled the Enarees of Scythia, as they were
      desvribed by Herodotus and Hippocrates.

      The most famous figure on the Gundestrup cauldron is the
      stag-antlered Cernunnos. Heinz Mode, a researcher in Halle
      (Martin Luther University) noted a striking similarity between
      that figure and a seal-stone from the Indus Valley site of Mohenjo-Daro,
      dated to the second millenium BC.

      Gothically

      ... *****GK: Both Herodotus and Hippocrates considered the Enarees to be Scythians. You need another example for your hypothesis******

        *****GK: Both Herodotus and Hippocrates considered the
        "Enarees" to be Scythians. You need another example
        for your hypothesis******
