- 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.

"Enarees" to be Scythians. You need another example
for your hypothesis******
