It is about Aryans in Central Asia. Taittiriya Samhita/Aranyaka/Brahmana were basically written in Central Asia prior to 2,000 BCE, - it is mentioned that the rains came there around Autumnal equinox and not in July an August as it happens in India.
They were IE people and knew themselves as Aryans. The Greek branch took the name west, lost the intervening 'r', and became 'ionians'. 'Aryan' - 'r' = 'Ayan'.
Yes, before the coming of IE people, many regions had their own cultures like Cucuteni-Trypillia culture in Moldova.
'The region' I was referring to is Central Asia and the cultures there . It doesnt include C-T or Moldova . I do realise that IE people did not bring the first culture to Central Asia in fact, I think I eductaed YOU on that subject ?
