I found this article about a old kingdom on the Isthmus of Kra call chi tu that was built by the "kit mow" from funan.

i'm really interested in the word "kit mow", is this a word use by the envoy from the sui dynasty for Khmer? would "kit mow" in the ancient language/dialect of the sui dynasty be a pronounciation of Khmer-khamer?.

can any one who is familiar with ancient Chinese dialect or history of the peninsular region shed more light on this?
