Roxolani and Iaziges
#16
Quote:The Iaz were NOT Sarmatians. And they did NOT have cataphracts, and therefore did not use a contus. This "legend" has filtered though so many quasi-historical books that it has somehow been accepted as fact. For good info on who the Iaz were, read Janos Harmatta's book on the Sarmatians and their language. The Roxolani WERE Sarmatians, being the lead group of Alanic society that followed the Iaz into Pannonia.

Hi,

As far as I know Hungarian academists have a common agreement that the iaziges were sarmatians. I have just read a compilation of studies published by the Erkel Ferenc Museum of Gyula and the Móra Ferenc Museum of Szeged in 1998 called Jazigok, Roxolán, Alánok - Szarmaták az Alföldön (Iaziges, Roxolans, Alans - Sarmatians on the Great Plain) and it is explicitly stated that the the Iaziges, Roxolans and Alans were all Sarmatians.
In addition I ran a quick google search about János Harmatta's publications and found this:
http://www.kroraina.com/sarm/jh/index.html

I didn't have the time to read the full text just gave it a quick look, but i found no trace of Harmatta saying that Iaziges were not sarmatians.

I'm confused (not about the use of contus but about the statement that iaziges were not sarmatians) :???:
Valete,
