Hi everyone,

My first post and I am looking forward to reading and learning from everyone here.

As the subject of this post shows, I am looking to compile a list of tribes for my small project. So the question is, who were these tribes?

You may possibly need to be a little bit more specific and/or detailed in what you mean? Do you mean of Iran &/or the Persian Empire? 

Herodotus gives alot of peoples names.
Maps of the Persian Empire and Alexander the Great also give provinces of Iran & Persian Empire.
'Sharrukin' on here once posted a list of ancient peoples of the near/middle east somewhere in this forum. If i can find my copy i'll post it.

Some just off top of head:
Persians. Medes. Elamites. Aryans. Susians. Carmanians. Gedrosians. Makran. Parthians. Baluchis. Afghans. Durrani. Turanians. Salm/Sayrima (maybe Sarmatians?) Scythians / Sakas. Sagartians. Alarodians/Urartians. Magi. Parsees. Serpent kings (Azhi-Dahaka etc). Chorasmians/Khwarizm. Mardi. Caspi. Saspires. Iberi. Bactrians.

It is wrong/evil/slavery that i am being Forced (no equal options choice) by the elite authorities & my disadvantaged situation to eat (lots of) Fluoridated (etc) water every meal (grains) every day.

Hi and thank you for your reply. My area of interest is the original tribes which migrated and settled in the Iranian sub continent, which one of them was Achaemenid, I believe.

If you could find the list you referred to and post it here it would be great.
