Mary Boyce speaks of several lands and individuals who are not Aryan in the Avesta (Farvardeen Yasht) that are venerated.  One of them in particular is Aghvi.  But I think I"m transliterating the name wrong.  Could he be the Aghuyu? 

118. We worship the Fravashi of the holy Hugau.  We worship the Fravashi of the holy Anghuyu.  We worship the Fravashi of the holy Gauri; We worship the Fravashi of the holy Yushta, the son of Gauri [or, the holy Gaorayana].  We worship the Fravashi of the holy Mazdra-vanghu; We worship the Fravashi of the holy Srira-vanghu.  We worship the Fravashi of the holy Ayuta.  We worship the Fravashi of the holy Suro-yazata. – Farvardeen Yasht 30.118
