I think the scholarly consensus is that terms like "Scythians" and "Huns", among several others, are basket terms for an array of amalgamated bands of different peoples of the Eurasian steppe who formed evanescent alliances for purposes of plunder.

The same might be said reference Sea peoples....in that prima evidence remains sketchy.

I have found many accounts when the term Scythian is being used when it had long passed into the era of the Sarmatians or Alani.
What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.
