  • Mostly to Georgia (Iberia) thereafter - indirect Roman influence from late 1st century BCE...
  • The Moschii as an identifiable people fade from view after the collapse of the Persian Empire in the 4th century BCE. Claudius Ptolemy, in his Geographos (2nd Cent. CE), refers to the southeastern flanking chain of the Caucasus Mountains as the "Moschici Mons" and even today, in fact, the mountain chain forming part of the frontier between Georgia and Turkey is called (in Russian) the "Meschetskii Chrebet".
