Scythia is called the region to the north and northeast of the Black Sea. Mount Caucasus, where Prometheus 1 was nailed and kept bound for many years, is a Scythian mountain. Scythia is the abode of one of the WINDS, the North Wind Boreas 1. The inhabitants of this region called themselves Skoloti, but the Greeks called them Scythians. There were three main clans among the Scythians, deriving from the three sons of their ancestor Targitaus.
