Medes Known as Guti of Gutium Between Elamites to South & Subartu to North in Zagros Mountains During Ice Age


During the Ice Age, the progeny of Elam (a son of Shem) settled in the river valleys of the southern section of the Zagros mountains, then to the north the progeny of Madai (a son of Japheth), and to the north of that land of Madai (later known as Medan) settled the Subartu, named for Sabir who was a son of Togarmah (a grandson of Japheth). The progeny of Madai were also known as the Guti or Gutians, their language little understood but said to have similarities to Tocharian (Turks of western China).
