The most mentions about Scythians can be found in Greek sources, for example in the works of Herodotus, the "Father of History". Everywhere we find tales about the Scythian horsemen. As far back as in the 7th century В.С. the Scythian cavalry while pursuing its enemy - Cimmerians, invaded Transcaucasia, the Middle East and Asia Minor. Allied with the Assyrians the Scythians crushed down Media and Babylon, ravaged Syria and Asia Minor. These wars created the fame that Scythians were invincible warriors.
