Boghach Khan and some notes

Our notes:

  • “Boghach” means about “bull man”
  • 40 is a number popularly used in the Middle East to define “multitude”
  • Kumis is an alcoholic drink derived from fermented mare / mare milk
  • Mount Kazılık roughly corresponds to Mount Aragats, the highest mountain in modern Armenia(which we put on the cover)
  • This legend is certainly of a nature prior to when the text was written, this can be seen from the fact that many of the characters have “almond-shaped eyes”
