Four Old Iranian Ethnic Names

In this article "Saka" is given as a Persian exonym for the Scythians, but the Chinese also called the Saka/Scythians as Sek, and We have a modern Turkish people who call themselves Sakha, which hint at the possibility that "Saka" was an autonym, endonym used by Scytho-Sakas themselves.
