In the Roman mind, castration and circumcision were linked as barbaric mutilations of the male genitalia. Juvenal 14.103–104; Tacitus, ''Historia'' 5.5.1–2; Martial 7.30.5, 7.35.3–4, 7.82.5–6, 11.94; Margaret Williams, "Jews and Jewish Communities in the Roman Empire," in ''Experiencing Rome: Culture, Identity and Power in the Roman Empire'' (Routledge, 2000), p. 325; Mary Smallwood, ''The Jews under Roman Rule: From Pompey to Diocletian'' (Brill, 1976), p. 431; Jack N. Lightstone, "Roman Diaspora Judaism," in ''A Companion to Roman Religion'' (Blackwell, 2007), p. 362. When the cult of Cybele was imported to Rome at the end of the 3rd century BC, its traditional eunuchism was confined to foreign priests (the ''Galli)'', while Roman citizens formed sodalities (Glossary of ancient Roman religion#sodalitas) to perform honors in keeping with their own customs. Eric Orlin, "Urban Religion in the Middle and Late Republic", pp. 63–64, and John Scheid, "Sacrifices for Gods and Ancestors", p. 268, in ''A Companion to Roman Religion''. It has been argued that the Apostle Paul (Paul the Apostle)'s exhortation of the Galatians (Epistle to the Galatians) not to undergo circumcision (Circumcision controversy in early Christianity) should be understood not only in the context of Jewish circumcision (Brit milah), but also of the ritual castration associated with Cybele, whose cult was centered in Galatia. Paul of Tarsus, ''Galatians'' 4:21–5:1; Susan M. Elliott, "Choose Your Mother, Choose Your Master: Galatians 4:21–5:1 in the Shadow of the Anatolian Mother of the Gods," ''Journal of Biblical Literature'' 118.4 (1999) 661–683, especially pp. 680–681, and "The Rhetorical Situation Revisited: Circumcision and Castration," in ''Cutting Too Close for Comfort: Paul’s Letter to the Galatians in Its Anatolian Cultic Context'' (T&T Clark International, 2003) ''passim''. Among Jews, circumcision was a marker of the Covenant (Covenant (biblical)); diaspora Jews (Jewish diaspora) circumcised their male slaves and adult male converts (Conversion to Judaism), in addition to Jewish male infants. Lightstone, "Roman Diaspora Judaism," p. 363. Although Greco-Roman writers view circumcision as an identifying characteristic of Jews, they believed the practice to have originated in Egypt, Several Greco-Roman writers, such as Strabo, regarded the Jews as of Egyptian descent, in what was apparently their understanding of the Exodus. Peter Schäfer, ''Judeophobia: Attitudes toward Jews in the Ancient World'' (Harvard University Press, 1997), pp. 93–94. and recorded it among peoples they identified as Arab (Pre-Islamic Arabia), Syrian (Syria (Roman province)), Phoenician (Phoenicians), Colchian (Colchis), and Ethiopian (History of Ethiopia#Classical Antiquity). Smallwood, ''The Jews under Roman Rule'', p. 430; Schäfer, ''Judeophobia'', pp. 93–94. The Neoplatonic philosopher Sallustius associates circumcision with the strange familial–sexual customs of the Massagetae who "eat their fathers" and of the Persians (Persian people#Ancient history and origin) who "preserve their nobility by begetting children on their mothers." Schäfer, ''Judeophobia'', p. 99. In Greek mythology Gangaridai has been noted in Greek myth too. In Apollonius of Rhodes' ''"Argonautika"'', Datis, a chieftain, leader of the Gangaridae who was in the army of Perses III, fought against Aeetes during the Colchian civil war. Colchis was situated in modern day Georgia (Georgia (country)), on the east of the Black Sea. Aeetes was the famous king of Colchia against whom Jason and the Argonauts undertook their expedition in search of the "Golden Fleece". Perses III was the brother of Aeetes and king of the Taurian tribe. Virgil also speaks of the valour of the Gangaridae in his Georgics. Yaglidere was a part of Colchis Kingdom, Pontus Kingdom, Rome Empire, Trabzon Greek Empire, and Ottoman Empire in history. History The Hurri (Hurrians) settled in the Artvin area in 2000 BC and were succeeded by the Urartu civilisation, based in Lake Van. Later, the area was part of the kingdom of Colchis but was always vulnerable to invasions, first the Scythians from across the Caucasus, then the Muslim armies led by Habib, son of Caliph Uthman who controlled the area from 853 AD to 1023 when it was conquered by the Byzantines (Byzantine Empire) from the Sac Emirate allied to the Abbasids. The Seljuk Turks led by Alparslan conquered the area in 1064. With the collapse of the Seljuks, the Artvin area came under the control of the Ildeniz, one of the Anatolian Turkish beyliks (Anatolian beyliks) The Turks: Middle ages, Hasan Celāl Güzel, Cem Oğuz, Osman Karatay, 2002 Les Origines de l'Empire ottoman, Mehmet Fuat Köprülü, Gary Leiser, 1992, page 82 European and Islamic trade in the early Ottoman state: the merchants of Genoa and Turkey, Kate Fleet, 1999, page 49 Turkey, Verity Campbell, 2007, page 35 Turkey, James Bainbridge, 2009, page 33 Eastern Turkey: The Bradt Travel Guide, Diana Darke, 2011, page 77 ref
