Sakan Literature


No written works have survived from the Old Sakan language and it is not known as to whether this language had ever been written down. Stories of the “one-eyed Arimaspi” and the treasure-guarding griffins as well as legends of the origins of the Sakas have been narrated in the Sakan language. Herodotus has reported the Sakas as having drawn a simile between snowflakes and feathers, this being indicative of their subtle poetic inclination.

The remarkable literary heritage and the rich epic stories in the Āsi language that had been narrated and preserved through oral transmission indicate, in all probability, the depth of the oral ancient Sakan literature.
