One thing for sure is that the Slavic word SKITA means WANDER, ROAM. It is a word common to all the Slavs. Now if Scythians were known to be nomads and wanderers, then it is possible that the Slavic word SKITA had come about by taking the word that the Scythians called their tribe of people to mean wander in Slavic. This would bring a whole light on the theory that Slavs were Scythians and rather that Slavs were not Scythians.
