The Hittites and Mittani signed a treaty with the name of the Vedic
Gods - Indra, Mitra, Varuna and Nasatyas - around 1400 BC. The
Hittites have a treatise on chariot racing written in almost pure Sanskrit. The Indo-Europeans of
the ancient Middle East spoke Indo-Aryan, not Indo-Iranian
languages and thereby show a Vedic culture in that region of the
world as well.(*42) This shows that Vedic culture extended from India to Anatolia by 2000 BC.
When the Linear B of the Minoan Script, dating from 1500-1100 BC,
was deciphered it proved to be an earlier form of the Greek
language. This has pushed the Greek presence in Greece back to
2000 or even 3000 BC, changing the Aryan entrance into this region
back many centuries.
