On this map just around the title in upper right corner is situated BOI tribe which is important in attempt to reconstruct modern etymology of battle, heraldry, military leaders, titles, banners and anything else in this sense.
section with position of BOI tribe
at the same time I noticed Teutoburg, while irrelevant for our subject I thought it's position is interesting, namely today this town is called ERDUT and situated in Bačka, Croatia, next to BANAT and bellow Srem. It is BANat we want in this case.
But tribe BOI down in 100 BC was situated in what is today Hungary, between lake Balaton basin and Danube.
on many historic ocurances of Boii it is said that
They lived in unwalled villages, without any superfluous furniture; for as they slept on beds of leaves and fed on meat and were exclusively occupied with war and agriculture, their lives were very simple, and they had no knowledge whatever of any art or science. Their possessions consisted of cattle and gold, because these were the only things they could carry about with them everywhere according to circumstances and shift where they chose. They treated comradeship as of the greatest importance, those among them being the most feared and most powerful who were thought to have the largest number of attendants and associates.
In short these folk was always ready for the move, to attack or defend, extremely fisty and holds a whole range of ancient military merit because it was a lot writen about them. This map shows some of the encounters with them.
Their accounts show such significant dispersion that one may suspect if it was name of a tribe in sense of blood or family relation (cause tribe is basic unit for everything else that led to modern society we know today) or was it something else behind name Boii?
First tribe had mother as central character because of obvious relation of children to mother and birth kin and also cause men lived apart from women and children, they lived for hunt and some times pillage or herding and marriage as we know it today was invented later and in begin it was a royal thing used as bonding medium, while relations, love and familiar ties always existed. Lifestyle was more loose back in prehistory and ancient times before arrival of Christianity.
Platulus said about captivated Boi;
He is no more Sicilian, he is Boi ,he is with Boi woman. (At nunc Siculus non est, Boius est, Boiam terit)
If this was literal translation it would mean that anyone married into Boi family, even a man from another tribe would became Boi, instead of taking women into his tribe.
But there meaning of "woman of the Boii" is a mockery which actualy is "convicted criminal's restraint collar".... This will say that Boii were also outsiders of legal system where they would intrude or fight.
In this case BOI meant BOJ or VOJ in Slavic tongue which means Battle which Boii have been trough and trough.
