The Cities of the Medes was in the region of Media. It adjoined Mannae.
The Aramaic Translation to Amos (4:3) says that the Israelites were exiled to Beyond the Mountains of Mannae. This region involved the Kingdoms of both Assyria and Urartu. Israelite Exiles were in both areas as reflected in the Histories of Armenia.
In these areas the Israelites federated with other peoples known generically as the Sons of Gomer. They included the Cimmerians and Scythians. Other scholars reached similar conclusions before us. They usually equated all of the Cimmerians and company with the Lost Ten Tribes. We however only make such an equation for a portion of them.
Two separate possible scenarios exist.
Which of the two is the more correct, does not overduly affect our understanding as to what happened.
(1) Did the Cimmerians come mainly from the north, go south, link up with Israel, and then move back northwards?
(2) Did they originate in the Middle East and then later move northward?
Classical, especially Roman, sources support the first possibility. That is how most authorities also describe the situation. It is also the view we incline to.
Archaeological findings, as distinct from archaeologists, are more supportive of the second option.
Even though we may not consider the Cimmerians to have mainly come from the Middle East the fact that such a possibility is considered to have existed is important. It highlights the feasibility of Israelites have comprised a good portion of those Cimmerians who really were in the Middle East and later moved northward.
