The same name appears as "Kambujiya" (or perhaps "Kambaujiya" or "Kamboujiya") in
Old Persian, as Kambojain the Indian epic Mahabharata, as "C-n-b-n-z-y" in Aramaic, "Kambuzia" in Assyrian, "Kambythet" in Egyptian, "Kam-bu-zi-ia" in Akkadian, "Kan-bu-zi-ia" in Elamite, and "Kanpuziya" in Susian language. It appears to have been a very popular name among ancient Iranians. The royal Old Persian name "Kambujiya" or "Kambaujiya" of the Achaemenid line has been linked by numerous scholars with the Sanskrit/ Pāliethnonym Kamboja[See: Ramayana of Valmiki, Canto No VI, The King, p 14, fn 13:6, Ralph T.
