You be the judge

Picts were possibly connected with Prittani people, which may be from cruth. It has been suggested that prittani means "the makers, formers ( of materials)". In a parliament, the Speaker acts judicially and Acts are the verbal decisions made. Brehon law is connected with judicial action. It appears that the possible root of Prittani, * krt, as in Sanskrit "well-formed" text, has a semantic of "judge". Then "Prittani" and "Brehon" may both describe judicial acts. That is, these may mean the druids as leaders.
Here are details:

brąth judgement, gu brąth, for ever (pron. gu brąch) "till Judgment", so Irish, Old Irish brįth, judgment, Welsh brawd, Middle Breton breut, Gaulish bratu-, *brātu-; *brā, *bera, judge, decide, from Indo-European bher, in the sense of "say", as in abair. . Hence also breath, or breith *br@.t-,
breath judgment, so Irish, Old Irish breth, *br@.tā, Welsh bryd, Gaulish vergo-bretus, *br@.to-s.
(Vergo Bret was the elected chief magistrate).
britheamh a judge, Irish breitheamh, Old Irish brithem, g. britheman; root br@.t, of breath, judgment,
( this became "Brehon law").
-------------------------------
Indonesia has about 50% Sanskrit words. In Bali, the water goddess is Danu, connected with Danube , Dneister rivers and maybe Dannan of Eire. The village-people were desa in a lord-client structure as in boaire-desa of Irish lord-clients.

Bali : kerta. Judge

Old Java.: kĕrta (cf kṛta) aṅĕrtani to adjudicate, to give a decision on .
.kArta adj. relating to or treating of the kRt suffixes...

कर्त karta m. separation
कर्त karta m. distinction


cruth form, figure, Old Irish cruth, Welsh pryd, *qr@.tu-s, root qer, make; Latin cerus, creator, creo, English create; Lithuanian kurił, build; Sanskrit kar, make, kr@.tas, made.

Here is some more stuff to link Indonesia back with India and Iran:

Telugu southeast India. karta "heirs, persons entitled. author." (grammar) nominative case.

dharmakarta : "judge.arbitrator. trustee of temple. executor of estate".

Hindi : karta ." family's senior member to manage affairs."
Old Persian of the Achaemenians. karta meant "village," as in a karta Abiradush nama (a village named Abiradu) in Susa Inscription (Darius Sf, line 46).

Old Persian . karta "deed", from kar 'do, make'. * krt.

However, maybe it's all wrong.
The normal idea is that the word is "Prittani" but in a list of ancient writers who quote Pytheas, only 2 use it : Diodorus of Sicily and Marcian of Heraclea. The others use "Britt - " . Maybe Pytheas did a typo on a grease spot in his papyrus so that a B became a II, the Greek letter for P.

Then "Brehon" and "Britain" are possibly the same word, connected with "Brettanos" of Gaul, the father of Kelto. Vergo-"Bret" were the elected chief magistrates of Gauls, who fought Julius Caesar. He used "Britannia".

Very interesting thanks, but the words to focus on would surely be the oldest ones rather than Indonesian, Malay and Hindi. Also the Picts didn't exist as a people at the time the Romans arrived.

They were more of an early medieval people and for most of their history Christian. That probably was a driving force in their uniting with the Scots against the Norse invaders.

Probably the Picts had previously been tribes similar to the southern Celtic.
Sanskrit was also similar to Celtic languages and evidence has been found for Indian trade with Indonesia at 2200 years ago. Roman Greeks settled in south India from 2000 years ago .
The old legend of Scythia comes into play as the Scythians ruled Punjab India at that time and the snake-woman legend of Cambodia's kings resembles the Scythian legend from south Russia. Scythians raided central Poland around 2600 BP.
so swing your golf club on that lot..

Ill try thanks I know that there is a Pali influence on such languages as Thai and probably older Malay type languages spoken in what today is Indonesia.
