OMGosh!! I'm reading a paranormal book 'A Step Away' book 2 in the Wanderer Series by Jocelyn Stover and in the stories there's a Wanderer named Zafar but Jocelyn spells it as 'Zafir.' Until this moment, I thought she made up these names! It's so cool to discover there's real history to her imaginaton. TY Marty!!

Thank you Marty. I was unaware of this Kingdom and its importance during the early Christian period.

Fascinating and intriguing, perhaps I can visit it in my next reincarnation. I certainly enjoy reading about these intriguing discoveries.
