PARSICI MONTES a small chain of mountains in the western part of Gedrosia, beyond the river Arabres. Forbiger has conjectured that they are the same as the present Buskurd Mts. Connected doubtless with these mountains, and in the same district was the Parsis of Ptolemy (6.21.5), which he calls a metropolis, an opinion in which Marcian assents (100.24, ed. Müller), and another tribe whom Ptolemy calls the Parsirae or Parsidae (6.21.4). It seems not unlikely that these are the same people whom Arrian calls Pasirae (Ind. 100.26) and Pliny Pasires (6.23. s. 26).
