Eth. BU´DII (Eth. Βούδιοι, Hdt. 1.101; Steph. B. sub voce. Herodotus mentions among the tribes by whom Media was inhabited the Budii and the Busae. (Βουσαί: see also Steph. s. v.) It is quite uncertain in what part of that country they dwelt. Ritter (Erdk. vol. ii. pp. 896, 799, 902) conjectures that they, as well as the Magi, belonged to the Priest-caste, supposing them (though without any apparent reason) to have been worshippers of Buddha.
