The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Bamiyan? AFG

Tarn suggested that Cartana be located at Bamiyan while Cunningham supported the theory that Cartana-Tetragonis should be located at Begram. Fraser refutes Cunningham's assertion based on archaeological evidence from Begram.

Ideas from Pleaides conscenti on the likelihood of correlating http://pleiades.stoa.org/places/60476/ with Bamiyan (viz. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/208)?

Jeff: I think somebody with expertise in that area, or who wanted to acquire some(!), would need to go read the stuff cited here thanks to BAtlas and try to get under what rationale Edrosy used to write "Bamiyan?" in the directory. Maybe post a note to the Pleiades discussion list and ask after volunteers?
