Or saluki if that is your preference. Paul Domski sent me this link, which caused me to reply: “Nice image. I have other Chinese saluki- tazi images, some even older, but not this one. Frustrating thing is that the article propagates the Arab origin myth– I have older images from China than any available from the Middle East!” Maybe if I ever sell that book…
Here is the oldest I have, circa 450 AD:
The Brits found various tazis (OK, salukis if you must speak Arabic!) in Iraq because that is where they looked. (They found aboriginal Afghans , also tazis, in Afghanistan, and promptly ruined them in typical Edwardian show- dog fashion).
Salukis are Asian.
