Meaning & History

Means "beyond the river Oxus", derived from Latin trans meaning "across, beyond" combined with the Latin noun Oxus meaning "the river Oxus".

This is the Latin name for the historical region of Transoxiana in Central Asia. It is a direct translation of Hyperoxiane, the Greek name for the region.
