Meaning & History

In English and several other languages, this is the name of a historical region in Central Asia, which was known as Hyperoxiane to the ancient Greeks and as Transoxania to the Romans. Both names mean "beyond the river Oxus" in their respective languages.

As you can see, this particular name for the region is basically the Latin name with a bit of the original Greek name thrown in, which effectively makes it a combination of the two names.
