The first use of the Turkey name, TRYCAE, accepted by the scientific community, was recorded in the 1st century AD by Roman historians named Pomponius Mela and Plinius. The people living in the east of Azov were recorded as Turcae/Tyrcae. Expressions close to the word “Turk” are found in Chinese sources in BC. It takes place in the 3rd century. Two Türkiyes (Tourkia) are mentioned in Byzantine sources, the first of which is “western Turkey”, which is the territory of present-day Hungary.

The other is “eastern Turkey” and the territory of today’s Ukraine. These states are the Caspian state, which is referred to as Eastern Turkey, between the years 651-983, it dominated those lands, mainly covering the whole of Ukraine.
Another conclusion that comes out of this is that the Turkish states in Hungary, which is called western Turkey, Ukraine, which is called eastern Turkey, and in southern Egypt, which is also called Devlet it Turkey, are all Kipchak Turks.
