comment Was Eumenes really a non Greek by birth?
Very distinct. Thracians were an agricultural people. Their language was Indo-European, but otherwise has remained uncatagorized. The Sythians were pastoralists who spoke an Eastern Iranian language.

It might help to define "sectionalism" as you are considering it.

comment Is the steel pan the only acoustic musical instrument to be invented in the 20th century and used widely around the world?
@NathanCooper - Looking over the questions there, I think this one would be kinda out of place.

comment Was it impossible for the Germans to arrange a plane to East Asia for Subhas Bose?
@DVK - A bit of both. Without the sigint they wouldn't have known where or when to look. But to borrow from Douglas Adams, The Pacific... is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. Presumably the same sigint would have been just as capable of finding out that the Japanese were transporting Bose, but a submarine would have been much harder to find.

comment Proportion of footmen and soldiers to knights in battles
Note that the term man-at-arms is sometimes used interchangably with Knight, and sometimes not. Figuring if your intended meaning matches with that of the particular medieval chorniclers in question would be a difficult task.
