wore afterwards known as "the el-Azd of ^Oraan. Seventy
years later, another branch of the family settled in el-Bahrein,
on the mainland, under Malik-bin-Fahm, a descendant of el-
Azd, who took up his residence at el-Anbar, near el-Hirah, in
the , Irak-'Araby,and founded the kingdom of the Tanukhites,
on the west of the Euphrates. The original historians con
sulted by the eminent French writer just quoted leave it
doubtful whether these Azdites emigrated from Batn-Marr,
in the territory of Mekkah, where they had formed a settle
ment about a.d . 180, 1 or whether they were a detachment
of those who had located themselves in 'Oman upwards of half
a century before. Be that as it may, our author states that
the government of the latter country was held by this Malik-
bin-Fahm, el-Azdy, and by his descendants; from which we
may infer that ^Oinan was probably comprised, at first,
within the dominions of the el-Hirah sovereigns, and became
independent subsequently under the resident princes ol the
same family. The historian llamza records that M$lik-bin-
Fahm was accidently killed by his son Sulaimah, who theie-
upon fled into ^Oman, where he left a large progeny, which
existed a long time after the rise of Islam. ihis casual
notice tends to confirm the inference that there was an in
timate relationship between the el-Azd of 'Oman and tho^u
of the 'Irak-'Araby.
Other so-called Azdite" families appear to have migrated
into 'Oman from Nejd, but at what period it is difficult to
ascertain. Under the head of "the el-Azd, the descendants
of Khatamah," our author enumerates several branches of
them as being settled in that country. But Khatamah was
not, strictly speaking, an Azdite. He was the son ot Anmar,
the son of Nizar," the son of Maadd, the son of Adnan,
1 Ahmed-bin-Yahya, el-Beladzory, mentions this settlement of the el-
Azd, and their subsequent migration into 'Oman, in his B'uttih-d-Biddan,
p. 16. Edited by Goeje, Lugd., 1866.
2 Hence the relationship between the KhatAmah Azdites and the Nizii-
riyyah of 'Oman ; see p. 3, note 1.
