    The most common Y-DNA haplogroups among Assyrians is T-M184, at 41.5%, which is frequent in Middle Eastern Jews, Georgians, Druze and Somalians.[219] In a DNA test comprising 48 Assyrian male subjects from Iran, the Y-DNA haplogroups J-M304, found in its greatest concentration in the Arabian peninsula, and the Indo European-linked R1b (specifically R-M269), were also frequent at 29.2% each.[220]In other tests taken, R1b has reached 40%, making it a major haplogroup among Assyrians.[221] R-M269 was brought from the Pontic–Caspian steppe in Eurasia,

    a region hypothesised to be the Proto-Indo-European homeland, which went south over the Caucasus mountains via Anatolia and into Mesopotamia at around 6,000 B.P.[222] The high frequency of the Atlantic modal haplotype in Assyrians showcases that the ancient Assyrians had considerable genetic interaction with the peoples who migrated to northwest Europe, a region where the R1b haplogroup is common.

    Perhaps the Persians and Hittites helped in spreading R1b?
