The first nomad in Biblical history is Cain, bound to roam the land of Nod, east of the garden God wanted as his father's abode. The Hebrew Nod does not afford any geographical indications, but a clue comes from the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Bible, written in Egypt in the 3rd century B.C., where instead of Nod we read Naid. Considering that the Greek diphthong /ai/ was pronounced /a:/ in the early Ptolemaic period, the exiled Cain would go towards *Nad or something similar. From Hittite chronicles we know of the territory of Nata (upati Nata), in the region of the Hulaya River, today identified with the Çarşamba Çay, which flows from Lake Suğla. It is a karst river, flowing into the Konya Plain, belonging to Lycaonia in Classical antiquity.
