Actually (though I get your joke) the derivation of "Amazon" from a-maza or
without the (right) breast, although popularly accepted by some Ancient
Greeks (eg., see Strabo 11.5.1) is not attested. Herodotus mentions them in
the same passage Wolfe used to name his Scythian character Oior ("Man"); see
Hdt. 4.110.
