I've included Lalaith's note that the Wainriders seem to be a direct inspiration of a people named "Amaxoluoi" in Greek. However Lalaith doesn't mention the historical sources where Amaxoluoi are mentioned, and a Wikipedia or Google search doesn't return anything (at least with this spelling) other than Lalaith's article itself. I have found an online Latin text where "Amaxolii" are mentioned, and this only from a Czech or Polish site. I don't doubt that Lalaith has/had a wide range of studies and knowledge, but finding an external source would complement the article. And I find the lack of online sources weird.

:Some scanning error in Lalaith's source: the name should be ''hamaxobioi'' "wagon-dwellers" (lat. ''hamaxobii''), a Scythian people described by many ancient authors. Preferably Attican spelling with ''h'', but may also occur as ''amaxobioi''. --Tik 19:19, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Andreas Möhn has permanently removed many of the sub-pages of ''Lalaith's Middle-earth Science Pages'' and turned the material into purchasable e-books.  This has rendered many references to those pages obsolete, as can be seen by clicking the links in the Wainriders page.  Should all of these links throughout Tolkien Gateway be removed?  If yes, can this be done automatically or need it be done on an article-by-article basis? --Gamling, 01:47, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
