R1a

I've been talking up R1b around here, especially M269, but that's not the only lineage associated with the Pontic steppe. So let's discuss our prominent cousins, from R1a - especially M417 and its successor Z93.

R1a-Z93 is associated with the south Slavs, the mainland Greeks (now), and Andronovo. Andronovo is an ancient Bronze Age site in the middle of southern Eurasia, generally thought to be the Aryan homeland - that is, the basis of the Vedas and Iran. This is not to be confused with Afanasievo (spelling varies); they're R1b.

It is of some interest that the Slavs, too, are R1a. Is this from the Alan (Ossete) aristocracy?
