Thanks so much for your help. I think I am all settled. I got more hints
on non-Anglophone uses of ³Iberia² and its linguistic fellows, and learned a
good skill for using the OED. Here is another reference I had.
l. 317, p. 53. ---------Margiana to the Hyrcanian cliffs
Of Caucasus, and dark Iberial dales,]
Margiana and Hycrcania lay northward of Arochosia towards the
Caspian Sea. Margaiana is mentioned by Pliny, L. vi. 16. --------The
Hyrcanian ³cliffs of Caucasus² and ³the Iberian dale² are joined
together by Strabo, who says, that the hihghest part of the Caucasus
bordered on Albania, Iberia, and Colchis 
 -------The Iberian dales are termed dark, as the
Country abounded in forests. Tacitus describes the Iberians ³salutosos
³ locos incolentes.² ANNAL. vi. 34.[i] <#_edn1>
[i] <#_ednref1> Milton, 1796, p. 414.
