Based on previous research on the very strong correlations between the Burushaski and Phrygian languages, expanded in this article, we discuss in detail the direct mythological correspondence between Burushaski hargin 'dragon' and Phrygian argwitas 'dragon'. We also contemplate a possible etymology for Indo-European *silVbVr- 'silver'. The proposition of a historical link between Burushaski and Phrygian is reconsidered, as well as the gene evidence that locates the Burusho within North-Western Indo-European.
