About Iris Iris ('Ar-ṛan /ˈʕar.rˤən/), also known as Ancient Riyan, is the language of ancient Ire (Aye-re, Iris: 'Argaṭ, officially Ṛwyed-nwet 'Argaṭ /rˤʊwejɛd‿əŋwɛt ʕargatˤ/), a Bronze Age kingdom (c. 16th century BCE) in the Central Basin of Soltenna, after which the river Acre (Riyan: Airé /ˈirɛ/) is named. It is the oldest currently attested Rietic language, having been spoken as the official court and liturgical language of Basin dynasties, including Ire, before declining in use to Old Kwang in (year TBD).
