I'm not sure that the Scyths do speak Gothic; it may be simply that
the territory is called "Scythia" even though occupied by Goths.
"Bulgaria" is analogous: the inhabitants are not Bulgars and don't
speak Bulgar (an extinct Turkic language).

The latter, I think.
BTW, the people who speak Vlox are the Velos^c^ii, but I don't
know much about their language.

Very little: a phonology and some con-orthography. See the list
