Yes, also the Kushans in India (and about).
Authors mistook this three sometimes and called Ethiopia the eastern ones too. And this is the explanation why one of the Magi who visited Jesus is considered black - he came from Kush (from Mesopotamia) ... so he was Ethiopian... (and not because he was from South-Arabia, what self-respecting Magi would come from fucking there?)
This mistake has Hungarian aspect too. Noe had three sons, Shem, Ham and Japhet. Shem got Asia, Ham Africa and Japhet Europe. Now we have two Biblical traditions in the chronicles. One says that Magyars are descended from one of the sons of Japhet: Magog. The other one however says we are the descendants of Magor, brother of Hunor and son of Nimrod, the great hunter, son of Kush, son of Ham.
Steppe people were often considered the descendants of Magog by westerners so that's a no brainer.
The other one... well. Kushans (of India and about) are probably the Yuezhi people who were the neighbors of the Huns and had the similar culture of all the steppe people, they also might been mistaken with Hepthalite Huns who pushed into the Kushan Empire from the north.
