Lakhmids

Will there be an errata to allow the Sassanids to use Lakhmid allies? The current Early Arab Ally is rather limited. Or will the Sassanids be an ally choice for the Lakhmids?

I would think Lakhmids would have a sassinid ally.

I have no doubt there should be a Sassanid Ally option for the Lakhmids but bearing in mind that Lakhmids under Al-Mundhir provided up to 1/3 of the Sassanid force at Callinicum in 531 AD it would seem reasonable for a Lakhmid ally option for the Sassanids at least in 531. I will have to check the relevant volume of al-Tabari when I get a chance for other possibilities.
