  • A New Dedication from Olbia and the Problems of City Organization and of
           Greco-Barbarian Relations in the 1st Century
    • Authors: Askold I. Ivantchik
      First page: 189
      Abstract: Source: Volume 23, Issue 2, pp 189 - 209This article contains a publication of a dedication by strategoi to Augustus, his heir Gaius Iulius Caesar and to the People, which was found in Olbia in 2006 and dates from the period between the year 1 BC and the year AD 4. It is the earliest inscription from post-Getic Olbia to have been discovered. Analysis of it makes it possible to suggest that Olbia was rebuilt after the rout by Burebistas in the last years BC under Roman control. The state organization of Olbia, which took shape after the city had been restored, reproduced certain features of the Roman constitution. Despite suggestions often voiced to the effect that Scythians or Sarmatians were included among its citizens, they were only granted the status of Olbian citizens later on – in the years 50-80 AD. The city was restored by Greeks who, at least in part, had come from Asia Minor and Thrace.

  • Craniology and the Funerary Rite of the Population of Scythian Neapolis
    • Authors: Alexei A. Kazarnitsky
      First page: 210
      Abstract: Source: Volume 23, Issue 2, pp 210 - 224This article describes an attempt of the comparison between data assembled by archaeologists and physical anthropologists relating to group burials in earth catacombs of the Eastern Necropolis at Scythian Neapolis. A coincidence was identified between variability trends in craniometric and some archaeological features. This was interpreted as evidence for the presence in the urban population of at least two initial groups of different origin, which preserved certain differences in some of the details of the funerary rite used.

  • The Aetiological Myth of the Russian Empire and the Study in Russia of
           Cultural Changes in the North Pontic Region from the 3rd Century to the
           3rd Century (Prior to the 1920s)
    • Authors: Valentina I. Mordvintseva
      First page: 225
      Abstract: Source: Volume 23, Issue 2, pp 225 - 249Cultural change in the “barbarian” world of the North Pontic region from the 3rd century BC to the mid-3rd century AD was not a special field of interest for ancient authors. Classical narratives only contain information about certain manifestations of such processes. In Russia, interest in studying the cultural changes that took place in the steppes of Eastern Europe in Antiquity appeared in the early 18th century, in connection with the accession of new territories to the East and West. The core of the cultural-historical model, which took shape and then developed in Russian historical research, was the idea of a constantly changing succession of peoples in the North Pontic region and of the historical role of this region as a buffer zone between East and West. On this basis, an aetiological myth of the Russian Empire took root, justifying its impressive size, its length along the meta-geographical axis of Eurasia and its historic role in the destiny of Europe. This concept assumed its definitive form in the early 20th century in the works of Mikhail Rostovtsev.

  • On Manifestations of the Cult of Human Skulls in the Knÿshovskoe
           Settlement Dating from the Scythian Period
    • Authors: Marina N. Daragan; Petr A. Gavrish
      First page: 251
      Abstract: Source: Volume 23, Issue 2, pp 251 - 328Human remains have been found in many settlements and fortified settlements of the Scythian period in the forest-steppe zone of the Ukraine. Yet there are substantial differences between the nature of the finds and the circumstances of their positioning in the various settlements concerned. At some sites whole skeletons or parts of skeletons have been found in pits and in habitation levels. At others mainly (and sometimes even exclusively) human skulls or their fragments have been found. A picture of this kind was recorded, in particular, at the fortified settlement of Knÿshovskoe. This article examines the places where human skulls and fragments of the latter were found in the context of cultic and domestic buildings within the Knÿshovskoe settlement. Research was focused specifically on the positions of clay altars and the link between the latter and the anthropological remains within the site. Within the investigated area of the settlement, occupying half a hectare, 110 separate fragments of human skulls were found – 52 altars and 211 pits linked to various structures. Using spatial analysis based on GIS-technology, a firm link was established between the clay altars, human skulls and also the skulls or skeletons of dogs, examples of cultic figurines, distaffs and clay cones. The areas in which altars and skulls were concentrated made it possible to regard most of these as having functioned simultaneously in a shrine. Analysis of each specific archaeological find of altars and skulls made it possible to single out certain “archaeological situations” demonstrating clear differences in specific cultic practices, a key component of which was the sacrificing of human heads. The shrine was being used no earlier than the second or third quarter of the 4th century BC. Establishing the existence of cultic practices involving human sacrifice could provide a crucial step towards an understanding of phenomena, occurring in the forest-steppe zone in the second half and at the end of the 4th century BC, which eventually led to the complete disappearance of the culture of the Scythian period in the forest-steppe and steppe zones at the end of the 4th century BC.

      First page: 329
      Abstract: Source: Volume 23, Issue 2, pp 329 - 354The article proposes a division of the Pazyryk culture sites from the steppe valleys of the mountain Altai according to landscape-and-geographical principle − along the Katun-Chuya ridge into west and east habitats. A review of basic sites within the limits of the two habitats revealed differences in their number, location and burial inventory, confirming the existence of the two habitats.
