Beyond trade: the presence of Archaic and Classical Greek Bronze Vessels in Northern Black Sea area

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno

Abstract

Aim of the paper is to define the role of the metal vessels in defining the relation between Greek and Scythian world from the VI to the IV century BC. The finding of many pieces of metal vessels, mainly bronze, in different sites of the Caucasian area, more or less close to the Greek colonies around the Black Sea, can be examined as expression of the well-established commercial trade, probably related with exchange of grain or slaves; and the appreciation by local elites reflects their role as status symbol together with the acceptance of the forms and the ways of self-representation of the Greek aristocracy
