Abstract

GLYPTICS OF MARGIANA (THE PRINCIPLES OF DESCRIPTION AND CLASSIFICATION) LS. KLOCHKOV The archaeological investigations undertaken within the last 25 years in North Afghanistan, South Uzbekistan and South-East Turkmenistan revealed a. ' previously unknown ethno-cultural complex standing behind what is known now under the conventional name of the Bactrian-Margiana archaeological complex or, in its abbreviated form, BMAC.' This is now used by many scholars. The outlines of the recently discovered culture, if not civilisation, are just beginning to be revealed. Even the area it once covered has not yet been defined with absolute certainty. As far as we know at present, the principal territories occupied by the creators of this culture were the lands of the ancient Murghab delta (the prin- cipal sites there were Gonur-1, Togolok-l, Togolok-21,2 Taip,3 Keleli-3 and 44) and in Bactria, along the Amudarya (Sapalli and Dzharkutans on its right bank, 1 The term was suggested by the discoverer of the archaeological culture, V.I.
