Abstract

THREE SILVER BOWLS FROM THE ISAKOVKA BURIAL-GROUND NO. 1 WITH KHWAREZMIAN AND PARTHIAN INSCRIPTIONS * VLADIMIR A. LIVSHITS In 1989 the archaeological expedition organized by Omsk State University was carrying out excavations at the Isakovka Burial-ground No. 1 situated near the city of Omsk. The excavations were directed by L.I. Pogodin, member of the university’s Pre-History Department. The results of these investigations have, as far as I know, still not been published. Professor V.I. Matyushchenko sent me information about the Ž nds from these excavations in November 1989. V.Yu. Zuyev from the staff of the State Hermitage Museum, after acquainting in Omsk with the materials from the burial-ground in 2001, presented me with additional data on the objects concerned. During the excavations of Burial No. 6 (Burial-mound 3) L.I. Pogodin found three silver bowls with inscriptions. To judge from Matyushchenko’s letter some gold belt plaques with scenes of a struggle between a snake and camels, iron scale armour, a forged iron spear, the remains of a bow and quiver and a number of other objects were found in Burial 6. In the opinion of Matyushchenko, the burial can be dated to the 3 rd -2 nd centuries BC
