Scythian burial in the Crimea was accurately dated thanks to a stamp on an amphora
«In the crypt of the Sary-Su-1 mound in the area of the construction of the future 'Tavrida' highway, the archaeologists have discovered a grave of a warrior, and at his feet stood a Herakleian amphora with a stamp. The bones of another dead [human male] were neatly and compactly folded in the corner of the crypt. It might be that the latter used to be in the centre, so the compatriots decided to move him aside in order to bury the warrior. Using the stamp on the amphora, the experts determined the exact date of its manufacture — 340−336 BC,» the statement said.
