Scythian burial in the Crimea was accurately dated thanks to a stamp on an amphora

Siberian archaeologists have found a tomb of Scythian warriors in the Crimea in the area of the highway 'Tavrida'; it contained a stamped amphora from a Greek colony. The stamp made it possible to date the burial accurate to just a few years, the press service of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography (IAET) of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences informed. Peter Shulga, the head of the excavation work and a senior researcher at the Institute, said that the finding helped to determine the age of the burial.

«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.
