Description: Nearly extremely fine Scythian gold gorytos plaque of die-formed sheet gold in the form of a dog running left. The back has several small rings for attachment. Such items were originally attached to a gorytos (bow case and quiver). Scythians used gold appliques and plaques such as this one to decorate clothing. Dogs, deers and lions were often depicted in this position on Scythian appliques. 


Period: 6th-5th century BC


Condition: Very fine, one fore leg slightly damaged. The item is mounted on a custom-made perspex stand.
