Extremely rare +++ Weight - 380 grams Length - 54,0 cm ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Sarmati (lat. Sarmatae) - the ancient people, consisting of nomadic Iranian-speaking tribes, from the IV century BC. e. through the first centuries n. e. inhabited the steppe belt of Eurasia from the Danube to the Aral Sea (the territory of modern Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan). According to researchers, Sarmatians, under the name “Savromats”, were first mentioned by Herodot (5th century BC), who reported: “If we cross the Tanais River (present-day Don), then there is no longer Scythian land, but the Savromats region”. According to N. Lysenko, since the creation of the world map of Mark Vipsania Agrippa (I century BC), the ethnonyms “Savromats” and “Sarmatians” were used as synonyms. Diodorus Sicilian reports on the relocation of the Scythians of Savromats from the Medes to the Tanais River. Pliny also reported that Sarmatians are related to the Medes. Herodotus reported that the Sarmatians descended from the Amazons, who were married to Scythian young men who had moved with their wives "east of Tanais, three days' journey in the direction of the north wind." However, speaking of the origin of the Scythians themselves, Herodotus reported that the “nomadic Scythians” living in Asia were ousted by the massagets and, “crossing the Araks River, left for the Cimmerian land,” while uncertainly counting the Massagets themselves among the same Scythians. Just Herodotus reported that the language of the "Savromat" Scythian, "but they speak it long since with errors." During the invasion of Persian king Darius I into Scythia, Sarmatians supported the Scythians and were part of the troops of the Scythian kings in the battle with Persia. Antique authors to the Sarmatians were: aorses, tongues, syraks, alans, roksolany, sai. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- PLEASE,CHECK MY OTHER ITEMS - I DO COMBINE SHIPPING ! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Shipping: After receiving payment I ship withing 3 business days!
