Lot 2416
3rd-5th century AD. A Kiev culture bronze pendant comprising a triangular plaque with loop above and lobe to each lower angle surrounded by three pierced lugs; red enamel panel to each lobe and the triangle. 3.92 grams, 34mm (1 1/4"). From a private collection; previously in an old central Asian collection; acquired in the late 1940s. The Kiev archaeological culture was located in the basin of the rivers Dnieper and Visla between the 3rd and 5th centuries; archaeologists connect this culture with the historical ancestors of the Slavs. However, there are suggestions that in different regions of the Kiev culture the ethnogenetic processes were not the same. In some cases, the Slavic component prevailed, whilst Baltic and others were dominant elsewhere. [No Reserve]
