A reproduction of a 4th-century BC gold brooch featuring a lovely winged goddess wearing a Greek headdress. The image most likely originates from the local pantheon of gods. The original was found during excavations of the Bolshaya Bliznitsa burial mound on the Taman Peninsula (now the Ukraine), where the Greek colonies of the Bosporan Kingdom were situated. Plaques such as these were used by the nobility to ornament their clothes.
