Scythian Golden Fish from the Treasure of Vettersfelde circa 500 B.C.
|The Vettersfelde Treasure was found by chance in what was then Vettersfelde in the Province of Brandenburg (modern Witaszkowo, near Gubin, Poland) in 1882.|
The objects in the trove are connected to the Scythians. The origin of the trove remains mysterious.
Golden plaque intended to cover the upper part of a sheath for a type of dagger.
|The presence of these golden objects so far into northern Europe was explained by a Scythian expedition into central Europe, with the trove forming the grave-offerings of a Scythian prince, who had made it as far as Brandenburg.|
