The Scythian languages are a group of Eastern Iranian languages of the classical and late antique period (the Middle Iranian period), spoken in a vast region of. Scythian, also called Scyth, Saka, and Sacae, member of a nomadic people, originally of Iranian stock, known from as early as the 9th century bce who migrated westward from Central Asia to southern Russia and Ukraine in the 8th and 7th centuries bce. The Scythians founded a rich, powerful empire centred on what is now Crimea. Scythian definition is - a member of an ancient nomadic people inhabiting Scythia. The Scythians – the Greeks' name for this initially nomadic people – inhabited Scythia from at least the 11th century BC to the 2nd century AD. In the seventh century BC, the Scythians controlled large swaths of territory throughout Eurasia, from the Black Sea across Siberia to the borders of China. a general name for the principal population that once inhabited the lands north of the Black Sea; the population consisted of related tribes of the North Iranian language group of the Indo-European family. The Scythians were related to the Sauromatians (Sarmatians), Massagetae, and Saka.

Auch in vielen byzantinischen Geschichtswerken, die in der klassizistischen Tradition standen, wurden fremde Völker an der Donau als Skythen bezeichnet.
Herodot berichtet, dass die Skythen von den Persern Saken genannt wurden. Altpersische Inschriften aus dem 6.
Zumindest die Haumawarga sind als Hauma bzw. Im engeren Sinn bezeichnet dieser Name Stämme der Saken , deren Siedlungsgebiete hauptsächlich in der Kasachensteppe lagen.
Die Skythen tauchen in den assyrischen Quellen erstmals unter Sargon II. Zur Zeit Assurhaddons — v. Kimmerer und Skythen werden in den assyrischen Quellen oft als umnan-manda zusammengefasst, was jedoch ebenfalls eine recht ungenaue Bezeichnung darstellt, die sich generell auf Bergvölker bezieht.
Ähnliche Bezeichnungen sind bereits von Akkadern in Zusammenhang mit älteren erwähnten Bergvölkern unbekannter Herkunft genannt worden. Der entsprechende Text dürfte nach v.
Die ursprünglich assyrische Form war A sch-ku-zaa oder I sch-ku-zaa , soll aufgrund von skythischen Gräbern dem griechischen Skythai entsprechen.
In der Völkertafel der Genesis Gen 10,3 taucht Aschkenas als Kind Gomers , des Sohn Japhets auf. Gomer wird mit den Kimmerern gleichgesetzt, wobei sich die Völkertafel weitestgehend auf das 1.
Ältere Vorstellungen entstammen wohl aus Babylonisch-assyrischen Bibliotheken während des Babylonischen Exils.
Die Skythen wurden von dem griechischen Historiker Herodot detailliert beschrieben. Danach gab es vier Hauptabteilungen der Skythen: die Aucheten, Nachkommen von Leipoxais, dem ältesten Sohn des Gründerheros Targitaos ; die Katairen und Traspier, Nachkommen des mittleren Sohnes Arpoxais; und die Paralaten oder königlichen Skythen, Nachkommen des jüngsten Sohnes Kolaxais Herodot 4,6.
Dieser Name taucht auch bei Alkman von Lesbos und Valerius Balba 70—96 v. Alle diese Abkömmlinge zusammen würden sich Skoloten nennen, die Griechen nannten sie Skythen.
Wenige Seiten weiter beschreibt Herodot eine weitere Aufteilung der Skythen nach der Wirtschaftsweise.
Ackerbau treibende Skythen wohnten danach im Lande Hyläa von griech. Sie nannten sich selbst Olbiopoliten Olbia Polis.
Östlich von ihnen siedeln die Sauromaten , nördlich davon die Melanchlänen , so benannt nach ihren schwarzen Mänteln, beides nach Herodot keine skythischen Stämme, obwohl die Melanchlänen skythische Sitten angenommen hatten 4, Herodot gibt zahlreiche Berichte über die Entstehung der Skythen wieder.
Als Beleg führt Herodot zahlreiche Ortsnamen im Skythenland an, die auf die Kimmerer hinweisen. Gesang, 5—6 Kimmerer, Skythen oder einen anderen Stamm der nördlichen Schwarzmeerküste bezeichnen sollen, ist umstritten.
Diese Stelle gilt manchen Forschern als die erste schriftliche Erwähnung der Skythen. Vermutlich sind damit pauschal geschickte Reitervölker gemeint.
Seine Brüder sind Agathyrsos vermutlich der sarmatische Stamm der Agathyrsen und Gelonos eventuell die Geten. Das Werk des Hellanikos von Lesbos über die Skythen ist nur in wenigen Fragmenten überliefert.
Auch Hippokrates von Kos , Aischylos gefesselter Prometheus , Sophokles , Euripides Iphigenie bei den Taurern , Rhesos , Pindar , Thukydides , Theopompos und Aristophanes überliefern einige Details über die Lebensweise und die Wohnsitze der Skythen und Sauromaten.
In den griechischen Quellen der klassischen Zeit werden die Skythen als typische Barbaren beschrieben, die gebrochenes Attisch sprachen und seltsame Beinkleider Hosen trugen.
The gold bowls depicted scenes showing clothing and weapons. By the time of Classical Scythian culture, the North Caucasus appears to no longer be under Scythian control.
Rich kurgans in the North Caucasus have been found at the Seven Brothers Hillfort , Elizavetovka and Ulyap , but although they contain elements of Scythian culture, these probably belonged to an unrelated local population.
Rich kurgans of the forest steppe zone from the 5th and 4th centuries BC have been discovered at places such as Ryzhanovka , but these are not as grand as the kurgans of the steppe further south.
Funerary sites with Scythian characteristics have also been discovered in several Greek cities. These include several unusually rich burials such as Kul-Oba near Panticapaeum in the Crimea and the necropolis of Nymphaion.
The sites probably represent Scythian aristocrats who had close ties, if not family ties, with the elite of Nymphaion and aristocrats, perhaps even royals, of the Bosporan Kingdom.
In total, more than 3, Scythian funerary sites from the 4th century BC have been discovered on the Pontic steppe. This number far exceeds the number of all funerary sites from previous centuries.
Apart from funerary sites, remains of Scythian cities from this period have been discovered. These include both continuations from the Early Scythian period and newly founded settlements.
The most important of these is the settlement of Kamenskoe on the Dniepr, which existed from the 5th century to the beginning of the 3rd century BC.
It was a fortified settlement occupying an area of 12 square km. The chief occupation of its inhabitants appears to have been metalworking, and the city was probably an important supplier of metalwork for the nomadic Scythians.
Part of the population was probably composed of agriculturalists. It is likely that Kamenskoe also served as a political center in Scythia.
A significant part of Kamenskoe was not built up, perhaps to set it aside for the Scythian king and his entourage during their seasonal visits to the city.
By the 4th century, it appears that some of the Scythians were adopting an agricultural way of life similar to the peoples of the forest steppes.
As a result, a number of fortified and non-fortified settlements spring up in the areas of the lower Dnieper. Part of the settled inhabitants of Olbia were also of Scythian origin.
Classical Scythian culture lasts until the late 4th century or early 3rd century BC. The last period in the Scythian archaeological culture is the Late Scythian culture, which existed in the Crimea and the Lower Dnieper from the 3rd century BC.
This area was at the time mostly settled by Scythians. Archaeologically the Late Scythian culture has little in common with its predecessors.
It represents a fusion of Scythian traditions with those of the Greek colonists and the Tauri , who inhabited the mountains of the Crimea.
The population of the Late Scythian culture was mainly settled, and were engaged in stockbreeding and agriculture.
They were also important traders, serving as intermediaries between the classical world and the barbarian world. It was a well-protected fortress constructed in accordance with Greek principles.
The most important site of the Late Crimean culture is Scythian Neaoplis, which was located in Crimea and served as the capital of the Late Scythian kingdom from the early 2nd century BC to the beginning of the 3rd century AD.
Scythian Neapolis was largely constructed in accordance with Greek principles. Its royal palace was destroyed by Diophantus , a general of the Pontic king Mithridates VI , at the end of the 2nd century BC, and was not rebuilt.
The city nevertheless continued to exist as a major urban center. It underwent significant change from the 1st century to the 2nd century AD, eventually being left with virtually no buildings except from its fortifications.
New funerary rites and material features also appear. It is probable that these changes represent the assimilation of the Scythians by the Sarmatians.
A certain continuity is, however, observable. From the end of the 2nd century to the middle of the 3rd century AD, Scythian Neapolis transforms into a non-fortified settlement containing only a few buildings.
They are often accompanied by a necropolis. Late Scythian sites are mostly found in areas around the foothills of the Crimean mountains and along the western coast of the Crimea.
Some of these settlements had earlier been Greek settlements, such as Kalos Limen and Kerkinitis. Many of these coastal settlements served as trading ports.
The largest Scythian settlements after Neapolis and Ak-Kaya-Vishennoe were Bulganak , Ust-Alma and Kermen-Kyr.
Like Neapolis and Ak-Kaya, these are characterized by a combination of Greek architectural principles and local ones.
A unique group of Late Scythian settlements were city-states located on the banks of the Lower Dnieper.
The material culture of these settlements was even more Hellenized than those on the Crimea, and they were probably closely connected to Olbia, if not dependent it.
Burials of the Late Scythian culture can be divided into two kurgans and necropolises, with necropolises becoming more and more common as time progresses.
The largest such necropolis has been found at Ust-Alma. Because of close similarities between the material culture of the Late Scythians and that of neighbouring Greek cities, many scholars have suggested that Late Scythian cites, particularly those of the Lower Dnieper, were populated at last partly by Greeks.
The Late Scythian culture ends in the 3rd century AD. Since the Scythians did not have a written language, their non-material culture can only be pieced together through writings by non-Scythian authors, parallels found among other Iranian peoples, and archaeological evidence.
Scythians lived in confederated tribes, a political form of voluntary association which regulated pastures and organised a common defence against encroaching neighbours for the pastoral tribes of mostly equestrian herdsmen.
While the productivity of domesticated animal-breeding greatly exceeded that of the settled agricultural societies, the pastoral economy also needed supplemental agricultural produce, and stable nomadic confederations developed either symbiotic or forced alliances with sedentary peoples—in exchange for animal produce and military protection.
Herodotus relates that three main tribes of the Scythians descended from three sons of Targitaus: Lipoxais, Arpoxais, and Colaxais.
They called themselves Scoloti, after one of their kings. The first scholar to compare the three strata of Scythian society to the Indian castes was Arthur Christensen.
The Scythians were a warlike people. When engaged at war, almost the entire adult population, including a large number of women, participated in battle.
Scythians were particularly known for their equestrian skills, and their early use of composite bows shot from horseback. With great mobility, the Scythians could absorb the attacks of more cumbersome footsoldiers and cavalry, just retreating into the steppes.
Such tactics wore down their enemies, making them easier to defeat. The Scythians were notoriously aggressive warriors. Ruled by small numbers of closely allied elites, Scythians had a reputation for their archers , and many gained employment as mercenaries.
Scythian elites had kurgan tombs: high barrows heaped over chamber-tombs of larch wood, a deciduous conifer that may have had special significance as a tree of life-renewal, for it stands bare in winter.
The Ziwiye hoard , a treasure of gold and silver metalwork and ivory found near the town of Sakiz south of Lake Urmia and dated to between and BC, includes objects with Scythian " animal style " features.
One silver dish from this find bears some inscriptions, as yet undeciphered and so possibly representing a form of Scythian writing. Scythians also had a reputation for the use of barbed and poisoned arrows of several types, for a nomadic life centred on horses—"fed from horse-blood" according to Herodotus—and for skill in guerrilla warfare.
Some Scythian-Sarmatian cultures may have given rise to Greek stories of Amazons. Graves of armed females have been found in southern Ukraine and Russia.
Though a predominantly nomadic people for much of their history, the Scythians were skilled metalworkers. Knowledge of bronze working was present when the Scythian people formed, by the 8th century BC Scythian mercenaries fighting in the Near East had begun to spread knowledge of iron working to their homeland.
Archeological sites attributed to the Scythians have been found to contain the remnants of workshops, slag piles, and discarded tools, all of which imply some Scythian settlements were the site of organized industry.
According to Herodotus, Scythian costume consisted of padded and quilted leather trousers tucked into boots, and open tunics.
They rode without stirrups or saddles, using only saddle-cloths. Herodotus reports that Scythians used cannabis , both to weave their clothing and to cleanse themselves in its smoke Hist.
Men seemed to have worn a variety of soft headgear—either conical like the one described by Herodotus, or rounder, more like a Phrygian cap.
Costume has been regarded as one of the main identifying criteria for Scythians. Women wore a variety of different headdresses, some conical in shape others more like flattened cylinders, also adorned with metal golden plaques.
Scythian women wore long, loose robes, ornamented with metal plaques gold. Women wore shawls, often richly decorated with metal golden plaques.
Based on numerous archeological findings in Ukraine, southern Russia, and Kazakhstan, men and warrior women wore long sleeve tunics that were always belted, often with richly ornamented belts.
Materials used depended on the wealth, climate and necessity. Men and women warriors wore variations of long and shorter boots, wool-leather-felt gaiter-boots and moccasin-like shoes.
They were either of a laced or simple slip on type. Women wore also soft shoes with metal gold plaques. Men and women wore belts. Warrior belts were made of leather, often with gold or other metal adornments and had many attached leather thongs for fastening of the owner's gorytos, sword, whet stone, whip etc.
Belts were fastened with metal or horn belt-hooks , leather thongs and metal often golden or horn belt-plates.
Scythian religion was a type of Pre-Zoroastrian Iranian religion and differed from the post- Zoroastrian Iranian thoughts.
The use of cannabis to induce trance and divination by soothsayers was a characteristic of the Scythian belief system. Our most important literary source on Scythian religion is Herodotus.
According to him the leading deity in the Scythian pantheon was Tabiti , whom he compared to the Greek god Hestia.
The Scythians are also said by Herodotus to have worshipped equivalents of Heracles and Ares , but he does not mention their Scythian names.
Most of the names of Scythian deities can be traced back to Iranian roots. Herodotus states that Thagimasadas was worshipped by the Royal Scythians only, while the remaining deities were worshipped by all.
He also states that "Ares", the god of war, was the only god to whom the Scythians dedicated statues, altars or temples. The proximity of the Greek city-states on the Black Sea coast Pontic Olbia , Cimmerian Bosporus , Chersonesos , Sindica , Tanais was a powerful incentive for slavery in the Scythian society, but only in one direction: the sale of slaves to Greeks, instead of use in their economy.
Accordingly, the trade became a stimulus for capture of slaves as war spoils in numerous wars. Isocrates  believed that Scythians, and also Thracians and Persians , were " the most able to power, and are the peoples with the greatest might ".
The later sources do not mention three basileuses any more. Strabo tells  that Ateas ruled over the majority of the North Pontic barbarians.
During western expansion, Ateas fought the Triballi. During the year life of Ateas c. At the same time, both the nomadic and agricultural Scythian populations increased along the Dniester river.
A war with the Bosporian Kingdom increased Scythian pressure on the Greek cities along the North Pontic littoral.
Materials from the site near Kamianka-Dniprovska , purportedly the capital of Ateas' state, show that metallurgists were free members of the society, even if burdened with imposed obligations.
Metallurgy was the most advanced and the only distinct craft speciality among the Scythians. The war with Philip II of Macedon ended in a victory for Philip the father of Alexander the Great.
The Scythian king Ateas fell in battle well into his nineties. When in BC Zopyrion , Alexander's viceroy in Thrace, "not wishing to sit idle", invaded Scythia and besieged Pontic Olbia , he suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Scythians and lost his life.
With their increased forces, the Sarmatians devastated significant parts of Scythia and, "annihilating the defeated, transformed a larger part of the country into a desert".
The dependent forest-steppe tribes, subjected to exaction burdens, freed themselves at the first opportunity.

The Scythians are connected with a variety of customs that interest modern people, including the use of hallucinogenic drugs, fabulous gold treasures, and cannibalism [ see Cannibalism in ancient myth ].
They have been popular as the noble savage from the 4th century B. Scythian horse gear saddles, bridles, bits etc was also highly developed and functional, durable and light.
We know this because the large burial mounds contain large numbers of sacrificed horses. These were accompanied by halters, bridles and saddles, and occasionally whips, pouches and shields.
The saddle horses were buried with very elaborate costumes including headgear with griffins or antlers, saddle covers decorated with combat scenes, and long dangling pendants.
Horse headgear. Scythian horses were well looked after — many were aged between 15 and 20 years when they were put to the grave. Almost all the buried horses were killed in the same manner — a hard blow of a pointed battle-axe to the mid-forehead.
Gold plaques showing Scythians drinking. Like many cultures, the Scythians drank to excess and got high. Feasting was an important part of Scythian funeral ceremonies — it was also important for social bonding between individuals and tribes.
They soon acquired a reputation for excessive drinking of undiluted wine the Greeks used to mix their wine with water. Greek authors then commented on how the Scythians, like the Persians, liked to drink to excess.
The Scythians howl in their joy at the vapour-bath. This serves them instead of bathing, for they never wash their bodies with water.
The Scythians realised the pain relieving effects of marijuana, which no doubt came in useful if they had been in a riding accident or a fierce battle.Important Early Scythian sites have also been discovered in the areas separating the North Caucasus and the forest steppes.
