Wine, worship, and sacrifice : the golden graves of ancient Vani by D. D Kacharava( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Colchis, which was located on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, is best known from Greek mythology as the land where Jason and the Argonauts went in search of the Golden Fleece and Jason fell in love with Medea, who helped the hero complete his legendary feat. Archaeological finds prove that Colchis was indeed rich in gold. This illustrated catalogue explores what defined Colchian identity beyond its wealth by providing an overview of life at Vani, an important administrative and religious center in Colchis. It presents findings from five of Vani's richest graves, which include an impressive array of gold jewelry as well as imports from its western and eastern neighbors. These graves also give evidence of human sacrifice and of the important role that wine, drinking, and libation played in Colchian life. It provides a historical and archaeological overview of the city and explores such topics such as the rich tradition of Colchian gold working and the Greek view of Colchis through the myth of Medea
