The Golden Graves of Ancient Vani

Some amazing ancient pieces from city of Vani, located in Western Georgia. I had a pleasure to see entire exhibit in NYC organized by New York University Institute of the Study of Ancient World back in 2008. Findings are 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. All Dated btw 5th and 1st Century B.C.
