Author(s): BOARDMAN, John
Journal: Ancient West & East

The author’s published study (The Relief Plaques of Eastern Eurasia and China) of Eastern belt plaques is here supplemented by selective comment on parallels from Central Asia, with consideration of the direction in which subjects and styles travelled, relationship to Sarmatian, Scythian (Saka) and related arts, the problems of the Western site of Filippovka and its relationship to the East, and finally an attempted assessment of a Yuehzhi/nomad style as seen in the East, then in Central Asia and at Tillya Tepe. There are also some important addenda to the publication.
