Abstract :
A number of metal vases from Thrace are discussed, especially a lion plaque from Pistiros and several metal objects in Prague collections, together with other representations of lions in Thrace and Scythia. The evidence shows that in Thrace strong influence from Persian-Anatolian spheres had existed since the 6th century, besides the Greek impact, and that this ‘Oriental’ tinge persisted in Thracian art until the end of the Hellenistic period.
