ON A SCYTHIAN RECORD INSCRIBED ON A BLACK-LACQUEDER KANTHARE

by Sergei V. Rjabchikov

A black-lacquered kanthare discovered in a barrow mound near the village Krasny Podol (the Kherson Territory, Ukraine) contains a graffito, IAM (Polin 1984: 113, figure 14, 1). I suppose that it is a Scythian inscription. This word is comparable with the name of the Indo-Arian god (king of the dead) Yama. Y.A. Shilov (1995: 508) compares the Indo-Arian god Yama with the ideas "hole; grave"; see also my interpretation of a Scythian plot that describes in particular the god Yama in the form of the hole as well as the god Targitai.
