Abstract

The only archaeological monument of the 1st Millennium BC in Southern Georgia (Samtskhe), which is systematically explored, is a multi-layer settlement and necropolis in Atskuri. The assemblages of the 6th-2nd centuries BC from Atskuri testify to the close relation with the Greek world on one side and with the Achaemenian cultural area on the other. Rich burials excavated in Atskuri in the last years contain numerous objects of Achaemenian type, which are mostly local imitations of Achaemenian objects. This material also shows that Achaemenian traditions continued to exist in Southern Georgia into the post-Achaemenian era.
