Abstract

An account is offered of the discovery of the Oxus treasure in 1877 and the recovery in 1993 of part of it, now conserved in the Mihon Museum in Japan. Descriptions and analyses are given of 17 sculptures and 48 ritual vessels in the Mihon Museum collection. Comparison of these items with those of the British Museum Treasure point to their provenance as votive objects held in the treasury of a Zoroastrian temple of the Achaemenid period and confirm the identity of finds from the treasure with finds from the now excavated shrine of the Oxus.
