Golden Graves of Ancient Vani

Monday, April 14, 2008

Ancient Colchis is the land where Jason and the Argonauts went in search of the Golden Fleece, according to ancient Greek mythology. Beautiful gold and silver objects from graves in Vani (in the present-day Republic of Georgia) are now on display in a new exhibit, "Wine, Worship, and Sacrifice," at NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. Jennifer Chi is curator. Roger Bagnall is ISAW Director and former professor of classics and history at Columbia.
