Erotica dates back to the Stone Age. Here is a carving of a fertility goddess

I don't see as erotic art, but as a religious one - a statuette of a Mother Goddess, or a fertility goddess is a religious object, not an erotic one. For sure it didn't carry erotic meaning for the people who consider this a representation of a goddess, not more than a icon of Virgin Mary has an erotic meaning for a say, Catholic. Now for us being disconnected from the ancient way of thinking that produced it it may seem erotic because it represents a naked woman, but this would be taking it out of the context that provided for it's creation.

How do we discern ancient sacred? I ask because I think it maybe possible that many things called ancient erotic could be sacred rather than erotic, and it is a modern eye with a modern perspective on modern sexuality which could be clouding people's judgements. 
What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

Yes marjorie100 , everything you posted is correct! Except maybe the dating's? Thus, I and most everyone in the Fomenko community considers this stuff belongs in the Middle Ages!
