Great pictures, Cyrus, thank you.
Are the bracelets, amphoras, and bowls tribute articles? The birds on the bracelets remind me on the Scythian griffins

And Herodotus talks about Daruis invading the European Scythians, in his 4th book http://classics.mit.edu/Herodotus/history.4.iv.html

Yes, those are tributes but about the bracelet, that one seems to be Syrian, not Scythian, because those are Syrian tribute bearers.
