Scythian Crown. Between the 7th and 3rd centuries B.C., the Scythians moved back and forth across the territory of Ukraine as fierce warriors and nomads. Archeological sites have yielded real and mythical animal-style art in white and yellow metals. Strong Greek influences are found in artifacts discovered in the region of the Black Sea between the 7th and 2nd centuries B.C.
