NEW FIND OF A RELIEF WITH A DEPICTION OF HERACLES IN THE NORTH-WEST OF THE CRIMEA E.A. POPOVA and S.A. KOVALENKO In 1993 at the city-site of Chaika near Evpatoria a relief with a depiction of Heracles was found on the floor of Room No. 10 in a mansion dating from the end of the 4th or first third of the 3rd century BC. Apart from the relief, fragments of no particular interest from a Thasos terracotta were also found there as well as ceramic material widespread in sites of the 3rd-century BC. The relief measured 50 x 35 cm. It was made from local limestone. The figure was depicted in very high relief, the figure was also three-dimensional like a sculpture (Fig. 1 ). Heracles is depicted standing calmly: on his right shoulder he holds a club and there is a lion's skin over his left arm which is hanging down to the ground. The hero is standing with his weight supported by his right leg and his right hip is turned slightly to the right: this stance is underlined by the curve of the figure's torso as well. The left leg is bent at the knee
