TWO BRONZE NORTH-CAUCASIAN HELMETS FROM THE STATE HISTORICAL MUSEUM (MOSCOW) A.I. IVANTCHIK and A. MOSHINSKI ¯ I Pointed helmets made of sheet bronze and found in the Caucasus are fairly well known and have been published on several occasions despite the rare nature of such Ž nds. Recently they have been attracting more attention among scholars than usual in the context of the discussion of the Cimmerian question. These helmets have been interpreted as being of Assyrian or Urartian origin and they are regarded as evidence of the participation by the population of the Northern Caucasus in Cimmerian campaigns into Asia Minor. In addition it has recently become possible to use these helmets as evidence for the dating of pre-Scythian culture of the Novocherkassk Hoard type. In fact, during excavations of the Klin-Yar Burial-ground near Kislovodsk at the end of the 1980s two helmets of this type were found together with objects of typical Novocherkassk appearance (articles of horse’s harness and weapons: Burial 186, 1988 excavations and a destroyed burial excavated in 1987). 1 These Ž nds enable us to demonstrate at least to some extent that the culture of the Novocherkassk Hoard coincides in time with the
