Tell site in Kurdistan, northwest Iran with a hoard of gold, silver, and ivory in a coffin of the 7th century BC. It illustrates the workmanship of the local Mannai, strongly influenced by Assyria, Urartu, and the Scythians. The collection is thought by some to have been the property of a Scythian chief who temporarily ruled Mannai. There was also a palace of Mannaeans upon a hilltop fortress.
