Archaeologists excavating the Middle Don burial ground of Devitsa V in the Ostrogozhsky District of the Voronezh region, Russia, have discovered a unique silver plate depicting winged Scythian gods and griffins. The site, which contains 19 burial mounds, was discovered in 2000 and has been the subject of excavations led by the Archaeological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences since 2010. Several other significant discoveries have been made over the last decade, including a barrow containing a female warrior. The silver plate discovered during the 2021 field season was found inside Mound 7, located in the central part of the cemetery. The main burial in this mound dates to the 4th century BC and belonged to a man in his forties. The tomb had been plundered by grave robbers in antiquity, but several rich grave goods survived thanks to the collapse of the roof during the robbery.
