This chapter examines the evidence of Greco-Scythian art in practice by focusing on tombside feasts from burial mounds on the Bosporus. It suggests that those feasts provided one of the primary sites for the use and display of Greco-Scythian metalwork and defined elite power as a religious system independent of other forms of statehood on the Bosporus, especially the Greek polis. It also considers religion in ancient Bosporus in relation to the views expressed by Russian scholar Mikhail Ivanovich Rostovtzeff and his successors.

Keywords:   feasts, burial mounds, Greco-Scythian art, Bosporus, metalwork, elite, power, polis, religion, Mikhail Ivanovich Rostovtzeff
