The city of Kherson, where the specialists came from, has been named the door to Europe. In ancient times there was the largest Greek policy – Olviya. This was the area which was also known as the Scythian Empire, here the Scythians settled down in the south of Ukraine and Russia. Scythians were nomadic herders of the steppes north of the Black Sea. The Scythians roamed and ruled much of what is now Ukraine and southern Russia, trading with Greeks, burying their dead in kurgans, and plundering villages. Starting from the 6th century the Scytians imported greek goods such as wine jars (Oinochen) to the Ukraine.
