"[T]he book gives a good overview of the modern state of research, presents material from recent excavations, some of which is published for the first time, but also supplies quality photographs of old finds. The plans of archaeological remains of various chronological periods allow the reader a clear picture of the contexts. This is a very useful book for all those interested in the archaeology of Colchis, its material culture and religious practice, but also for the scholars engaged in the study of Classical and Hellenistic metalwork."--Mikhail Treister, Ancient West & East
