This phiale, on whose medallion the bust of a bearded male is represented, must have been made in one of the eastern provinces of the Roman Empire or in the Kingdom of Kartli (Iberia), which is located in what's modern Georgia. Goldsmithery was an especially advanced branch of aristanship in the Kingdom of Kartli. This item was excavated from the Armazikhevi archaeological, burial no. 6., and dates from c. 100-350 CE. (Georgian National Museum, Tbilisi)
