Abstract. The article deals with the specimens of Scythian Animal Style found in 2013 during supplementary excavation of the kurgan 1 of the necropolis Filippovka 1 (previously it was called the 1st Filippovka kurgan) in 2013. The specimens of the Scythian Animal Style analyzed were found in a new excavated burial 2. There were found golden plaques of wooden vessels with zoomorphic handles, silver mirror with gilded handle. There are images of animals on the golden plaques for a dress, some pendants and finger rings. The works of Art described show many stylistic parallels with the specimens of the Animal Style previously found in the mound. Comparing the items we have found some specific features of Scythian Animal Style of the 1st Filippovka kurgan. Among new finds we see also unique ones. In recent years the figures of deer embroidered on sleeves of the dress were found by V.E. Tregubov and K.S. Okorokov. We present the first publication of the research results by K.S. Okorokov reconstructed these figures of deer. These figures also find stylistic parallels with the works of Art of the 1st Filippovka kurgan. Some works of Achaemenid Art contain elements of Scythian Animal Style. The Style of these items also shows some characteristics specific for Scythian Animal Style of the kurgan 1 of the necropolis Filippovka 1. Basing on this we can suggest they were made by Achaemenid craftsmen by order from Filippovka nomads. Our work confirms the thesis of stylistic unity of the works of Art found in the 1st Filippovka kurgan.
Key words: Scythian Animal Style, 1st Filippovka kurgan, kurgan 1 of the necropolis Filippovka 1, reconstruction of a dress, specific features of Animal Style of the 1st Filippovka kurgan, Achaemenid craftsmen work for nomads.
