Summary/Abstract: The article is written as an addition to the previous article by N. Fonyakova. It gives some different considerations on the motifs and symbolism of the subject depicted on the vessel from Kotski. It is necessary to state that these motifs and subjects are not pertinent only to the Khazar culture, but also occurred among the Early Hungarians (esp. the motif of decoration of the rim of the vessel) and among the cultures in Central Asia for a long time. The author’s idea is that it is not possible to give any prevalence of one or the other interpretation of the subject, being discussed either as a representation of a “Heroic combat with the Hero-virgin” or of a “Initiation Combat between the King and the Pretender”, though she is more inclined towards the first view. The basic conclusion is that this subject can be attracted towards the reconstruction of the (Proto)bulgarian mytho-poetic model.
