Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to the "Scythian issue" in the context of Silver age culture as the new image-thematic sphere in Russian art, which romantically poeticized historic events through the prism of archaic. Appeals of local artists of the beginning of the 20th century (poets, painters, composers) are tracked back to ancient sources, which presented the opportunity to comprehend spiritual values and renewal of artistic system.
