Summary/Abstract: The role of Aesthetics as a science is to examine any expression of aesthetic thinking, evaluate perception and interpretation of created artefacts and analyse options of aesthetic research of the rest of the society and objects commonly on the edge of the interest. Given paper turns the interest on the period of Slovak prehistory (Iron Age) when the development of Europe was dictated by the countries of antic Greece and later by antic Roma, specifically about the period when Thracians and Scythians broke into our space. The aim of the paper is an aesthetic interpretation of chosen objects of this period focusing on analysisof aesthetic norm and evaluation of the consequences of its application in practice and on the final form of the objects. It is also connected with aesthetic function, which is necessarily present in objects retaining on aesthetic norm and generally, it could be identified in any objects.
