Two silver vessels – one found near Persepolis in Iran and the other from a grave at Gonur Depe in Turkmenistan – are discussed. Similarities in shape and decoration are highlighted, and a common place of origin is postulated. Three possible areas of origin are examined and the implications of a Central Asian origin are discussed in light of current debates about the historical geography of Iran in the late 3rd millennium B.C.
