heal.abstract
The word ‘’Other’’ is a usual word for people in order to define their identity and to find their place in the world.2 From the antiquity until today the term ‘’otherness’’ most of the times has been used stereotypically and means not only the different but also the inferior.3 This human behaviour has affected scientists who try to find the reasons of this human attitude.4 This thesis is focused on the perception of the Scythians in the Greek historiography. My research has based on the ancient texts during 5th- 3rd centuries BC. Moreover, I have used many books and scientific papers which engaged with the role of the Scythians in the Greek historiography. The Greeks and the Scythians came closer when the Greeks settled the Black Sea area during the archaic period. As a result, the Greek colonization to the Black Sea area, especially for the north part, was a game of mixed cultures.5 In the case of the North Black sea area, Greeks of Olbia and Scythians had to establish connecting bonds each other.6 They had to develop diplomatic, security and trade relations.7 The problem which came up, was that the Scythians understood the Greeks of Olbia as Greeks, whereas the Greeks of mainland and especially the Athenians considered the Greeks of Olbia as people more connected to the Scythians.8 Therefore, the cultural interaction between the Scythians and the Greeks was unique and it was influenced by the certain area of the Black Sea. the contact between these two peoples was perplexing.9 As a result, the ancient Greek authors write for the different customs of the native people of the Black Sea area.10 Moreover, some authors named these indigenous people as barbarians, whereas archaeological findings testified that Black Sea area was not a place in which the barbarians and the Greeks met.11 The Black Sea region was an area which created a mixture of cultures.1
