cf. Reeder 1999 p151 <
"Along with the feline and the eagle, the stag was one of the most meaningful and frequently used motifs in Scythian art.  Jacobson links the deer or stag with, ultimately, a Siberian mother goddess, as well as with the reindeer, which the ancestors of the Scythians probably hunted."
