1.The black burnished Etiuni pottery before the Urartian arrival. Also known as Lchashen-Metsamor culture.
2.The red Urartian pottery, that appear in modern Armenia in 8th century bc. But remain unmixed till 7th century.
3. The syncretic "local Urartian pottery" also known as Lchashen-Metsamor VI period. This third syncretic type forms in 7th century bc. The remarkable thing is that it contains also Scythian arrowheads in burials. Which btw do not mean automatically Scythian person. This third type persist well into Armenian Satrapy (6th-5th century bc) period which is marked by the arrival of Achemenid Persian political and cultural influences.
