Ancient Bronze Bell cast in Bactrian area around 2000 - 1700 BC.

The bell was found in the Bactria–Margiana Archaeological Complex (also known as the "Oxus civilization"), the modern archaeological designation for a Bronze Age culture of Central Asia, dated to c. 2200–1700 BC, located in present-day eastern Turkmenistan, northern Afghanistan, southern Uzbekistan and western Tajikistan, centred on the upper Amu Darya (Oxus River), an area covering ancient Bactria.
