The Sokh snakes are two snakes made in stone that were discovered in Sokh, Ferghana valley, Uzbekistan in 1899. It is dated to the 3rd-2nd millennium BCE, and displays stylistic similarities with the contemporary cultures of Mesopotamia, leading archaeologist Philip Kohl to suggest that it was actually imported from Elam, where similar objects can be found.
