    That wound seems oddly precise to have been received in battle. It looks almost like surgical work. The article says it was healed....what can we make of this?

    That it was healed? We can only conclude that the facial scar wasn't what killed him. I'm no scarring authority, but it doesn't look that precise to me. Maybe he got it one night drinking - said the wrong thing to the wrong Scythian who leaned over the table and cut his face?

    You are right, it looks pretty ragged and seems to go under his jaw which maybe you wouldn't expect from a slashing blow which would also probably have taken his ear off. I wonder how they dealt with bleeding and the risk of infection? They must have known what they were doing to some extent.
