Погребения варварских элит Северного Причерноморья на рубеже эр и их культурная идентичность

The reason for the preparation of this paper was the new information about dating of the Nogaychik Barrow. It includes artifacts, which are particularly characteristic for the Late Hellenistic period. All this suggests a date not later than the 1st century BC. However, it seems to be very hard for some scholars to accept this date. The likely reason for this is that this complex was once closely connected with the interpretation model of the Sarmatian archaeological culture which was developed in the 1980s and 1990s.

О начале функционирования восточного некрополя Фанагории (по материалам раскопок 2005–2007 гг.)

The article is dedicated to publishing of materials discovered during excavations of the Eastern necropolis of Phanagoria in 2005. They are represented by remnants of two dwellings, four household pits and agglomerations of domestic-type ceramics discovered in the eastern part of the excavation. The study of their ceramic complex showed that in the 5– 4th centuries BC the future necropolis had still housed residential and household structures of Phanagorian suburbs.


Der Artikel behandelt Geschichte der römischen Kolonie in Sinope, die 45 v. Chr. von Julius Caesar gegründet wurde. Die Einrichtung der Kolonie in der griechischen Polis evozierte deren Teilung in zwei Gemeinden: eine griechische und eine römische mit jeweils eigenen Machtinstitutionen. Dabei wurden Griechen aus der Zahl der cives und folglich deren der ordo decurionum ausgeschlossen (Strab. XII. 3, 11 (546)). Zur Anfangsphase der Kolonie gehört offensichtlich ein Amphorenstempel mit der Legende: O.L.I (oder P). S.S.P.

Заметки об амфорах с энглифическими клеймами

Amphorae with englyphic stamps have been known for more than 200 years. This class of products is characterized by several features that distinguish them from the mass production of amphorae in ancient Hellas, such as quality of the clay, technology used for marking, major differences in the quality of the finished products. Another important feature is the relatively short period of their production and use, spanning about one hundred years, and the dynamics of their appearance and disappearance.
