Abstract

The article deals with the planning of the stone vault in Karagodeuashkh mound, excavated by E. F. Felitzin in 1888 in Kuban’ area. The mound contained «rich» burials of the representatives of sindae-maeotian aristocracy and dated to 330—315 BC. The construction of Karagodeuashkh vault shows parallels to enfilade crypts which were wide spread during that time at the territory of ancient Thracia. The finds of metal objects in the inventory of the burial complexes testify to contacts with Thracia and Northern Greece. The materials of Karagodeuashkh mound seem to be important for the examining of cultural contacts of Bosporan kingdom and its Hellenized barbarian periphery in the last third of the 4th century BC. The analysis of the burial goods and construction of the mound is also of great importance for the study of the ideology of the local tribes of Kuban region.
