Abstract

The article is devoted to the justification of the opinion on the construction in the second and third quarters of the 4th cent. BC. Mound 3, the topographic group of the royal mound IV, located on the town of Besh-Oba in the Piedmont Crimea.

The Besh Oba IV / 3 burial mound was a part of Besh Oba IV burial mound, which was built in the end of the second to the third quarter of the 4th cent. BC. Analysis of the funeral equipment from the floor of the burial chamber in the crypt of the mound 3, allows to synchronize the royal burial mound IV and the burial mound 3. It makes us face the fact that the inlet «collective» burials in the burial chamber of the burial mound crypt 3, belong to a later time than the crypt and date back mainly as 2nd cent. BC. This conclusion confirms the correctness of the dating of the Besh-Ob IV group of  burial mounds, which was previously suggested by S. G. Koltukhov, and S.V. Polin. Consequently, it receives an additional confirmation of the opinion that the entire aristocratic Scythian burial mound, located on the mountains of Ak-Kaya and Besh-Ob, can be related to the second and third quarters of the 4th cent. BC.
