The article continues an earlier published study of Byzantine coins found in the Middle Desna region, which were used as tokens of official status. The materials studied in the article come from Bryansk and Kaluga Oblast, the region which historically correlates with the north-western part of the Old Russian Chernigov Land. The authors address silver coins (srebrenik) and other pendants of different shapes and semantics (primarily of Scandinavian origin), including the “heraldic” ones of the tenth — twelfth centuries, which could be connected with the retinue stratum of the Russian society of that period.

Keywords: Chernigov land, Scandinavia, srebrenik, pendants, squad, status tokens
