The paper deals with description and analysis of artifacts obtained from the Scythian grave sunk into the Bronze Age barrow in “The Sluiceway” (russ. “Vodovod”) group near Glinoe village, Slobodzeia district, on the left bank of the Lower Dniester. A representative inventory set was found in the grave to include wooden cup with burnt pebbles inside, an iron battle knife, a quiver loop, a stone slab, one-sided antler comb, shale whetstone without traces of use, Ikos amphora, and a bronze fibula of the Thracian type. The last two objects mentioned make it possible to date the complex back to the late third — the fourth quarter of the 4th century BC. While the fibulae of this type were reported from the Scythian graves discovered on the left bank of the Lower Danube, this is just the second find of such fibula in the Dniester Region. It testifies that such costume accessories spread amongst the Lower Dniester Scythians by the end of the third quarter of the 4th century BC.

Keywords: Lower Dniester Region, 4th century BC, Scythian burial, wooden cup, stone slab, battle knife, whetstone, antler comb, Ikos amphora, fibula of the Thracian type
