The article for the first time publishes and analyzes materials obtained during the study of the Scythian barrow 7 of the “Vodovod” group excavated in 2017 near village Glinoe, Slobodzeya district, on the left bank of the Lower Dniester. The mound contained five graves. Four burials were made in the pits and the fifth was in the catacomb. Graves in the pits were made at the turn of the thу 4th and the 3rd cc. BC, and burial in the catacomb was made in the first third of the 3rd c. BC. The graves belonged to ordinary community members, but they contained a rather impressive set of inventory. It is represented by weapons (arrowheads and an ax) and horse harness (bits and chick-piece), vessels (wooden dish, hand-made pot and a hand-made cup), tools (knives, awls, needles, spinning-whorls, abrasive tools) and adornments (rings, metal bracelet, beads, shell-pendants, oolitic limestone and dog tusks). In addition, finials, a bronze mirror and a fire flint were found. The bronze ring from the burial 7/2 testifies to the La-Tène and the hand-made cup from the burial 7/4 indicates the Thracian influence on the material culture of the Scythians of the North-Western Black Sea region. In general, the burial rite and inventory demonstrate the transformation of Scythian culture during the second half of the 4th — the first half of the 3rd c. BC.


Keywords: Lower Dniester region, end of the 4th — first third of the 3rd century BC, Scythian barrow, pits, catacomb, weapons, tools, adornments, vessels, bronze mirror
