Pages: 175-182

In the 12th century, Halych (today the remains of the fortified centre in the Krylos village) was the capital of a principality in SW Rus’. In 1938—1941, among other finds of high importance, an item was unearthed that is today identified as being of Scandinavian origin. The so-called strap distributor cast of bronze was produced in Gotland in 12th c. It was a fragment of a rich man's belt. Its owner in Halych undoubtedly belonged to the elite associated with the prince’s court.

Keywords: early mediaeval Rus’, Halych-Krylos in 12th c., strap distributor, Gotland
