The paper deals with a new perspective on specific features of religious life of the population of the Elizavetovskaya settlement on Don during two different periods of its existence: the first one lasted through the 4th century BC, and the second one is connected with the existence of the Great Greek Colony in the 300—270s BC. Some recent materials have never been published or analyzed before. Emphasis has been placed on the cults of Cybele as the Great Mother and Dionysus as the male deity. The research for the first time uses materials of an elite Pyatibratny kurgan group of the necropolis of the Elizavetovskaya settlement to study the religious life of the population of the Don River Delta.

Keywords: Elizavetovskaya settlement, Great Greek Colony, Greeks, Scythians, features of religious life, cults of fertility gods, chthonic, Cybele, Dionysus
