Based on written reports, epigraphic monuments and archaeological materials, the article considers three plots that are devoted to the service of foreign commanders in the Bosporus in the early Hellenistic period. The participation of the “leader of the mercenaries Meniskos” at the head of his military detachments in the war for power between the sons of Perisad I in 310/309 BC described by Diodorus Siculus is analyzed. Based on the evidence of epigraphy, the circumstances of the appearance of the Spartan “Bathyllus son of Derkius” in the military service in Panticapaeum are investigated. A new interpretation is proposed regarding the mercenary burial at Karantin Highway near Kerch, in the context of possible contacts between Magna Graecia and the Bosporan Kingdom in the second quarter of the 3rd c. BC.

Keywords: Northern Pontic, Cimmerian Bosporus, the end of 4th — middle of 3rd c. BC, Greek policy, burial complexes, foreign commanders, epigraphic inscriptions, military service
