The article is about a small cast object made of copper alloy in the form of a human mask, found in the territory of south-western Belarus, on the Cherevachitsy-2 settlement. Based on an analysis of the iconography, the authors believe that it can be attributed to the end of the La Tène or the beginning of Roman time and correlates with images known at that time on the border of Celtic and Roman civilizations by the population of several latènized archaeological cultures. A number of details indicate that this item was produced near the place of its detection. The find is considered in the context of relations between the population of the Zarubintsy-culture and the circle of related latènized cultures.

Keywords: Belarus, late La Tène period, early Roman time, circle of latènized cultures, repoussage, mask
