The author publishes and examines two bronze jugs from the Sarmatian burials of the Don basin. As the analysis showed, the jugs under discussion found in the burials most likely dated to the last third of the 1st century AD (Sokolovskii burial mound no. 3/1970) and even to the 2nd century AD (Chuguno-Krepinka, burial mound no. 2/1984), are items of extraordinary high artistic level of the first half, possibly the first third of the 1st century AD. In the first case, along with the jug, a no less high-quality bronze basin with a medallion was found, probably chronologically close to the jug, which could initially belong to the same set with it. In the second case, the jug clearly stands out against the background of a fairly standard set of imported bronze ware, typical to the late 1st — first half of the 2nd century AD, which is not surprising, since at the time of the burial it had been an antiquarian item for about 100 years.
