In 2009, a bronze matrix with image of Zeus was found in a burial of 1st-2nd centuries A. D. on the Ust-Alma necropolis (South-West Crimea). It was intended for production of votive plates. Analogous matrices were well-known in Chersonesos, Thrace and Moesia (2nd—3rd centuries A. D.). Such finds are usually associated with Roman soldiers. The matrix could have been brought to Crimea by Sarmatian tribes who participated in Roman-Dacian wars.


Keywords: Bronze matrix, votive plates, Ust-Alma necropolis, South–West Crimea
