The article treats the early period of silver minting in the Ancient Greek Panticapaeum before a combination of letters signifying the town’s name first appeared on coins. First issues of these silver coins are dated by the middle – second half of the 6th c. B.C. The Panticapaeum coinage is supposed to have appeared as a means to pay for grain brought from the Asian part of Bosporus (the Taman peninsula). In its turn, this enables us to raise the question of a possible union of Panticapaeum and polises on the Taman peninsula in as early as the middle 6th c. B.C.
