The article examines study history of a rich male burial discovered by A. B. Ashik near Adzhimushkay quarries in Kerch in 1841. The burial was made in a stone crypt in the mound dated by the second half of 4th c. BC 800 years aſter, in the first third of the 4th c. AD, and refers to the time of Rheskuporis V. The body was marked by signs of supreme power — a tunic woven of gold threads and a golden diadem — and thus he is thought to be one of the highest dignitaries of the Bosporus Kingdom.
