The author proposes an attribution of a bronze dagger hilt from the collection of Scythian time in the National Museum of Archaeology in Warsaw. Daggers with similar hilts are well-known from the later sites in Western Siberia dated about the second quarter of the 1 st millennium AD. This is consistent with the information of a probable location of the find published by Z. Podkowińska in 1933, but it was put much debated. Weapons of the first half of the I Millennium AD found on archaeological sites in Western Siberian forests have a strong resemblance to the weapons of the middle and late Sarmatian burials, but at the same time bear traits of distinctive decoration, which survived to the early Middle Ages.

Keywords: Western Siberia, Sarmatians, dagger hilt
