The article publishes vault 197 excavated in 2002 with burials from the end of the 4th — the first half of the 5th century from the burial ground at Luchistoe. The design of crypt 197, the elements of the funerary rite recorded in it, the details of the costume and decorations are typical for the Alanian population of the Southwestern Crimea. A burial of a warrior with the tip of a spear or a dart was found in the crypt. The warriors buried at the burial ground near Luchistoe were armed with swords (short or long), or stabbing weapons. Judging by the accompanying grave goods, the warriors armed with swords belonged to the elite, while the spearmen were ordinary members of the community.

Keywords: Crimea, Great Migration Period, Alans, burial ground near the village Luchistoe
