The 4th century BC antler artefact has been recently reported from “The Sluiceway” (russ. “Vodovod”) group of barrows, a part of the cemetery of Glinoe near Slobodzeia on the left bank of the Dniester River. Here, the entire form of the hardly fragmented item from grave no.12 of barrow no.2 is reconstructed which contains ornamental border and a scene above it with a deer chased, assailed, or bitten by a gryphon. Further, observations and conclusions upon the object’s raw material structure and surface modifications are set forth. The comb’s convex side represents some cortical substance of a slab taken from the red deer antler beam, and its concave side consists almost overall of the cancellous substance. No traces were found over comb teeth and handle surfaces that could have been produced from long-term use.

Keywords: Lower Dniester Region, Glinoe, “The Sluiceway” barrows group, Early Iron Age, Scythians, antler industry, comb, traceology
