The author critically examines the question of chronology of Heraclea’s stamps with the name of the late manufacturer Etymos, which since the mid 1990s has been traditionally dated by the late 4th — early 3rd centuries BC. The analysis of a series of complexes with stamps of this manufacturer found in the barrow at village Peski, pit no. 105 on Belozero settlement, from Nimphean cellar (found in 1993), from Gorgippian wells no. 10 and no. 269 and from the feast on Alexandropol barrow allows a rather reliable synchronization of this manufacturer within the 340s —330s BC, i. e. 35—40 years earlier. This raises the issue of the necessity to review the straightforward typological classification of the Heraclean stamps by presence of one or two names on stamps and to provide their new dating.

Keywords: Heraclea Pontica, 4th—3rd centuries BC, amphorae, stamps, chronology, complexes.
