Description

In 2020, near Myrhorod (Poltava oblast, Ukraine), a hoard was accidentally found which included 12 Roman sestertii from the time of Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius, and Commodus, as well as ornaments made in the champlevé enamel technique (two bracelets, a brooch, and a chain), produced in the second half of 2nd - early 3rd centuries. This hoard should probably be associated with the population of the Kyiv archaeological culture. Most finds of Roman sestertii (single finds and hoards) on the territory of Eastern Europe forest-steppe and steppe zone with this culture are connected. The sestertii, which could have come from Central Europe or the Baltic region, could have been a metal source for the Kievan culture's jewelry.
