Summary/Abstract: The burial ground Chervony Mayak is the only Late Scythian cemetery that is available for the regular excavations. In 2013 the only intact burial in excavation area was the grave no. 119. In the catacomb two elderly women were buried. Skeletons lied supine, directed to Northwest, on the brown dust (probably, the remains of felt). The grave goods (red-slip pottery, fibulae, beads, toiletry) permit to date the burial 119 to the first half of the 2nd century AD.
