Summary/Abstract: In the publication are analyzed materials from the destroyed soil burial, which have been found out in 1979 under casual circumstances on the southeast outskirts of town Slobodzeja, in steep of the left coast of the river Dniester. Initial form and the sizes of a funeral complex were not established. In it were found three ceramic vessels (two urns and one basin), and also a bone fastener and an iron bracelet which were in one of urns. Besides in filling of two vessels are revealed calcinated bones.The burial was performed by cremation ceremony whereupon ashes together with inventory have been placed in ceramic urns. The funeral practice and inventory unequivocally point out a Thracian accessory of a complex and find analogies on the monuments of type Byrseshti-Feridzhile. Based on a bone fastener and black lustred basin of Feridzhile type burial is dated by border of VII-VI centuries BC.Appearance of the given complex on the left coast of the river Dniester is connected by the author of the publication with migration of the regular wave of the Thracian population from southern regions of Romania. Materials from multilayered settlement near village Chobruchi (bowls with a decor on an upper edge), located in immediate proximity from a burial and at a certain stage of the existence making with it a single whole also testify to it.
