Summary/Abstract: The article presents the materials of the five Maeotian burials with fibulae of different types from the burial ground, located on the Right Bank of the Kuban River. The earliest is the middle-La Tène fibula of the “Neapolis” variant from the burial, dated by the second half of the 2nd century BC. Perhaps, fibulae of this type demonstrate connections between the Maeotians and with Late Scythian population of the Crimea. Analysis of the Early Roman fibulae of ”Aucissa” type suggests a trade route from Asia Minor in the Kuban region through the Caucasus. The chronology of the fibulae and funerary equipment shows that the population of the settlement Spornoye used brooches as an element of clothing from the second half of the 2nd century BC to the middle of the 3rd century AD.
