Summary/Abstract: This paper publishes the adornments featuring the Pre-Hunnic polychrome style discovered by the excavations of the cemetery of Opushki in the Piedmont Crimea. Artefacts in this style occur in the Crimea, Lower Don, and north-western Black Sea area in the second half of the third and fourth centuries AD. There are spatial differences between these finds: the Crimean foothills know only adornments, while the rest of the area knows mostly horse harness and some weapons and, in a very few cases, earrings. The reasons behind these differences are still unanswered, even hypothetically, and the problem of the production place of these artefacts and their prototypes is still a subject of discussion. Introduction of new finds from Opushki cemetery for discussion is a significant extension of the available sources for analysis of this problem.
