Summary/Abstract: The author publishes and analyzes thin-walled vessels with a high content of mica from the complexes of Mangup-Kale (South-Western Crimea). They have a long history of development, originating from one-handed amphorae-jars that evolved into two-handed amphorae. The ware came from Asia Minor. Amphorae-jars are dated to the late first — fourth centuries AD. At the end of the fourth century, these vessels acquired the second handle and a new type of amphorae appeared, which was produced in two variants until the beginning of the seventh century AD. On the territory of Mangup plateau and its neighborhood, these vessels were first imported in the second half of the fourth century and were traded until the seventh century, via Chersonesus, as it seems.
