This article is devoted to an analysis of materials from the excavations of the Kara-Oba burial-mound led by the director of the Kerch Museum, A. E. Lyutsenko, in 1859-1861 (Figs. 1-6). During those excavations and also the continuation of the investigation of the burial-mound in the 1960s (Fig. 7), data were obtained indicating that this site had been linked to both Greek and barbarian cultures, which made it possible to date it to the end of the 2nd century BC. However, despite the intensive research that has been carried out there for many years, the question as to the function of the site still remains unresolved.
