Borodino (Bessarabian) Treasure


a Bronze Age treasure found in 1912 in the village of Borodino, near the city of Belgorod-Dnestrovskii in Odessa Oblast. The treasure dates from the beginning of the second half of the second millennium B.C. and is probably the treasure of a chief or military leader. It includes six stone battle-axes, two silver spearheads and one spear socket, a silver dagger and pin, and three alabaster mace heads. The objects have analogues among finds in the Danube Basin (in Czechoslovakia and Hungary). The spear forms are typical for Eastern Transcaucasia, and such forms are found in the Northern Caucasus as well as in the steppe and forest-steppe regions of Central Russia, which testifies to the broad links between tribes inhabiting the region of the finds. The treasure is kept in the State Historical Museum (Moscow).
