Abstract

A RURAL TEMENOS IN THE EASTERN CRIMEA A.A. MASLENNIKOV The chora of Classical city-states, when examined from the geographical and archaeological point of view, can be seen to incorporate various types of monuments and landscapes. This applies in full measure to the rural territory within the Bosporus as well. In recent decades it has proved possible in the Eastern Crimea not merely to identify dozens of settlements and large villages, but also to Ž nd the traces of ancient roads, landed holdings, man-made terraces and so on. Of particular importance in this connection are those Ž nds, which testify to the existence of rural shrines. One such site was excavated by the Eastern Crimean Expedition of the Institute of Archaeology afŽ liated to the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1991-1992. It is situated 23 kilometres to the North-west of Kerch on the relatively  at and fairly extensive summit of a large rocky hill, which is part of a ridge of hills stretching along the sea coast to the West of Lake Chokrak. The slope of the hill on the eastern side is quite gentle, but the other sides are steep. The traces of two buildings in a
