Abstract

NEW DATA ON DETAILS OF ROMAN MILITARY EQUIPMENT AND HORSE’S HARNESS FROM CHERSONESOS AND ITS ENVIRONS DENIS V. ZHURAVLEV Finds of Roman military equipment and horse’s harness are extremely rare in the North Pontic region. They constitute an important addition to already available evidence relating to the Roman presence in the region. The study of these objects from the North Pontic region only began relatively recently. 1 Apart from Olbia, Tyras and Chersonesos, where Roman military units were stationed at various times, parts of weapons or harness have also been found in Panticapaeum and in a shrine near the mountain pass known as the “Gurzuf Saddle” (Gurzufskoe sedlo). It is interesting to note that no similar objects have so far been found either in Balaclava or in Charax, where Roman troops were also stationed. 2 I do not yet have any explanations to offer for this. Meanwhile, parts of Roman military accoutrements and horse’s harness from various parts of the North Pontic region are stored in the collections of many museums in Russia and the Ukraine, objects about which specialists know nothing or, at best, very little.
