Bosporan agricultural settlement of the 2d c. B.C.-1st c. A.D. 18 km NE of Anapa.
Excavations since 1964 have uncovered a two-storied
rectangular (16 x 11 m) farmhouse or a fortified
tower. The main stone walls of the house were further
strengthened by an attached secondary wall. In one of
the two rooms in the house was a pottery kiln containing terracotta statuettes. Various agricultural tools
were scattered around both rooms. Near the house was a
Sindian cemetery of the 6th-4th c. in which most of the
graves were stone boxes surrounded by cromlechs.
