Some artifacts found at the site are truly amazing. Good examples of that are the mint condition 5-6th century B.C. Olvian gold pendants and earring on these photos. I will post more details regarding the materials, dimensions, and suspected manufacturing techniques shortly.
If you have information or questions about these pieces of jewelry please leave a comment. These items are in a European private collection.
Pontic Olbia or Olvia is the site of a colony founded by the Milesians (an ancient Greek people) on the shores of the Southern Boog estuary (the Hypanis) in what is now Southern Ukraine. Olvia was eventually abandoned in the 4th century A.D., when it was burnt at least twice in the course of the so-called Gothic (or Scythian) wars.
Nowadays, Olvia is actively excavated by archeologists. Olvian artifacts can be found on display in museums all over the world.
