Annotation:  The article deals with publication of materials from the Roman times found on the left bank of the Lower Dniester region. In 2015–2016, the funds of the Museum of Archeology of the Dniester of the Transnistrian State University named after T.G. Shevchenko, replenished with artifacts of various cultural and chronological horizons, found in the village of. Tokmazeya of Grigoriopolsky district on the left bank of the Lower Dniester. Here, the materials of the Middle and Late Bronze Age, Scythian time, the late Roman period and the early Middle Ages were collected. At present, only the fibula of the mid-latent construction of the first quarter of 2-nd cent. BC is published from the above. Analysis of the Roman amphorae, as well as fibulae and buckle from the Tokmazeya-II and Tokmazeya-III points showed that they belong to two chronological horizons related to the Sarmatian and Chernyakhov periods. These findings most likely are connected with the Sarmatian soil cemetery and the Chernyakhov settlement located in the vicinity of Tokmazeya village.

Keywords:  Left bank of the Lower Dniester, Roman Amphorae, Fibulae, Sarmatian Culture, Chernyakhov culture.
