Bronze dolphins of Olbia (original, 5-6 centuries BC)
Dolphins of Olbia are one of the most curious and original artifacts of the Kinburn Spit and the Northern Black Sea region.
The tradition of the circulation of small bronze dolphins in the form of a bargaining chip in the second half of the 6th century BC. was developed in the main centers of the North-Western Black Sea region. Since that time, the history of the Olbia policy’s own monetary circulation begins.
Dolphin-shaped coin ingots are often found in the form of single and group finds in Olbia, on the Kinburn spit, on the nearby island of Berezan, in many settlements at the turn of the 6th-5th centuries BC, in the Lower Bug region.
In honor of Apollo Delphinius, from the second half of the 6th century BC, Olbia began to issue a coin that looks very much like a dolphin.
The cheerfulness of dolphins, their playful disposition, curiosity, the ability under certain circumstances to show interest in music, to rescue shipwrecked sailors, engendered in the souls of the ancient Olvian Hellenes respect for dolphins and even worship of them.
Nowadays, the sight of dolphins in their natural habitat is of great interest to tourists visiting the Kinburn Spit.
The original bronze dolphins of Olbia, found by modern seekers of antiquities, will become the best memories of a vacation in the “Alderwood estate”.

Denarius of Ancient Rome
(original, silver, 1-3 centuries A.D.)
Denarius (Latin denarius “consisting of ten”) is the name of a silver coin of Ancient Rome of the times of the Republic (first minted in 268 BC) and the first two centuries of the Empire. One of the most common coins in areas under the influence of Rome. The northern Black Sea region, which includes the Kinburn Spit, Olbia and the surrounding lands, was one such region. Roman influence in the Northern Black Sea region has been noticeable since the era of the emperor Tiberius. And during Septimius Severus (196-198 AD) Olbia stopped minting her own coin altogether and used denarii with images of the emperor or members of the imperial house. Denarius made up the annual poll tax of Rome, about which there is a parable in the Gospel of Matthew (22: 15-22): “Show me the coin that pays to give. They brought [Jesus] a denarius. And he said to them: Whose is this image and inscription? They say to him: Caesar’s. Then he says to them: therefore give what is Caesar’s to Caesar, but what is God’s to God. ” The Black Sea, the keeper of secrets, occasionally shares its denarius with the modern antiquities seekers of Kinburn. The original silver coin, which is almost 2000 years old, will be the best memory of a vacation on the Kinburn Spit.
