In the 1st century AD in the North Pontic area were spread necklaces with braided chains at the ends and their central part composed of settings, usually oval in shape, with cabochon inlays of coloured stones or glass. Many of these necklaces are decorated with pendants in the shape of butterflies. Those whose provenance is known originate from rich Sarmatian burials, excavated in the barrows of the Olbian necropolis, in the ground cemetery of Chersonesos, and in the barrows of the North-Western Pontus area.
