Some of the following goods were found in grave 61:

1 – a wheel-thrown vase;
2 – a small hand-built bowl decorated with profiled conical knobs;
3 – a bowl (terra sigillata) with a smooth brick-red surface;
4 – a needle made of copper alloy;
5 – a pendant of a rectangular plaque, one side nickel-plated, decorated with two lines;
6 – a bracelet of silver sheet, with a representation of viper heads on terminals and diagonal crossed lines imitating leather;
7 – a set of miniature copper keys on a solid ring;
8 – a lunula-shaped copper pendant, with visible traces of enamel in pits;
9 – a pair of silver brooches;
10 – a pendant made of a Muricidae shell and a thick copper bar;
11 – a bracelet of a trapezium-shaped silver sheet, with the use of a tongue-shaped projection, fixed to a strap (remains survived underneath the sheet) onto which two rings of copper alloy and two glass beads were threaded;
12 – a small necklace of eight glass beads;
13 – a composite antler comb with bronze rivets;
14 – a necklace of 46 beads and pendants: 12 amber pendants, five glass beads and 29 multicoloured beads.

The grave was discovered at a biritual cemetery investigated since 1984. In a rectangular pit an outline of a large coffin hollowed in a log was revealed containing a poorly preserved skeleton of a child. The grave was richly furnished, including nine ceramic vessels, two necklaces of glass and amber beads, two bracelets, a comb, a needle and pendants made of metal, amber, glass and shells. The amulet made of the Black Sea Muricidae shell and the bracelet of beads and metal ornaments threaded onto a strap are typical of the Black Sea region. The lunula-shaped pendant is of the Balt origin while the terra sigillata bowl is a provincial Roman import from Asia Minor.
