НОВООТКРЫТЫЕ ГРЕЧЕСКИЕ ХРИСТИАНСКИЕ НАДПИСИ ИЗ СЕВЕРНОГО ПРИЧЕРНОМОРЬЯ И ВОПРОС О СТАТУСЕ ПЕЩЕРНЫХ ОБИТЕЛЕЙ В ГОРНОМ КРЫМУ

С. 331-356.

The paper publishes Greek Christian inscriptions from the
Crimea either re-found or newly discovered mostly in 2015–2016, which are
missing in the IOSPE3 V. These finds allowed us to get photographs of IOSPE3
V 165, 307 and to correct the reading of IOSPE3 V 126, 222, and 246. The new
finds comprise slabs from Bermana Ravine in vicinity of Sevastopol (add. 1,
2), a commemorative inscription from 1365/6 AD from a small church above
Verkhorech’e (Biia-Sala) (add. 3), graffiti from a roadside altarless church near
Il’ka Mountain in vicinity of Mangup (add. 5) and Eski-Kermen (add. 6),
tombstones from Staryi Krym (Solkhat) from 1361/2 (add. 7), Tyritake from
ca. 900 (add. 8), Kerch from the sixth (add. 10) and eleventh (add. 9) centuries,
and Bogatyr’ from 1509, and also building inscription from a cave church at
Zagaitanskaia Cliff in Inkerman from 1303 (add. 4). The latter mentions that
the church was dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra in Lycia and the name of
John Skleros, a previously unknown Metropolitan Bishop of Cherson, and also
the kellion of monk Helias, which revives the question of the status of minor
cave monasteries in the Mountainous Crimea.
