The paper introduces a new assemblage of the Koban culture, which is a hoard found on Mount Strizhament (Stavropol region). Bronze items, including a bispiral pendant, an openwork bell-shaped pendant, a pendant shaped as a miniature vessel - were placed in a bronze vessel. Without any doubt, the hoard was amassed for cult purposes. The assemblage can be dated to the 10th - first half of the 8th centuries BC. It is one of the earliest (if not the earliest) Koban assemblages in the Stavropol Upland and should be regarded as a marker of movements of the Early Koban population groups to the north.
