«This year we discovered a copper stater minted in the Bosporan kingdom, it shows the year of coinage — 639th year of the Bosporan era, that is 342/343 AD (the year in the kingdom began in the autumn — TASS). It points to the end of coinage in the Bosporus, and hence, the terms of the reign of the king Rhescuporis VI (Tiberius Julius Rhescuporis VI, the last ruler of the Bosporan Kingdom — Chrdk) — no coins have been minted in the kingdom after his rule had ended,» the scientist said.

A portrait of the Rhescuporis VI and a profile of a Roman emperor are depicted on the copper coin (only this kind of money was minted in the last years of the Bosporan kingdom).
