These days, in the halls of the National Museum of history of Ukraine, the Exhibition "Gold of Podillya: the history of peoples" is being held. Part of the exhibition were items that are stored in the local history Museum of Vinnytsia, but they have not yet been presented to the General public. In the center of attention were the artifacts that once lay at the burial site Animea, king of Olbia. The king was the leader of the nomadic Sarmatians, who imposed a protectorate on Olbia in the first century ad. The burial of the king was discovered in 1984 in one of the mounds on the territory of the Vinnytsia region.

The fact that these items belonged to the king is indicated by a personal mark applied to the items. His wife was also buried next to the ruler. Some items are Sarmatian, in particular, weapons: dagger, sword, bows. It was thanks to the bows that the Sarmatian tribes were able to conquer vast lands. Historians were able to identify ynismea by silver coins, which in the first century ad put the ego sign and name – they were minted for about 10 years. To Inislam coin in circulation was the money with a portrait of his father king Farta.

Historians believe that in the Vinnytsia region, near the village of Porogi, the Sarmatians built their own headquarters. Other burials were found here, in particular, the grave of the priestess. Items from this burial also went on display in the Museum. Amber jewelry found in one of the looted graves became interesting exhibits. According to the researchers, for some reason they did not interest the robbers, and now they have become part of the exhibition.
