The paper presents the results of archaeological survey in 2018–2021, related to the study of antiquities of the 14th –15th centuries and the epoch of the Crimean Khanate nearby and on the territory of the classical antiquity settlement Artesian, that is located in the north-west of the Kerch Peninsula on the territory of the Chistopolye rural settlement of the Lenino district in the Republic of Crimea. The Saltovo-Mayaki horizons of this settlement were almost completely introduced into scientific use, while the Golden Horde and late medieval time materials were only mentioned in publications and are generalized for the first time. Analysis of ceramic material found during reconnaissance works is given. Special attention is paid to Christian cultic finds unique to the region, represented by a fragment of the ancient Russian engolpion and a large iron cross. Information about synchronous nearby sites of the northern part of the Kerch Peninsula is briefly analyzed and the historical situation is considered roughly.
