The paper presents estimations for a quantitative content of alloy components in tools and weapons from the bronze hoard discovered at the fortified settlement of Dikiy Sad on the territory of Nikolaev sity (Ukraine). Three groups of alloys were identified — tin bronze, arsenic bronze, and a tin-lead-arsenic alloy. Some variations between metal composition of the hoard and those of the previously analyzed sample from Dikiy Sad were evidenced as well. It is suggested that the majority of products from the hoard are made of imported copper from the Carpathians or Transylvania, with high concentrations of arsenic, antimony, and lead. A certain part of the metals is alloyed with tin.
