Abstract. The article analyzes a tombstone cross found by accident at Zmeiskaya catacomb burial ground of the X-XIII centuries (The Republic of North Ossetia-Alania) in 1994. The monument’s topography indicates propagation of Christianity in eastern regions of Alania in the pre-Mongolian period and syncretic beliefs of the natives. The authors discover the decor semantics and identify the closest analogies to the mentioned artifact. The unique finding is dated to the XI-XII centuries and is a source on history of Alania Orthodoxy in the Central Ciscaucasia.
