The Oguz Kurgan is located near the Lower Sirogozy Nyzhni district of Kherson region, Ukraine. The Kurgan is the burial site of a Scythian king from the fourth century BCE.

Being the largest kurgan on the Black Sea steppe, it was located near an important ancient crossroads of the left bank. The construction of the site is dated to 330-310 BCE.

At different times it was studied by archaeologists Mykola Veselovsky, Vadym Roth, Oleksandr Leskov and Yuri Boltryk. According to Boltrick’s research, it is very likely that Oguz is the tomb of a descendant of the Scythian king Atheus. The findings obtained during the investigation adorn the Scythian collections of the Russian Hermitage and the National Jewelry Museum of Ukraine.
