At all other Kurgans there is a small E. caballus (an almost complete skeleton at K6).

- From Rusalka (IV° BC) there is an E. caballus metacarpal.

- From Uspenka (IV°-III° BC) there is an E. caballus tibia.

- Golovkivka dates probably to the III° BC and yielded remains of an E. caballus.

- From Chertomlyk (III°-II° BC) there are also remains of E. caballus.

At Odessa, there is a cranium of an old E. caballus from Chkalogo (IV° BC).

In the Zoological Institute of St Petersburg are preserved several skulls of E. caballus from "Don kurgans". The age is not known.
