On the Bandkeramik (LBK) settlement of Rovancì in Volhynia two round valves of Spondylus gaederopus were discovered during a rescue excavation carried out in 2009. In the upper part of each of the artefacts two artificial holes with traces of suspension (grooves) can be observed. The two medallions were unearthed in the left longpit of an LBK longhouse. The find might be interpreted as depot or cenotaph. It substantially increases the extent of the Early Neolithic Spondylus long-distance exchange network. Furthermore, items made of Spondylus were apparently one of the commodities demonstrating status in Bandkeramik societies.
