Kampirtepa settlement was discovered by E.V.Rtveladze in 1972 during the archaeological reconnaissance in the valley of Amudarya. Based on the results of the first archaeological excavations on this territory E.V.Rtveladze conjectured about finding Greek settlement that once had a name Pandaheyon instead of Kampirtepa. Primarily, in III-II cc B.C. there was a fortress on the territory of Kampirtepa with a military garrison. It was formed in southern part of a settlement instead of future citadel. This unique archaeological monument is considered to be one of the thoroughly researched settlement of Kushan period II-IV cc A.D. of Northern Bactia and is of special interest for understanding the material and artistic culture of this region.
