Description

The paper deals with Late Roman gold coinage (hoards and isolated finds) dated between 275 and 498 AD found in the Barbaricum, in the region between the Tisa, Mureș, Danube rivers and the Timiș-Cerna corridor. This historic and geographic region, known as Banat, nowadays lies in south-western Romania and north-eastern Serbia. The region has yielded 110 of so Roman gold coins: 80 of so coins belong to three hoards: Borča, Denta and Starčevo, and 30 coins are isolated finds from 24 localities, especially from the Banat Plains. Based on archival information, the structure of a group of 23 coins from the Denta hoard (considered lost) is reconstructed here for the first time. The coins were part of the collection of Ormos Zsigmond and next of the National Museum of Banat collections in Timișoara (today two coins from this important discovery are preserved).
