Description

The find in Mladá Boleslav-Podlázky from 2011 contains a combination of denarii, weights and jewellery which is unique for Bohemia. At least 15 Bohemian denarii from the end of the reign of Duke Boleslav II (972–999) date the deposit to the year 999. The new coin evidence helped to refine the attribution of a previously anonymous type of denarius to Cacz, the new Vyšehrad Mintmaster. This is the first find in Bohemia to contain a larger number of weights, at least 10 different types. A set of brass-plated iron weights include 5 in the shape of a bipolar flattened spheroid and 1 polyhedral specimen. The other 4 weights are made of lead and have different shapes. The find also includes three pearls and a piece of raw crystal.
