Eight silver coin hoards from the territory of present-day Serbia (the province of Upper Moesia, and parts of the provinces of Lower Pannonia and Dalmatia) include thirteen drachms from Asia Minor mints of Lycia, Amisus and Caesarea (Cappadocia). Eight drachms belong to the mint of Lycia, four were issued by the mint of Amisus and just one was coined in Caesarea.
The aim of the paper is to supplement the otherwise excellent article by Barbara Zając from 2015 on the drachm finds of these mints in European coin hoards. In addition, the analysis will deal with the incidence of certain issuers of coins by mint, and an attempt will be made to compare the reverse types of drachms of each mint (where the types are known) from individual reigns to determine the existence of specific patterns in their distribution within the European hoards.
