The author presents fourteen coin hoards, divided into four groups. The hoards from the villages of Arnautito, Gita, Byalizvor, Byalo pole belong to the second group, dated to 315-317 AD. The hoard from Rakitnitza village containing coins minted until 324-326 AD, belongs to the third group. Two types of coin hoards are placed in the fourth group. The first subgroup includes the hoard from the village of Karanovo, and two other hoards from Enina buried around 361 AD. The second subgroup includes coins recovered in the region of Shipka-Sheynovo, and the necropolis of Avgusta Traiana, where all were used as Charon’s obols. Coin hoards in the second and third group are mostly composed of folles. The fourth group predominantly contains bronze coins AE 4 and siliquae. The time and place of deposition of the coin hoards reflect the political and economic events in this region of the Roman province Thrace.
