Aspects de la diffusion des monnaies d’argent istriennes au nord du Danube à la lumière du trésor découvert à Ivancea

Abstract: The authors publish a coin hoard discovered under unknown circumstances at Ivancea, the Republic of Moldova. The hoard consisted of nine Greek silver coins minted by Istros, all damaged by a powerful fire and out of which only seven were recovered. All Istrian silver coins are included in the fourth group of issues. Recently, both a new classification comprising eight subgroups and a new chronology have been proposed for the fourth group of issues. Based on the coin hoards discovered at the Lower Danube, the authors discuss the chronology of the Istrian silver coins. The analysis of the Istrian drachms discovered in Getae territory indicates that the Ivancea hoard was probably hidden around 280 BC. The hoard may have originated in the remains of settlements dating to the 4th‑3rd centuries BC identified on several locations in the area of Ivancea.Vilcu_NicolaeDACIA LX_8_p121-128
