Abstract

An object of the study is a coin hoard comprising of 185 Late Antique coins found during archeological research at the village of Stambolovo, Ihtiman Municipality in 2020. A total number of 833 coins were found during the excavations including three coin hoards. All three coin hoards were found in the Premise 1 of Building 1, in different places, dispersed in sections of about 1.00 – 1.80 m. Probably, they had been collected in leather purses hidden around the roof beams. The chronological range of the second coin hoard presented in the study is 335 – 378 AD. It hasn’t been intentionally treasured up and represents daily coin circulation in the 370s and, categorically, the coins minted in 364 – 378 AD prevail. The coins from the hoards, as well as the single ones found during the research of Building 1, which is a closed complex, is with terminus post quem – 378 AD, and the probable reason for the building destruction and the coins’ hiding is the invasion of the Goths in 378 AD.
