A reconsideration of the coins from the Dacian hoard found at Agârbiciu (Sibiu County)
The inventory register of the Brukenthal National Museum mentions, among the numbers 4552 and 4559, a small hoard made of two fragmented silver fibulae, five coins issued by the city of Dyrrhachium and one of bronze, not allocated to an issuer. According to the register, the hoard was discovered 3/4 kilometers from the village of Agârbiciu, at the point: Hinter dem Ramreg, by Ioan Bârsa, a village resident. The hoard was initially published by Kurt Horedt, but with some mistakes. After reviewing the existing information, it seems that the treasury contained the following coins:
1. Dyyrhachium – 1 ΠΥΡΒΑ / ΞΕΝΟΝ (-13); 1 ФIΛΛIA / ΞΕΝΟΝ (-10); 1 KAΛΛΩΝΟΣ / MENIΣKOΣ (-6); ΛΥΚΙΣΚΟΥ / MENIΣKOΣ (-4); 1 MENIΣΚΟΥ / ΦΙΛΟΝ (-3).
2. Roman imperial copper alloy coin, as or dupondius.
