Găzdac, C., Zăgreanu, R. (2023) Roman coins – non roman owner. The hoard of Roman Imperial coins from Bistrița – Poșot forest, Romania. Journal of Ancient History and Archaeology 10(2).

For decades the analysis of hoard was frequently focusing on the moment of burial/hiding/deposition. The latest coin has served either as an absolute index for dating or, more reasonable, as a terminus post quem. But what it is happening when the coin is misleading the dating of the hoard? The paper presents such a case when the time spam between the latest coin and the artefact found with them indicates that the burial took place a century(ies) later.
