coins from the treasure discovered near the Shilovo village of Ryazan Region
and preserved in the local museum were studied. All of
them are denarii of the first and second centuries. We believe that these coins
came to the region due to trade relations with the Chernyakhov population. We
assume that it was the most important counterpart in the domain of cultural and
political life, localized from the Don and the Dnieper to the Black
Sea and the Danube Region and, then, to Roman provinces.
Remarkably, these coins at the moment of their
concealment were not means of payment, as one can see, because the treasure
contains suberate, broken, and punched coins. We believe that they served as
raw material for jewelry, including those destined for the upper classes.
Key words: History,
Archaeology, Numismatics, Economics, Barbaricum, Roman Period.
