Monede de tip Toc-Chereluş descoperite la Pecica (jud. Arad) / Toc-Chereluş Type Coins Found at Pecica (Arad County)
|Limba de redactare||română (rezumat în engleză)|
|Excerpt||The article brings back to attention the Toc Chereluş type monetary finds from Pecica (Arad county), that represent coin type variants from the second category. The coins from the numismatic collection of the National History Museum of Romania are divided in two batches: the first one consists of 17 coins that were transferred from the Coin Room of the Romanian Academy Library, while the other consists of five coins that were purchased in 1980. Since the circumstances of their discovery are not known, we can’t include them in a single hoard, however, stylistic similarities and their source (being acquired from the same collector), support this hypothesis.
The dies study helped us identify four obverse dies - three for the first batch, and one for the second -, but, due to the state of preservation of the coins, the situation of the reverse dies remains uncertain. Since we lack a hoarding pattern for the Toc-Chereluş coin types, identifying the typological variants or the dies is not reliable enough proof to establish to which category (one or two hoards) the Pecica coins belong.
