|Excerpt||The author intend to reexamine a number of five Byzantine coin-hoards initially published many years ago based on some reference catalogues outdated by the latest research. The coins were re-identified using M.F. Hendy's catalogue "Coinage and Money in Byzantine Empire 1081-1261''. In republishing the results the model used in Coin Hoards was applied. The author focused on the hoards "Vlaşca", Bucureşti-Ciurel, Tulcea, Tuzla (Constanţa county) and Cristeşti (Mureş county).
Based on available data the "Vlaşca" hoards was buried between 1185- 1195. The hoards from Bucureşti-Ciurel, Tulcea and. Tuzla were dated between 1220-1230 and the one from Cristeşti in 1241 which is much later than was initially thought.
Besides the old Byzantine stamena issued before 1203, they also contain coins struck in the mints of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom, the ConstantinopoIian Latin Empire, the Latin Kingdom of Thessalonica and the Empire of Νicaea.
The author makes several considerations on the military-political circumstances under which the respective hoards were hidden (attacks of the Cumans and the Mongols’ invasion in 1241). The paper also deals with a coin of the "Vlaşca" hoards issued in Cyprus by Isaacus Comnenus (1184-1191) which is a unique piece in Romania. At the same time the author points to the regularly clipped coins of the hoards from Vlaşca, Tuzla and Cristeşti.
