|Excerpt||In this paper, the author discusses three theriac capsules discovered in Dobroudja and listed in the National History Museum of Romania’s collections. Such pieces have been discovered in recent years in Constanţa, Mangalia, Silistra, Isaccea, Târguşor-Ester, Orheiul Vechi, Brăila and also in Bulgaria. Two of the capsules presented in the paper were found in Constanţa and the third one was most likely discovered around Silistra.
The capsules from Constanţa are local, south-European, copies of the Venetian pharmacy Testa d'Oro (made to advertise their own recipes). The third capsule is also a copy, most likely of the Cedro Imperiali pharmacy of Venice.
