The paper will in the first place analyse in
detail all pre-Imperial individual coin finds
(that is, coins issued in or before 31 B.C.) recovered
from the area of modern north-west
Croatia, more or less corresponding to the
area of the later province of Pannonia Savia.
In the same time, the corresponding hoards,
composed of the same types of coins, found
in this region will also be discussed. The rich
site of Segestica/Siscia, modern Sisak, has
yielded the largest number of finds, but other
lesser-known sites have also contributed to
the general picture of coin circulation in the
area, and the emphasis of this study will be
precisely on those finds. The vast majority of
coins are stray finds (i.e., fall under Reece’s
coin supply category),1 while only a few specimens were recovered during archaeological
excavations (i.e., fall under Reece’s coin loss
category).2 The largest number of specimens
are Roman Republican coins, as a result of
their large concentration in Sisak, but Celtic
(Iron Age) coinage is also represented in
significant numbers, especially that of the
Taurisci. The newly published data, however
scanty, allows a revision of some current
conclusions with respect to the distribution
of certain coin types, as well as a balanced
discussion on the coin circulation in this region
in the given period.
