Abstract

During archaeological rescue research conducted in 2005
at the Virovitica-Kiškorija South site, five Roman coins
were discovered, of which currently one, due to its poor state
of preservation, cannot be classified. Th e remaining four examples
date to the latter half of the second to the mid-fourth
centuries. During the Roman era, a rural-type settlement
was situated at the Virovitica-Kiškorija South site, which
existed from the second to mid-fifth centuries. Th ere was a
Roman road near the village, as well as several larger settlements,
among which was Orešac, Roman-era Bolentio,
which existed from the first to fourth centuries – although
more recent research indicates that it may have even persisted
into the first half of the fifth century. Th is settlement
belonged to the Roman province of Savia. Th e remaining
coins analyzed in this work are from ancient Orešac. These
are eight coins dated from the first to latter half of the fourth
centuries. Besides these, also analyzed here are Roman coin
finds from Orešac collected in 2007 by the brothers Davor
and Petar Lukinić. These examples date from the latter half
of the second to the fourth centuries.
