Subtitle: Note on a 1st-Century BC Coin Hoard from Thrace

This note deals with a hoard of five silver coins from south-eastern Thrace. In the original publication these coins were described with errors and wrong identifications, thus a revision and reinterpretation is offered here. The hoard from Georgi Dobrevo is an unusual association of two Republican denarii, two imitative tetradrachms of late Thasos type in barbarous style and one broken piece – a rare tetradrachm of Ilium in the Troad. An overview of the historical, geographical and numismatic background of this hoard is given in order to elucidate its precise position and significance.
