Rostov region, January 28, 2021 DON24.RU . A unique find for its time was discovered by archaeologists of the Azov Reserve-Museum on the territory of the ancient city of Akaka. In a piece of silk shirt.
32 silver coins of the Golden Horde dating from the time of the Battle of Kulikovo were found, Andrei Miloski, Candidate of Historical Sciences and head of the museum’s archaeology department, told the DON 24 news agency.
The expert noted that the find is unique for the history of Azov. The reason for this was the time period when the treasure was deposited:
“There were earlier discoveries, the coins of the Golden Horde are represented in many, but the 70s of the XIV century were a “blind spot” for us, numismatists were surprised that there were no coins of this period of time. In this respect, this treasure is, of course, unique for studying the history of Azov.
Don archaeologists have discovered a treasure in the basement under the building. The archaeologist noted that the bundle with a piece of silk shirt was moved there from another place. A pit was built where various household waste and garbage were dumped. Apparently, the silk bundle was not noticed and covered, and a new building was built over the basement.
“Not all treasures appear when tired warriors jump, hide coins, are attacked, killed, and a treasure is formed. Sometimes a person is just drunk.
he can hide a bunch of silver coins, but with a hangover, he no longer remembers where. Such small treasures ranging in size from 5 to 6 dirhams existed even earlier, and no samples of the 70s of the 14th century were found in the Azov region earlier,” says Andrey Miloski.
According to the historian, 32 coins hidden in the 14th century were estimated at the monthly salary of a professional worker. For comparison, he cited the cost of buying a slave, and then it cost about 200 coins. According to the Aviso advertising portal, today you will have to pay from 500 rubles to several thousand for a coin of that time.
Unfortunately, there are no prerequisites for searching for items related to the owner of the treasure, the museum employee noted:
“We are laying this trench through the Center of the medieval city. Wherever you dig, you will definitely find something, but this “something” will definitely not be related to this treasure.”
The materials will certainly be published, they can be found in databases, but it will be impossible to see them with your own eyes, says Miloski. The permanent exhibition of the museum is currently completed.
