Rostov Region, January 28, 2021 DON24.RU . Archaeologists of the Azov Reserve-Museum on the territory of the ancient city of Akaka discovered a unique find for its time. On a piece of silk shirt.

32 silver coins of the Golden Horde dating back to the time of the Battle of Kulikovo were found, Andrei Miloski, Candidate of Historical Sciences and head of the archaeological department of the museum, told DON 24 news agency.

The expert noted that the find is unique in the history of Azov. The reason for this was the time period in which the treasure was deposited:

“There were previous discoveries, coins of the Golden Horde are represented in many, but the 70s of the 14th century were a “blind spot” for us, numismatists were surprised that there were no coins of this time period. In this sense, this hoard is, of course, unique for studying the history of Azov.


Don archaeologists have discovered a treasure in the basement under the building. The archaeologist noticed that the lump with a piece of silk shirt was moved there from another location. A pit was constructed where various household debris and garbage was dumped. Apparently, the silk bundle was neither noticed nor covered, and a new building was constructed 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 simply drunk.

Can hide a lot of silver coins, but with a hangover, he no longer remembers where. Such small treasures varying in size from 5 to 6 dirhams existed even earlier, and samples of the 70s of the XIV century were not found in the Azov region before,” says Andrey Miloski.

According to the historian, 32 coins hidden in the 14th century were estimated at the monthly salary of a professional worker. By way of comparison, he cited the cost of buying a slave, and then it cost about 200 coins. According to the advertising portal Aviso, today you will have to pay from 500 rubles to several thousand for a coin of that era.

Unfortunately, there are no prerequisites to search for items related to the owner of the treasure, the museum employee noted:

“We are placing 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 surely be published, they can be found in databases, but it will be impossible to see them with your own eyes, Miloski says. The museum’s permanent exhibition is currently completed.
