The aim of this paper is to present a hoard, which is most likely a fragment of a more extensive treasure and which
was recovered by the Romanian judicial authorities in 2014. The finding place of the hoard remains unknown,
most of the recovered information indicating that it was found in Banat, somewhere in the area of Timiș and
Caraș-Severin Counties. The first part of this paper is dedicated to the presentation of the hoard which consists of
17 billon coins struck by John II Komnenos and 15 billon coins struck by Manuel I Komnenos, the latest coin of
the hoard being dated between the years 1160 and 1164. In the second part of the paper an analysis of the similar
findings from the Banat area is proposed, alongside with the sketching of a historical context for the hiding of this
batch of coins and an analysis of the impact had by the byzantine coin in the local monetary circulation.
