Summary/Abstract: In spring 2020, a hoard of Roman silver coins was discovered near the village of Khmelivka in the north of the Zhytomyr Oblast (Ukraine). In the summer and autumn of the same year, archaeological research was carried out on the site, and another coin was found. The hoard consists of 63 Roman imperial denarii, issued by seven emitters: Vespasian, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius, Commodus and Septimius Severus. The chronological pattern of the hoard is typical for the territory of the Chernyakhiv Culture. It is of type D, subtype D-3 according to A. Dymowski and K. Mygin’s typology, and finds analogies in other parts of Barbaricum. However, the hoard is unique in other ways: firstly, it is one of the few finds in Eastern Europe that have been examined archaeologically; secondly, it is one of the most northern finds from the Roman Period in Eastern Polesye. This region has traditionally been considered particularly important for studying cultural genesis in Eastern Europe in the first half and middle of the first millennium AD.
