Summary/Abstract: The paper publishes a hoard of Roman coins found accidentally in 2005 near Moshny village (Cherkassy administrative area, Ukraine). Apart from one coin of Mithridates VI, the hoard consists of coins of the period from Constantius II to sons of Theodosius I, basically of AD 383—388, of the same nominal value (AE2) and mainly copper, which is unusual for the area of the Chernyakhov culture. The authors think that the hoard of Moshny tells about involving of Gothic foederati into active coin circulation in the Roman Taurica.
