POKLAD KELTSKÝCH MINCÍ OBJAVENÝ V BRATISLAVE ROKU 1776: LOKALIZÁCIA MIESTA NÁLEZU
Hoard of Celtic coins discovered in Bratislava in 1776. Localising the find site
Languages of publication
The study addresses the localisation of the hoard of Celtic coins discovered on the land of S. Ormosdy in a suburb of Bratislava in 1776. Written reports on the find from the period (J. H. Eckhel, K. G. von Windisch) and their comparison with information on S. Ormosdy’s land ownership history in historical-topographic material, church registers, official town books and historical maps are used for the purpose of determining the location. A critical analysis of preserved sources clearly indicates that the hoard was situated in the Blumentál suburb, specifically in the space demarcated by today’s Belopotockého, Mýtna, Povraznícka and Žilinská streets. From the perspective of the structure of the Late La Tène settlement agglomeration, the area belonged to the ‘satellite settlement’ near Námestie slobody (Freedom Square), where three additional hoard of Celtic coins were found in 1927, 1937 and 1942.
