Among the rich various archeological material found during the systematic diggings in the region of the fortress Ryhahovetz (1985 1988) and the period analysis of the terrain in previous years, a lot of numismatic material was found.

From the analyses of the coins found in the fortress if immediately becomes clear that, although they vary in terms of type, chronology and value, they could be internally divided into two basic groups.

The first group, which is considerably smaller, includes all antique coins made from II century BC to the last decades of VI century AD. The earliest coins in this group are bronze pieces on the central part of which there are stylistic presentations similar to the coins of Philip II. Three pieces have been found so far which are the earliest coins ever found in the area of the fortress by archeologists.

The number of the coins dated from III century to V century is considerably bigger altogether 24 pieces from which only 2 are bronze and the rest are copper. The earliest of these are the bronze coins of Gordian III (238 244) and Philip (father 244 249) minted in the monetary facility in Adrianopol. In chronological order next are the coins of Licyuis (253 268), Aurelian (270 275), Diocletian(284 305), Maximilian Herkuli (286 305), Konstantin I (306 337) and his successors up to Teodosii I (379 395), coined in the coin facility of Heraklea and Konstantinopol. Some of the coins of the aforementroned emperors are difficult to define due to their badly surface.

The antique and early Byzantine coins found in the fortress Ryahovetz frame a period of almost 8 centuries starting from the first hold II century BC to the last decades of VI century. The coins from the first stage of coin circulation in Ryahovetz give to a considerable extend the time of economic welfare of the settlement, the trade relations and the relations within its population. The numismatic material from the fortress Ryahovetz gives us the possibility to make a general record of the stages of its existence. This division into periods is to a great extend based and specified on the basis of the existing written sources. This division into periods has been made using the evidence found by the archeological excavations in Ryahovetz.

All this grants us the possibility to distingnish between 5 stages of the creation, development, existence and destruction of the fortress.

The coin findings from Ryahovetz which are numerous and various in terms of origin give us new and interesting information about thrhistorical fate of the population of this region combined will this they introduce new evidence about the history of the fortress and crucial moments of its centuries long existence.
