Chapter Summary

In Avar archaeology, associating minting dates of coins found in burial assemblages with the ruling years of the issuing emperors was for a long time an established practice. The aim of this chapter is not to limit the study of coins struck for Heraclius and his successors to grave finds. In order to account for the different source values of all coins, the author divided the corpus into five classes of origin. The author also examined the coins found in either burials or hoards in those regions associated on the basis of written sources with the presence or the passage of the Onogur Bulgars - the steppe north of the Black Sea from the Kuban River in the east to the Dnieper and the Dniester Rivers in the west, Bessarabia and Walachia on the Lower Danube to the River Olt.
