A significant in amount numismatic complex was registered during the archaeological research of the Late Roman unfortified settlement near Malko Tranovo village. It is dating from the period of the 3rd – late 4th/ early 5th c. The coins reveal the existence of a coin circulation on the territory of the settlement – in the 3rd c. it was limited in size and entering without interruption into a more intensive phase during the reign of the heirs of Constantine I. For certain the circulation continued until the initial years of the 5th c. So far it is difficult to say whether it was renewed in the early 6th c. due to the presence of one only coin of 40 nummi of Justinian I.
