Abstract:

The current article presents an accidental monetary find from the medieval town of Prossek (the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). An attempt is made for a precise dating of the coin, using some of the features of this numismatic piece. Based on its dating, it could be linked to the events occurring around the restoration of the independent Bulgarian state by Theodore-Peter (IV) and John I Assen, as well as with the struggles in the lands of Macedonia related to the medieval history of both Bulgaria and the Byzantine Empire in which the leading role was played by Dobromir Chrysos
