A big hoard of money was found in 1936 on the Southern slope of Vinik, Niš Municipality, not very far from the road leading toward the village of Kamenica. The money was found at a depth of 0.40-0.50 m, in the foundations of a rather big structure destroyed in fire. The first hoard was found in January 1936 while delving the vineyard soils at the estate of Todor Mišić. The money was in a 0.40 m earthen vessel that fell to pieces immediately after excavation. The vessel was covered with a brick with engraved images of a running horse and dog. The Niš Museum acquired approximately 20 kg out of this find.

   The second archeological find was discovered in March 1936, some 40 km from the first hoard, at the estate of the Djordjević family. The find contained 23 kg of Roman denari, also contained in an earthen vessel of the same size placed some 0.70 m deep in the earth. The vessel also fell to pieces. The Museum of Niš did not manage to acquire a single coin from this locality.

   A part of the money found in Kamenica that was placed for safekeeping in the Museum of Niš was destroyed during the Second World War when the Museum was bombed. The other part consisting of some 4000 pieces of Roman silver coins is presently in the Museum. Apart from the denari from the Republican era, there are the denari of 28 rulers and members of the rulers’ families from Neron to Severus Alexander.

   This hoard is the most significant find from Niš and its surroundings and one of the biggest hoards of Roman money. A part of this treasure is in the National Museum in Belgrade, but most of it found its way into the museums and private collections throughout the world.
