Archaeological description
Dabîca and Angelescu 2014–17: Pond de plumb dreptunghiular unifață. 60,00 g; 3,5 × 3,2 × 0,6 cm. În câmp adâncit, cu chenar, vultur pe delfin spre dreapta; sus, în stânga, ΟΓ[Δ]Ο (ὄγδοον, cu un Δ mai puțin reușit și înclinat spre stânga); jos, în stânga, H. O optime de mină, raportată la o mină de 480 g. Pondul este de epocă greacă, probabil clasică, așa cum pare a indica folosirea prescurtării ΔΗ, iniţialele cuvântului ΔΕΜΟΣΙΑ, exactitatea greutăţii pondului fiind garantată de autoritatea municipală.
