How were Roman Coins Exportated under the Empire? An Example from the Mid-Danube Area

http://histoiremesure.revues.org/document882.html
(in French)

"The recent discoveries of Roman coins beyond the mid-Danube have given rise for some time to various hypotheses regarding their mode of exportation to Northern European people. The question is addressed answer here in order to shed interpretative light, whether political or economic, on the coins found in Barbaricum.
An analysis of denier composition (treasuries and isolated discoveries) found on eitherside of the Danube Limes suggests that most of the silver money was exportated in mass (as imperial grants to tribes), whereas merchant exchange does not seem to have stimulated a brisk circulation between the Empire and the Barbarians."

The Danube Limes and the Barbaricum (294-498 A.D.) A Study In Coin Circulation

http://histoiremesure.revues.org/document884.html
(in English)

"The area which this study treats is the current territory of Romania. Some features of the currency in these regions include: a preference for silver coin hoarding during the 4th c. A.D. drawn from the silver issues from the imperial period for Transylvania and Banat; a relative abundance of the siliquae single discoveries in the area of the Sāntana de Mures-Tchernjakov culture, related to the stipends given to the Goths by the Romans; a concentration of the most important siliquae hoards in a small area in Oltenia. The 5th century is represented mainly by the gold issues of Theodosius ii, probably received by the Huns as stipends. The bronze coins from the 4th century A.D. were quite abundant until 378 A.D. but almost absent in the 5th c. (with some exceptions in the area nearby the Roman Limes). In Banat, one finds very consistent presence of the Fel Temp Reparatio issues, in both hoards and single discoveries and a lack of precious coin. The imitation using bronze and lead is a “boundary” one which is found mainly in the Empire of the last quarter of the 4th and to the 5th c. A.D. The coins took a western road to arrive in Transylvania and Banat and a southern one in Walachia and Moldavia."
