Summary/Abstract: The references to this topic in the literature of the subject are full of ambiguity. According to the story,Wiadrowo is located west of Żuromin by the road to Brudnice. Although Brudnice are indeed situated to thewest of Żuromin, they are adjacent to it, while Wiadrowo is located north of the town. In individual publications,the number of coins also varies.Until recently, our knowledge of the settlements in this part of Mazovia during the period of Roman infl uencewas just as limited. This induced many scholars of this period to formulate the hypothesis about the zone of mutualfear which separated the two great archaeological cultures of these lands. Inasmuch as our knowledge of thepopulation of this area has been subject to substantial change as a result of the excavations conducted over the pastseveral years, the issues related to coin fi nds are still in need of further research. In the most recent publicationdiscussing this strip of Mazovia, eight coin fi nds from fi ve towns and one treasure have been mentioned.
