Hi people,

After discovering that the alphabet used in the scenarios of The Witcher 3 (played this a lot) is actually a real world alphabet used in East Europe centuries ago, I wondered if there's any medieval coin with that script.

But searching "glagolitic" on Numista only shows tokens/medals and non-circulating coins, all recent, so I ask to you people if there's any old coin with that script.

Thanks in advance.

Yes it's right, The Glagolitic was used by ancient Slavs Until the invitation from Bizancie -Brothers sent to create a new language for Us .Bukvice wrote characters for a pattern on a new font.

There are no coins of old Slavs until the christianity is received, In Central Europe, they used pieces of cloth to pay -it was a woven linen cloth / natural flax / until the 10th century. Direction east use leather to pay / Ukraine and East/
foreign money and imitations were found passers-by merchants imported , he left the money voluntarily or violently.

The Glagolitic has long been preserved in southern Europe /Probably Croatia, Bulgaria/

,,This young Slav, who reminds you, did not need the money to live in harmony with nature,,

Another coin of Ciril and Methodius:

I live where there was a church where they performed liturgies -5 Km from the house.

Thanks for the quick answer.

So, the Slavs only started producing coins after the introduction of the Cyrillic script, right?

With that I think I can mark this thread as solved.
