The hoard of Celtic coins found in Podmokly (Rokycany district, west Bohemia) in 1771 is extraordinary by its scope and content, and it attracted intensive attention of many numismatists in the past. The story was also transformed into a nonfiction book. The author of this article brings to light a new unpublished record from the memorial book of the Roman-Catholic parish in Zvíkovec, where the location of Podmokly used to belong to. This report was cited by the local priest Václav Krolmus (1790–1861) in his chronicle together with comparison of prices of some selected agricultural products. The limited information about the finding context of the hoard in the known sources is compared with this newly published report.
