A hoard of 32 deniers of the Cach 562 type, struck during the reign of Vladislav I, Duke of Bohemia (1109–1118, 1120–1125), was found on November 15th, 2020, by the forest path under the southern slope of the Výrovka Hill, in Bzová municipality (Beroun District). Four variants of the above mentioned type were identified in the hoard. Their presence indicates that they were struck together and under the same ruler, i.e.,Vladislav I. Since no ceramic fragments were found at the site, this coin assemblage had probably been stored in a vessel made of an organic material. Due to the single-type composition of the hoard and its size, it is considered to be an immediate cash associated with an economic activity of the owner or his social position. Remarkable are the iconography and artistic level of the Cach 562 deniers with the image of a rider on a horse, turned backwards and shooting from a bow, on the obverse, and figures of St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert placed, most likely, in the symbolic Civitas Dei – the Heavenly Jerusalem on the reverse.
