In this text, we present five extraordinary metal finds from the area of Netolice, the Prachatice District, dated to the period from the end of the 8th to the 10th centuries. Only two of them (a gilded belt strap end decorated with niello, and an imitative coin based on the Bavarian type) are chronologically related to the existence of the Na Jánu Hillfort as a centre; the other ones are earlier. All these finds are evidence of long-distance contacts of the area with the southeast (the late Avar type) and with the west especially (the two belt strap ends and two coins) and they were probably related to the so-called Linz Trail. The most important is the denier of Louis the Pious, minted in Paris, which extends the evidence of the circulation of Carolingian coins in Bohemia, and its close connection with Bavaria in the 9th century. The imitative issue based on the Bavarian type, dated to the period 967–976, extends this, relatively numerous, group of coins and attests the Bavarian influence in the 10th century Bohemia.
