The queer gold daggers from Perşinari and Măcin

The composition of the gold daggers from Persinari and Macin, corroborated with the fact that not the archaeologists, using specific methods, have uncovered these treasures, and no investigation was made at the supposed places where Persinari daggers were found, suggests many possible hypotheses concerning their provenance. These hypotheses are analyzed one by one in the work. Some of the accepted allegations can be accepted or infirmed but it appears clearly that there is not enough information to draw a firm conclusion, more investigations being necessary.
