Pietroasele is a commune in Buzău country, Romania, known
for its vinezards. The name can be translated as "the rockies".
The commune is composed of six villages: Câlţeşti, Clondiru
de Sus, Dara, Pietroasa Mică, Pietroasele and Şarânga.
It became famous with the discovery in 1837 of the Treasury
Pietroasa composed of several pieces of gold and precious
stones. The Romanian historian Alexandru Odobescu wrote a
book on the archaeological discovery.
The Pietroasele Treasure, an Ostrogothic hoard uncovered in
1837 by local villagers, is on display at the National Museum of
Romanian History, in Bucharest. The original gold hoard,
discovered within a large ring barrow known as "Istriţa hill" near
Pietroasele, is a late fourth-century Gothic treasure that included
some twenty-two objects of gold, among the most famous
examples of the polychrome style of migration perios art. The
total weight of the find was approximately 20 kilograms.
Of the twenty-two pieces, only twelve have survived,
conserved at the National Museum of National History,
in Bucharest: a large eagle-headed fibula and three smaller ones
encrusted with semi-precious stones; a patera, or round
sacrificial dish, modelled with Orphic figures surrounding a
seated three-dimensional goddess in the center; a twelve-sided
cup, a ring with a gothic runic inscription, a large tray, two other
necklaces and a pitcher.
A Dacian fortress is located at 1,5 km north of Pietroasa Mică
village. Ruins of a third-fourth century AD roman castra and
thermae were discovered in the area in the 1980s.
