A child in the Late Sarmatian cemetery at Békésszentandrás-Fabó-tanya was buried with two Sarmatian coin imitations. Both coins were struck with the same obverse die and the reverses of both were decorated with stars and a crescent. The archaeological context of such coins is rarely known, although a few have been recovered from graves. For example, another burial in the same cemetery also contained some, confirming the assumption that these coins with a moon-and-star and crescent reverse served as amulets.
