The date range of the coins may help you understand the reason behind the burying of the alleged treasure.
For example: You said the coins dated about between 400 and 200 years old? What dramatic events were happening in between those dates? say between 17th and 19th centuries?
With the decline of the Second Bulgarian Empire (1185 ? 1396/1422), Bulgarian kingdoms came under Ottoman rule for nearly five centuries. The Russo-Turkish War of 1877?1878 led to the re-establishment of a Bulgarian state as a constitutional monarchy in 1878, with the Treaty of San Stefano marking the birth of the Third Bulgarian State.
From this we can assume that perhaps the treasure was possibly related to events of the Russo-Turkish War of 1877?1878. From this if you could tell us the what the four languages are we might be able to point you in the right direction on where you may find a solution to the cipher.
There is a very rare old book that sold on the market for $250.000 dollars to an unknown collector. This book from my poor memory by Friderici in 1685 had many cipher codes that were known to be used well up after the Napoleonic wars. The book of codes and versions of it was used by European Royalty in secret dealing and treaties across Europe for about 400 years. This book although rare it is not the only copy. there are several copies of this book in several museums and Libraries across Europe.
It is possible that the Ottoman Empire had copies of this book too. If the treasure is related to the The Russo-Turkish War of 1877?1878. then perhaps one of cipher codes comes from that book was used in the four languages?
I have a picture of a page of the Cipher book this version I think is in German just to show you what it looks like. You may be able to find in your national library a copy or get information in what other library in Europe will have one.
I have two questions:
Was the Pot full of coins found near these places called Pleven or Ivanovo-Chiflik?
Now can you please tell me is the document or map you posted the original document or a photocopy?
