The site of Pautalia (modern Kyustendil, Bulgaria) was settled in the Iron Age by the Thracian Dentheletes tribe. It was located near thermal springs and remains of the ancient city include a temple of Asclepios and Roman baths. In the 1990s, excavation of nearby 2nd century A.D. tumuli unearthed bronze surgical instruments and a small bronze case containing a variety of medicines.

Almost every ancient coin can inspire questions from a curious mind. The Greek reverse legend on this coin reads, OVΛΠIAC ΠAVTAΛIAC. ΠAVTAΛIAC is Pautalia, but what and why is OVΛΠIAC? After his victories over the Dacians, Trajan enhanced the status of a number of provincial towns in Moesia Inferior and Thrace, including Pautalia, along with Serdica, Nicoplis ad Mestum, Marcianopolis, and a few others. These towns were authorized to mint coins and given the additional name Ulpia, after Trajan's father.
