Abstract: The hoard of (reportedly) La Tène iron artefacts from Lipany (two knifes, axe, fork, ploughshare) has been appearing in literature for more than thirty years. The analysis of primary sources from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries demonstrates that these objects are standard settlement finds. The iron ploughshare that does not have an analogy in La Tène Period possibly dates to Roman Period, or (more probably) to the High Middle Ages. The (reportedly) La Tène hoard from Lipany is just fiction created by erroneous interpretation of the National Museum records.
