Abstract
At the end of the Bronze Age and early Iron Age in the area under discussion, we find three types of sickles: with button,with tongue-shaped handle and hook. They are present inisolated discoveries and more frequently in bronze deposits. In Oltenia,tools of this type were discovered at: Drăguţeşti (Gorj County), Govora, Grebleşti –Boişoara, Sacoţi (Vâlcea County), Jupalnic, Ostrovul Mare, Oreviţa Mare, Sviniţa (Mehedinţi County).
The practical function of the holes (harvesting grains, hayetc.)was supplemented by the cultic or votive uses.
