Description The article presents the set of unpublished Hallstatt period finds from Ha D period found at Provodov-Ludkovice Rysov hillfort, south-eastern Moravia. The sites has been systematically robbed by metal-detectorists and treasure hunters. The finds, showed here, do come mainly from these detectorists, some of them are deposited at the exhibition located in Provodov, some at the Museum of South-eastern Moravia in Zlín. The set comprises of five Hallstatt Boat type fibulae, with one fibula that has no analogies in Central Europe, and one fibula foot type (Fusszierfibel), which represents the very first such find from a Ha D3 hillfort in Moravia. The largest set of Scythian arrowheads in Czech Republic (46 pieces) is very important in solving the problematics of the origins of the Hallstatt period hill forts. This set can be dated to the first half of the 6th century, and due to its overall find spectrum and its chronology, the comparison with Hallstatt period hillfort Smolenice Molpír is at hand, as many finds from Rysov have their analogies there.
