Abstract: This paper submits some of the findings, which were considered as Mediterranean imports or Mediterranean-influenced artefacts and attributed to the Oc-Eo Period, to a fresh examination. Special attention is given to the two gold discs from Oc Eo imitating the design of a Roman coin. Both are to be regarded as pieces of jewellery probably used as pendants. For the model coin, from which the design of one of the gold discs is derived, a new identification is suggested as an issue of Commodus (180-192) providing accordingly a new <i>terminus post quem</i> for the manufacture of the gold pendant.
