The forms of the name Břetislav, unusual in terms of the language development, appear on Czech coins from the 11th century. The name of the prince Břetislav I., who minted coins in 11th century, is stamped on them in three different forms: BRACI-SLAV, BRECILAVC, and BRETISLAV.
During the 11th century the appearance of the stamped A – innapropriate in the first syllable – predominates, as well same as the appearance of the stamped T. This disproportion can have several explanations, none of which is, however, fully satisfactory.
