The donation may occurred between 1388 (death of Dmitrь) and 1393/95. Dabiživь donated to the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in Arhiljevica only the village Crьkvišta and not two villages (i.e. Crьkvišta and Sekirnina) as the secondary literature erroneously asserts. The term sekirnina means a clearing.

I sela iže jestь iznašьlь brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь, iže mu jestь darovalo gospodstvo mi za jegovo pravověrno porabotanie). He donated the village with all boundaries, rights, vineyard, mills and fruit trees to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš confirmed the endowment of Duke Dmitrь in a charter from 1388/1389. In the boundary description of the village Kozjak the village Crьvulje is attested (A se megja sela toga Kozijaka: ... tako i niz reku Elьšinicu i do gradišta nad Crьvuljemь i ōd gradišta na dělь izlětši, tako i niz Gabrovь Dolь i ōd Gabrova Dola dolu na rasputije i ōd rasputija koi grěde putь ōd Crьvulje).

According to the context of the latter it must have been situated in the area of Lojane, Zlokukjane and Vaksince.

111825 Dyrrhachion Place The town of Dyrrhachion was one of the most important Byzantine strongholds in the Adria from the 6th century to the 12th century. The importance of Dyrrhachion lied in the fact, that it was one of two adriatic heads (the other one was Apollonia) of the Via Egnatia. According to Šufflay, Dyrrhachion is the nucleus of the other fortresses in Northern Albania. The emperors Anastasios, Justin and Justinian issued many building and also the refortification and renovation of the fortifications after the retreat of the Ostrogoths and an earthquake in 518. From the 12th century on until 1501 the town was under changing Byzantine, Norman, Epirotes, Anjou Sicilly, Albanian and Venetian rule. In the year 1394, the Venetians again renewed the fortifications and built a canal to dry the swamps of Balta and transform the peninsula of Dyrrhachion into an island similar to Zara and Trau. The Ottomans conquered the town in 1501. (AA I, 80 (27) - Dalmatia et Dyrrhachio; LjS PP., I, 113 (109) - Duka Drački).

The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with the villagе Dědino (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana.

The village of Dědino is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Strumica in 1519 and 1573. The village of Dědino is mentioned in the tetraevangelion from the 16th century and in the gospel book from 1741.
116265 Dĭbrěšte Place On 25 October 1343 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for the Monastery of the Saints Peter and Paul at Lim in Dĭbrěšte near Prilep.
123482 Eastern Road to the Monastery of Treskavec Place During a TIB survey in June 2016 Mihailo St. Popović documented the Eastern road to the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Treskavec. In this case he came across substantial remnants of the respective road. The Holy Mother of God in Treskavec (Bogorodica Trěskavska) was widely venerated by emperors, kings, queens, the clergy, noblemen and -women as well as the ordinary people in Byzantine Macedonia as well as in the Southern Balkan Peninsula. Amongst them was also the future Serbian emperor Stefan Uroš V (reigned 1355-1371), who visited the monastery and showed his great reverence to the Mother of God according to the following passage in the third charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Monastery of Treskavec from 1344/45: “My Majesty spoke with the queen and We sent the dearest son of Our Majesty, king Uroš, in order to venerate the Most Pure Mother of God” (“I zgovori se kraljevьstvo mi sь kralicomь i poslasmo prěvьzljublenaago syna kraljevьstva našego Uroša kralja da se pokloni prěčistoi Bogorodici …”). There can be no doubt that the medieval road and, thus, the one used by Stefan Uroš V in the middle of the 14th century is the Eastern road. It has substantial remains, which are leading to the monastery and can be dated to the Middle Ages. The fabric of these remnants is very different from and apparently older than the Western road and, moreover, it is following points of worship and spirituality in the landscape (i.e. frescoes on rocks), which are systematically placed in the surrounding area. The pilgrims are virtually accompanied on their way up to the peak of the mountain and, thus, prepared to meet the Mother of God in Treskavec, whilst they pass the fresco of the Archangel Michael in the vicinity of the village of Dabnica and two frescoes of the Mother of God. The reward for a hike with a duration of three hours to the monastery then and now is the sight of a religious and cultural centre, which was endangered and partially destroyed by a blaze in 2013 and in which the main church of the monastery of the Dormition of the Mother of God was miraculously spared for the generations to come.
118439 Frugopulovo selište Place The charter, which is mentioning the settlement site of Frugopul, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište). The ford of Frugopul appears in the boundary description of the mountain Ōgraždeno i Draguljevo with surrounding area, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, which was given to the Hilandar Monastery and confirmed by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan after May 1343 (I planina Ōgraždeno i Draguljevo i podьplaninje sь vseju ōblastiju. I megja imь: brodь Stavrakь, niz Veliju rěku, na Frugopulovь brodь/ I planina Ōgraždeno i Draguljevo i podьplaninje sь vseju ōblastiju. I megja imь: brodь Stavrakь, niz Veliju rěku, na Frugopulovь brodь). The ford seems to be in connection with the settlement site.
11656 Frugovi Vlasi Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the settlement site of Frugovi Vlasi with boundaries to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (selište Frugovi Vlasi sь megami). Because of the Vlachs using this land, the settlement site can be interpreted as a temporary settlement and not as a deserted village (as selište could suggest). Probably identical with the village Frangovo, which is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583.
10590 Gabrovo (1) Place The dijakь (scribe) and anagnostь (reader or lector) Dragoje moved in the place before the field Trěblěgrьmь, which was above Gabrovo near the Belasica mountain, in order the erect a Church dedicated to the Holy Mother of God and to the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel (izide dijakь anagnostь Dragoje kako estь ulezlь više Gabrova u Belasici predь Trěblěgrьmь zidati hramь prěčistee crьkvь i besplьtnihь silь Mihaila i Gabrila). At the request of Kalinik, the Bishop of Banьska (Velbužd, Kjustendil), made the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan the endowment of Dragoje exempt from various duties and allowed Dragoje live here freely with his father-in-law. Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated to Dragoje also a field Podь and another field beneath Gabrovo. The Serbian Emperor gave him the permission to settle people near the church.In 1376/77 the mother of the Serbian Despots Jovan and Konstantin Dragaš, Evdokija, donated together with her sons the village of Gabrovo with boundaries, summer pasture, mountain, vineyards, fruit trees, watermill, vegetable gardens, field, meadow, hunting grounds, river and fords to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on Mount Athos (Selo Gabrovo sь sinoromь, sь planinomь, sь brьdomь, sь vinogradi, sь voštьjemь, sь vodeničjemь, sь kipuriami, sь poljemь, sь lugomь, sь lovišti, sь rekomь, sь brodovi). The Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš confirmed after 1376/1377 the donation of the village Gabrovo to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I prьvo selo Mokrane, i selište Crьkvišta, i selište Makrijevo, i selo Borisovo, i selo Zubovo, i selo Gabrovo, i selo Napodu).

It was granted to the Monastery of Hilandar by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš in the year 1378/79 (selo Glažnja). The village of Glažnja is registered as Glažna in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
11064 Globica (1) Place The Land Inventory Brebion contains evidence on the field Monohorь, which was exchanged for a vineyard in Globica (Niva Monohorь što kupihomь i měnismo u Globice za vinograd, ōd Mogilice do puty krpenьska, i dolu do prěčnogo puti).

The hamlet/village Globica appears in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (sь zaselkomь Globicomь; selo Globica; i što se kь Zletovoi kami vali tozi Zletovu budi a što se kь Globici vali tozi crьkvьno). In the same boundary description of the hamlet/village of Globica a katun is also mentioned (podь katun).

I voinikь koi je tu narekomi Geōrьgije Repana). ------------ The forged transcript A of the collective charter of Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Monastery of Chilandar from the years 1303-1304 (or after 1331) reports that the village of Glusii together with Kalogjurgje Repana, the place Krastavʼcь and a katun of Vlachs was granted to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita near Skopje and afterwards to the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) in the vicinity of the Chilandar Monastery by the Serbian King (I dahь...i Glusii.

10901 Glusi, Mill Place In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328), at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of a mill in or near the village of Glusi is mentioned (i drugo selo Glusi pod crьkvomь, sь mlini i sь pročimi pravinami jego.

The site appears only in the later transcript (Hil. 150), which was made probably in the first decade of the 15th century. In the boundary description of Vilska the village of Glьboky dolь is mentioned (Ōtь Vodičnikove glavě upravь na u Pogorь, na Glьbokyi dolь, na Staʼnke). The village of Glьboky dolь is also registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
120843 Glьbočica Place Glьbočica (now called Dubočica reka) is the right tributary of the river called Kriva reka. The river Glьbočica is 11 km long.

122843 Goliqueline Place The Byzantinо-Serbian border in Macedonia became the central subject of negotiation between the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) and Charles de Valois (1270-1325) in 1308, when the latter was aiming to conquer the Byzantine Empire. The French ambassadors met the Serbian King in his tents at Goliqueline (date et actum in tentoriis nostris apud Goliqueline). Since the Serbian King was staying in tents at this time (in tentoriis nostris), Goliqueline was certainly not a residence or a settlement, but a plot of land (perhaps a summer pasture) that was in the mountains. If Kotraža (2) is to be located in the same area, then it could well be that both King Stefan Milutin and his mother, the Serbian Queen Jelena Anžujska (ca. 1230-1314), stayed in the region during the Serbian campaigns against the Byzantine Empire.
120788 Golěm Ōdrьn Place Golěm Ōdrьn is mentioned together with the rivers of Moštanica and of Lukavica in the boundary description of Psača in the charter by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Monastery of Hilandar from 1354/55 (Psačju sь vsěmi pravinami, a megja sela togo Moštanica kako pripada u rěku Lukavicu i do gde se izovrьša Moštanica i povrьhʼ planine nizʼ drumь kako spada posrěd golěmoga ōdrьna). The village of Odreno is registered as Gorna Odrina and Dolna Odrina in Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572. The expression "golěm ōdrьn" is correctly translated by Siniša Mišić as "great rockfall" or "landslide". According to the charter, there was a local road, which went through the area. It is conceivable that the village of Odreno emerged in this area in Early Modern times. Its appearance in the Ottoman Defter and in Early Modern maps as well as the phonetical relation to the name of the topographical entity Golěm Ōdrьn can be perceived as proof for such a claim. The localisation and identification is based also on the context of the boundary description.
132033 Gorica Place Andrěašь, the son of the Serbian King Demetrios Blukasinos (Vlьkašinь), donated in 1388/1389 the village Gorica with the metochion to the Saint Andreas Monastery by the river Treska (trudomь i podvigomь raba božia kralevikь andreaša se že priloženie svetě crьkьvi hrisovulě sьvoiomь.....Selo Momkovo i Gorica s metohomь).

The village of Gorěnce is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583 as Gorenci.
11020 Gostivar Place In the list of 14 abbots of the Serbian church the Abbot Danil from the Monastery of Gostivar occupies the eleventh place (gostivarskii Danilь). -------------- The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated, together with his son the Young King (mlad kralь) Uroš, the village of Štenče together with all rights and boundaries to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin of Htětovo. The boundaries in the charter are called after the sites Modriče and Gostivar (Štenče selo sь vsěmi pravinami i s megami, sь modričkymi i gostivarskymi, i do metochyje Svetyje Nedělje, pravo nizь děl prěz Veliku, na Dubь jedini, na Lisiče Jazbine, pravo naa Mogilice, na cěstu u Crьveni Brěg, a ōt Crьvenoga Brěga pravo na Glogovnikь).

120158 Gradečnica Place The Bulgarian Tsar Ivan III Šišman donated in 1378 the village of Gradečnica with people and rights to the Monastery of John (Ivan) of Rila (selo Gradečnica, sь ljudmi poimenju. popь Tudōrь sь dětmi mu, i sь rodomʼmu. i Petrь Theōdosovь sь bratiami si. i vьsja praviny města togo). The village of Gradečnica is registered in the Defters for the Sanjak Köstendil between 1570 and 1573. The village was later known as Gorna Gradešnica. The village Gradešnica emerged in 20th century from Gorna and Dolna Gradešnica and does not correspond with Gradečnica.
116112 Gradište Place The hamlet of Gradište is attested in the charter (the so-called "zbirna hrisovulja") of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) from the years 1303/04 and 1336/40-1342/45 for the Monastery of Hilandar (I pride kraljevьstvo mi crьkvь svetije Bogorodice iže vь Lojaně i sь selomь Lojanomь sь vsěmi megjami sela togo i sь vsěmi pravinami i sь vinogrady, i s nivijemь i s livadijemь i sь voděničijemь i sь zaselky Kьkrino i Zaplьžane i Kobilija Glava i Dobrutovci i Gradište, da jestь metohь svetie Bogorodice hilandarske).

120455 Grkovь Dolь Place The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Nikola Stanjević became his possessions in the vicinity of Konče from the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan.

The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with thе villagе of Grkovь Dolь (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana.

122849 Kotraža (2) Place The Serbian Queen Jelena Anžujska (ca. 1230-1314), the mother of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), confirmed in Kotraža (na Kotraži) the borders, which Dubrovnik held during the reign of her husband Stefan Uroš I (reigned 1243-1276). If Goliqueline is to be located in the same area, then it could well be that both King Stefan Milutin and his mother stayed in the region during the Serbian campaigns against the Byzantine Empire.
120217 Kozijak Place The boundary of the village of Kozijak is mentioned in the boundary description of the village Karbinci (do Kozijač’ke megje). The village Karbinci and the land of Kar’ba were subject of dispute between the monks of the Hilandar Monastery and the guards of the emperor. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV sent David Mihojević, the kefalija (governor) of Štip, in order to determine the boundaries of the disputed land. The Serbian emperor issued on 8th of June 1355 a chrysobull charter. He confirmed the right of the Hilandar Monastery over the village and the land with the boundaries determined by David Mihojević. The Duke Dmitrь got the village Kozjak as his inherited property from the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for his loyal service (Iako istini i vьsesrьdьčni surodnikь i brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь k věčnomu Tvorьcu i nekonьčavajemu i nemimohodimu i vьsa mira sego ni vь čto že vьměni i vladicě svojemu Hristu priveza se.

The village Kozjak is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil in the years 1519, 1550 and 1573.
132197 Kozijak, Local Road, put Place A local road of Kozijak (na ptъ kosnačiki) is attested in a Slavonic graffito, dated to the last decades of the 13th and the first decades of the 14th century, in the medieval Church of Sveti Gjorgji on the Southern corner of the city walls of the Roman and Early Byzantine City of Bargala.
122173 Kočane Place The Monastery of Saint Demetrius in Kočane owned a deserted settlement site in Jastrebnica.

To vʼse utʼvrьdivь i zapisavь dahь Svetomu Nikitě, a Svetago Nikitu dahь mojemu pirʼgu sь vʼsěmь jego utʼvrьždenijemь). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan together with his son and his wife donated the Church of Saint Nicholas on the river Pčinja under the fortress Kozlje, which was founded by his grandfather Uroš, for life to the metropolitan of Serres. They granted him all rights of the church together with the land, the people, the vineyards, watermills, bought estates, estates given for the sake of soul and hunting grounds. After the death of Jakob, the metropolitan of Serres, the rights should devolve on the Monastery of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel near Prizren. (Izьobrěte carьstvo ni hramь velikago arhïjereja Hrïstova i čjudotvor᾿ca Nikoli, vь městě naricajeměmь na P᾿šini podь Kozljemь, jegože sьzda praroditelь carьstva mi svety kralь Urōšь, i nastoještïimi vrěmen᾿mi porušenь, i vlasteli nasiljajemь, ili istěje rešti poměrop᾿šenь...prijem᾿ši vo rucě svoi blagověrna i hristoljubivaa carьstva mi carica kira Jeleni, jako biti jei vьtoromu htitoru sego božьstvьnago hrama svetago Nikoly…i dastь svojeju rukoju si božьstvnyi hramь svetago Nikoly mol᾿bniku carstva ni prěōsvešten᾿nomu mitropolitu sěr᾿skomu kirь Jakovu, da si jo ima i napravlja sь nikymь neōtjemljemu do svojego živōta vь poměnь carьstva ni; i paky po smr᾿ti mitropolita sěr᾿skoga kirь Iakōba, si svety i božьstvnyi hramь svetago Nikoly da si ima monastyrь carьstva mi svetago arhistratiga Mihaila I Gabrïila u Prizrěně, sь vsěmi pravinami iže jestь zapisalo carьstvo mi vь hrisovulě Svetago Nikoly i vь hrisovulě arhistratiga Mihaila I Gabrïila, sь zemlomь i sь ljud᾿mi, i s vinogradi, i s voděnicami, i s kupljenicami, i sь zadušьninami, i sь lovišti, prosto rek᾿še sь vsěmi pravinami…A se megje zemli crьkovnoi Svetago Nikoly: ōtь broda pšin᾿skoga podь gradomь prěko brьda podь gradь na Grьličinь Kami, i ōtь Grьličina Kamena vse nizь P᾿šinju do Ratilьca, i ōtь Ratilьca prěko u Veliku, i paky ōtь togažde broda p᾿šin᾿skoga putemь na brьdo prěma gradu, i těmьzi voznikomь, kako grede kol᾿nikь na Blat᾿ce u Veilju Lok᾿vu, i ōtь lokve u velii dubь, i ōtь velijega duba pravo nizь dolь nizь Ōsikov᾿cь u Veliku).
119473 Kraište Place Based on the medieval written sources and the toponymy, we are able to identify the border zone between the Serbian and Bulgarian realms in the first half of the 14th century. According to the Serbian Archbishop Danilo II (ca. 1270-1337) the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) invaded Serbian territory before the Battle of Velbužd on 28 July 1330, i.e. the area of the Upper Valley of the River Struma and the town of Zemen, which both belonged to the Serbian realm. In the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572 the region of Kraište is named "Gorno Kraište". Based on the toponymy, we are able to discern the respective area as a border zone between the two aforesaid realms. The renowned historian Konstantin Jireček (1854-1918) maps a toponym called "Kraište" to the North-West of Velbužd (today Kjustendil in Bulgaria), which as a term in itself denotes a border zone.
11042 Krajmirovo selište Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion the Abbot Isaja bought a field called Kraimirovo selište near Carev Studenc from the daughter of Kraimir, Kjura, her sister Jera and their children Vitomir, Lei, Milj and Roman (Niva u Careva Studenca, Kraimirovo selište, što kupi igumьnь Isaije u Kjure, Kraimirove čtjere, I u sestre jei Jere, I u nih dětei, u Vitomira I u Leia I u Milja I u Romana, za 20 kьbьlь žita u gladno vrěme, i priuzesmo měhь sirenija I polutьkь slanine.

17863 Kremenčevo Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated a field near Kremenčevo to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Niva u Kremenčeve nizь putь koi grede u lugь na desno II. pogonь).
121329 Krilatica Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with land near Krilatica, where a certain Neōr had resided and where the Emperor had moved miners from Zletovo (I na Krilatici zemlja koja jestь ōt Trnov’ca na čimь jestь sědělь Neōrь, posadi rudare koje prěseli ōt Zljetove). The village of Krilatica is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572.
131355 Krivi Dolь Place The Duke Dmitrь got the village Krivi Dolь as his inherited property from the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for his loyal service (Iako istini i vьsesrьdьčni surodnikь i brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь k věčnomu Tvorьcu i nekonьčavajemu i nemimohodimu i vьsa mira sego ni vь čto že vьměni i vladicě svojemu Hristu priveza se. I sela iže jestь iznašьlь brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь, iže mu jestь darovalo gospodstvo mi za jegovo pravověrno porabotanie). He donated the village with all boundaries and rights to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš confirmed the endowment of Duke Dmitrь in a charter from 1388/1389 (I selo Krivi Dolь za Suševomь ōnuge u šiju s megjami i sь ōtesomь i sь vsěmi pravinami sela togai). The village Krivi Dolь is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil in the years 1519, 1550 and 1573.
116256 Kroja Place In June 1343 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for the town of Kroja most probably in Kroja itself.
116465 Krupište Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) donated beekeepers with beehives near Krupište to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos on 12 June 1349 (konь krupištь). The current village of Ularci, which is located 2 km to the North-East of Krupište, probably emerged from this settlement of beekeepers. Stefan Dušan confirmed the Monastery of Sveti Petar Koriški as metochion of the Monastery of Hilandar on the sabor (state assembly) held at Krupište on 17 May 1355 (zьbor na Krupištihь; na zboru na Krupištihь). The respective charters were composed by the Serbian Logothet Gjurg in Ovče Pole. Stefan Dušan issued a third charter in favour of the Monastery of Hilandar on the same sabor at Krupište on 2 July 1355 (zborь na Krupištihь). The charter was written by the same Logothet in Ovče Pole. Also in 1355 a charter for the Church of Sveti Nikola in Dobrušta (in Kosovo) was issued by Stefan Dušan, when he was in Krupište (stoještu... vь Krupištehь). The village of Krupište is mentioned in the charter of the Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš for the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos, which they issued after 1376/77 (I u Krupištehь selo Ulijari i selište Butkovcь). The village of Krupište is attested in the Lesnovski pomenik (Krupišta; 16th century). It is also registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519, 1550 and from the years 1570 to 1572 as Kurpšta.
118757 Krusobon Place The kyris Ioannes Sguros Orestes held a country residence with court and houses near the village Krusobon, a garden and a vineyard all in the katepanikion Ano Balabista according to the charter of Manuel Manglabites (ἐν τῶ κατεπανικίω τῆς Ἄνω Βαλαβίστας, εἰς τὸ χω̣ρίον τὸν Κρούσοβον, καθέδρα μετὰ αὐλῆς καὶ ὀσπητίων ὧν ἀνήγειρεν ὁ τ̣οιοῦτος Ὀρέστης· πλησίον ταύ̣της π̣ε̣ρ̣ιβόλιον μοδίου ἑνὸς ἡμίσ̣εος. Καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς στάσεως τοῦ Καλένου ἀμπέλιον αὐτοῦ [...8.. μοδίων] τριῶν).

(Nad Mlačicami ōtь Zakutija do lěškoga puti, i do Krušice, i do rěke Htětove) -------------------- The site Krušica appears twice in the Land Inventory Brebion. The monk Leondij donated a field near Krušica to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin of Htětovo (285, art. 15: Niva koju dade kalogerь Leondije, poredь Krušice, prěs-putь, ōtь Sipun᾿dinove mege do Kanaděja). A certain Kjur and Kostica donated the field Monohoravь in Krušica to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin of Htetovo for the sake of salvation (285, art. 17: Niva u Krušice Monohoravь, ōtь dolnega puti, ōtь Dubca i do Stankove kuplenice, dano ōtь Kjure i ōtь Kostica za dušu).

116483 Kumanovo Place The toponym "Kumanovo" can be associated with the Turkic people called Cumans. Present day Kumanovo lies probably on the remains of the ancient Aquae, shown as a pictogram on the Tabula Peutingeriana. The medieval written sources do not provide evidence for Kumanovo. This is probably due to the fact that Žegligovo and Nagoričino were the centers of the region in the Middle Ages. The first appearance of Kumanovo in the sources is in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil. Kumanovo is registered in the Defter from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572. Therein, it is described as a village. The Ottoman traveller Evliya Çelebi visited Kumanovo in the year 1660 and refers to it as "kasaba" ("small town"). The British physician Edward Brown passed through "Comonova" in 1668/69.
17873 Kumanьski brod Place King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated a field under Kumanski brod to the monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Niva podь Kumanьskimь brodomь do Kuklě što ju Velika razbi, i do Stana dromahara i do Miha zlatara).
118251 Kunarjane Place The village Kunarjane near Ključ is mentioned in the charter (the so-called „zbirna hrisovulja) of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the years 1303/1304 and 1336/1340-1342/1345 for the Monastery of Hilandar. In the charter the donation by Hrelja of the village with dependant peasants, their pieces of land and all rights was confirmed to the Monastery of Hilandar (I selo u Ključi Kunarjane sь pariki i sь stasmi ihь i sь vьsěmi pravinami sela togo). The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos in 1340/1341 confirmed the village Kunarjane as a property of the Hilandar Monastery (καὶ εἰς τὸ Κλαδίον τὴν Κουνάριανιν). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village Kunarjane, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, to the Monastery of Hilandar after May 1343. The boundary description of the village Kunarjane is preserved in both variants of the charter (I u Ključi Kunarani i sinoromь: kako teče is planine potokь megju Ključь i Kunarane, tere potokomь u Veliju rěku a po ōnoi strane rěke na Ōzrinь, na mogilice, na lokʼvu, na sadove, na kopišta, na Črьveni brěg, na veli dubь, pravo u rěku. I trьgь Svetago Ilije.

The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village Kunarjane to the Monastery of Hilandar (I niže Strumice selo Kunarani).
130322 Kysělica Place
117496 Kьkrino Place The hamlet of Kьkrino is mentioned in the charter (the so-called "zbirna hrisovulja") of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) from the years 1303/04 and 1336/40-1342/45 for the Monastery of Hilandar (I pride kraljevьstvo mi crьkvь svetije Bogorodice iže vь Lojaně i sь selomь Lojanomь sь vsěmi megjami sela togo i sь vsěmi pravinami i sь vinogrady, i s nivijemь i s livadijemь i sь voděničijemь i sь zaselky Kьkrino i Zaplьžane i Kobilija Glava i Dobrutovci i Gradište, da jestь metohь svetie Bogorodice hilandarske).
112693 Lagoborovce Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of several villages to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55. Amongst others, the village of Lagoborovce is mentioned in the boundary delimitation of its possessions (tere prěko na Pribislaōvь krьstь koi jestь nadь Lagborovci/prěko na Pribisalь krьstь, koi jestь nadь Lagoborovce).
117570 Leaskobtzos Place The church of Saint Constantine and Helena in Ohrid owned a piece of land beneath Leaskobtzos. The property was bound by the estate of the church of Saint John the Theologian at Kaneo in Ohrid in the east and by a road in the west (ἕτερον χώράφιον κάτωθεν τοῦ Λεασκόβοτζου, πλησίον ἐξ ἀνατολῶν Ίωάννου τοῦ θεολόγου τοῦ Κανεβοῦ καὶ ἐκ δυσμῶν ἕως τῆς ὁδοῦ). The village of Leaskobtzos (Leskoec) is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583.
124404 Least Cost Path Bitola Prilep Place Although a vast variety of secondary literature has been published on the Via Egnatia, some parts of its route still remain obscure, for instance the section between Ohrid, Resen and Bitola. The archaeologist Viktor Lilčikj Adams has argued for a multi-layered approach to this question. Least cost path (LCP) calculations were applied by Markus Breier to replicate/predict the route between Ohrid, Resen, Bitola and Prilep, and, thus, to complement the existing written sources, archaeological evidence and maps. Based on the aforesaid multi-layered approach a LCP model was put into existence, which was published in 2017. LCP are viable models that can help to understand historical transportation networks. Thus, they have the capacity to complement the thorough analysis of the surviving written sources, the archaeological evidence in situ and published as well as unpublished maps. The model of the section between Bitola and Prilep is viable and can be regarded as a good approximation. However, it has to be noted, that the result is an idealised representation, not necessarily the real course of the road. Various uncertainties (e.g. present day data, uncertain locations of historical landmarks) also have to be considered, when the results are interpreted. Nonetheless, computer generated models like LCP can lead to new insights regarding historical landscapes. The integration of social, political and economic factors as well as agent-based methods like view-shed might further enhance the viability of these models. These factors, however, are difficult to formalise, so that they can be used within a GIS.
124408 Least Cost Path Ohrid Bitola Place Although a vast variety of secondary literature has been published on the Via Egnatia, some parts of its route still remain obscure, for instance the section between Ohrid, Resen and Bitola. The archaeologist Viktor Lilčikj Adams has argued for a multi-layered approach to this question. He distinguishes for the section Ohrid – Resen between a summer and a winter road. The summer road led from Ohrid to Velgošti and via the mountain of Istok (1661 m altitude) and the village of Petrino to Resen, which is the most direct and shortest way between Ohrid and Resen. The winter road offers three variants: The first ran from Ohrid via Kosel, Opejnca, Zavoj, the pass of Bukovo (1207 m altitude) to Resen, which is the longest and safest section. The second variant connected Ohrid, Leskoec, circumvented the elevation of Bigla (1228 m altitude) to the South-East of Opejnca, crossed the pass of Bukovo and reached Resen via Izbište. The third led from Ohrid to Leskoec, Skrebatno, Ilino and Resen. Least cost path (LCP) calculations were applied by Markus Breier to replicate/predict the route between Ohrid, Resen and Bitola, and, thus, to complement the existing written sources, archaeological evidence and maps. Based on the aforesaid multi-layered approach a LCP model was put into existence, which was published in 2017. LCP are viable models that can help to understand historical transportation networks. Thus, they have the capacity to complement the thorough analysis of the surviving written sources, the archaeological evidence in situ and published as well as unpublished maps. The section of the LCP model between Ohrid and Resen corresponds to the aforesaid third variant of the winter road (namely from Ohrid via Leskoec, Skrebatno and Ilino to Resen). The model presented is viable and can be a good approximation to the road between Ohrid and Bitola. However, it has to be noted, that the result is an idealised representation, not necessarily the real course of the road. Various uncertainties (e.g. present day data, uncertain locations of historical landmarks) also have to be considered, when the results are interpreted. Nonetheless, computer generated models like LCP can lead to new insights regarding historical landscapes. The integration of social, political and economic factors as well as agent-based methods like view-shed might further enhance the viability of these models. These factors, however, are difficult to formalise, so that they can be used within a GIS.
123873 Least Cost Path Štip Petrič Place The military expansion of the Serbian medieval state in the valley of the river Strumica (Strumešnica) followed the transit route between the cities of Skopje and of Serres via the towns of Štip and of Strumica. The existence of this route is attested in descriptions of demarcations of landed property belonging to the monasteries of the Holy Mount Athos, which can be found in medieval Byzantine and Serbian charters. The particular scientific challenge lies in the fact that the route cannot be localised on the basis of archaeological findings, in part because no excavations have taken place until now and in part because modern tarmac roads overlap significant parts of the medieval route. It is precisely at this point that the calculation of ‘least-cost paths’ based on applications from Geographic Information System (GIS) is a very useful aid for both historians and archaeologists. Based on the preparatory scientific work by Mihailo St. Popović and on Global Positioning System (GPS) waypoints, which he recorded during two surveys in the area of research in 2007 and 2010, the geographer and GIS-technician Markus Breier calculated a model, which predicts the course of the medieval route in the border zone between the towns of Štip and of Petrič. The result obtained shows clearly that our lack of sources can be compensated to a certain extent by computer-based models, which have the potential to enhance the scientific work of archaeologists and to familiarise the wider public with complex historical interrelations through visual representations.
120141 Lestia, Summer Pasture Lakteba Place The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos donated the pasture Lakteba in Lestia near Melnik in September 1327 (ἔτι δὲ καὶ τὴν περὶ τὸν Μελενίκον εἰς τὰ Λέστια δημοσιακὴν πλανηνὴν τὴν Λάκτεβαν). The monks of the Zographou Monastery on Mount Athos requested the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos to allow them an exchange of property. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III granted the monks the summer pasture Tzerkbistan near Melnik in March 1328 and confirmed that they will use it instead of the property Laktebas in Lestia near Melnik (Καὶ ἀντὶ τῆς κατεχομένης παρ᾿αὐτῶν τῶν μοναχῶν διὰ τῶν δηλωθέντων χρυσοβούλλων περὶ τὸν Μελενίκον δημοσιακῆς πλανηνῆς τῆς οὕτως καλουμένης Λάκτεβας, ἐπιλάβηται καὶ κατέχη τὸ μέρος αὐτῶν, τὴν περὶ τὸν αὐτὸν τόπον τοῦ Μελενίκου, δημοσιακὴν ἑτέραν πλανηνὴν τὴν λεγομένην, Τζέρκβισταν, ἡ βασιλεία μου τὴν ζήτησιν καὶ παράκλησιν τῶν εἰρημένων μοναχῶν προσδεξαμένη). The forged chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, which is dated in the text to January 1342, but was produced between the year 1357 and 1372, confirmed the possesion of Tzerkbistan near Melnik by the Zographou Monastery (καὶ ἀντὶ τῆς πλανηνῆς τῆς λεγομένης Λάκτεβας τῆς κατεχομένης παρὰ τῶν δηλωθέντων μοναχῶν, ἐπιλαβέσθαι καὶ κατέχειν τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν, τὴν περὶ τόπον τοῦ Μεληνίκου δημοσιακὴν ἑτέραν πλανηνὴν τὴν λεγομένην Τζέρκβησταν).
7018 Levunovo Place In the year 1300 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the village of Levunovo to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (na cěstu koïa grede na Levunovo selo i ōtь Levunova sela na Běli Kami, ōt Běloga Kam`ne uz` dělь na Dlьgu Polěnu, ta nad Svetuju Bogorodicu Črьnogor`sku do Črьnoga Kamene).
11022 Leška Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated together with his son, the Young King (mlad kralь) Uroš, a piece of land above Mlačice delimited from the hiding place to the road named after the site Leška, Krušice and the river of Htětovo to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (Nad Mlačicami ōtь Zakutija do lěškoga puti, i do Krušice, i do rěke Htětove). --------------- The road from Leška is mentioned several times in the Land Inventory Brebion (286, art. 18: Niva tu nad brazdom, i do lěška puti u Jablan᾿ce ō desnu stranu careva puti, što kupi piskopь Ignati za Budimirova konja, što běše dalь za dušu ōtь Polelějevěhь synovь i ōd Raduna i ōd Gjuroja; 286, art. 19: I proti toi nivě ōd lěve strane puty do Strězova polja i do lěš᾿ka puty, kuplen᾿no ōtь Gjuroja i ōtь svesti mu Radoslave, što imь jestь těhь děl polovina ōtь surod᾿nikь za 27 perperь kьda běše igumьnь Nikodimь; 287, art. 21: Pole, što dade gospodinь kralь ōtь starogo broad želinьskoga kako zahodi putь ōtь Htětove, i gore do lěškoga puti, što zahodi kь rěcě; 287, art. 23: Niva pod lěš᾿kimь putemь, i nizь drugi putь kako ide ōtь zgora, što dade Branilo ōtь Želina za dušu, do kuplenice Stan᾿kove i do Kjurine; 287, 26: Niva megju Dvěma Mogilicama dana ōd Galina za dušu, ōd tьsta Pardova, jako brazda zahodi ōd vrьbe i do lěška puti i do rěke; 287, art. 27: Niva pod lěš᾿kimь putem᾿ nizь izvodь hvališ᾿ki prodana ōd Parda i ōd Theōdora šure mu, polovina prodana, a polovina harizana; 289, art. 41: Niva Pardova podь lěškimь putemь kako se staje hvališki putь i lěš᾿ki i do megje hvališ᾿ke, što kupismo i što jestь dano crьkvi za dušu Theōdorovu i Aleksinu; 295, art. 60: Niva što kupismo u Strěza ōd lěš᾿ka puti nizь putь htětovьsky u kneževu nivu, na 6 zametь; 296, art. 66: Azь Voih᾿na, Polelějevь unukь, prodah nivu Materi Božijei Htětovьskoi pod lěškimь putemь, što su prěžde moi roditeli prodali do Strězove zemle, za 15 perper; 296–297, art. 68: Niva koju kupi ikonomь Neōfitь u Kumana, Kjurohnina syna, i u pašenoga mu Dragoslava, i u šuren mu u Dragije, i u Rajana za 8 perperь, do lěška puti i nizь nikiforovьski putь iz dola, i uz Rebra i do crьkvna stlьpa).
10992 Lešok, Church of the Holy Mother of God Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski donated the Church of the Holy Mother of God located in Lower Polog near Lešok and and three estates of the priest not far away, which were known as bishop’s court since time immemorial, to the bishopric of Prizren (I tako i u Dolnijemь Polozě u Lěšcě crkьvь svetyje bogorodice i pri njei tri stasi popovske što se zove dvorь piskopovь ōtь věka, da jestь svobodno ōt vsěhь rabotь kraljevьstva mi i podanьkь, kako je i ōtь isprьva bylo).
20422 Lešok, Church of the Sveti Athanasij Place After the year 1308 the church of Sveti Athanasij in Lešok was found by the Hieromonk Antonij (Izvoleniemь ōca i vьplьšteniemь sina i pospěšeniemь svetago duha azь eriomonaahь Anthonie pridohъ i rastježahь i raskopahь gabryje i uravnihь bregove i načehь si hramь zidati svetago athanasija vь dni kralja milutina i vtorago kralja sina mu stefana i tretiego kralja sina mu dušane). Between the years 1346 and 1355 Antonij was appointed Bishop of Lower Polog and his name was changed to Ioannikij (i prizva patriarha blьgarskago i arhiepiskupa srьbskago iōanikija i stvori zborь u skopi i blagosloviše ego na carьski sanь i bystь prvonastolny carь srbskoi zemli i grčkoi i pomorskoi arhiepiskupa iōanikija blagosloviše na patriarhiju srbskoi zemli vь to carstvo blagosloviše anьtonija na episkupstvo dolnemu pologu prvonastolna po izvoleniju božiju prětvoriše ime jemu iōanikie poneže něe bilo prěge episkupь polozě).
11074 Lešt Place The site is mentioned several times in the Land Inventory Brebion. The monastery recorded in its inventory a field under Lěšt, which was bought from Krpen (283, art. 2: Niva pod Lěštьjem kupena ōtь Krьpene, na 15 pogonьь). Kir (kyrios) Pardo Theōdorь donated a field underneath Lěšt in a valley to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the sake of his salvation (283, art. 4: Niva pod Lěštьjem na padi što priloži Pardo kir Theōdorь za dušu,…).

19215 Lěsnovo (1), Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael Place Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski came, according to the detailed Vita of him, from a rich family in Osečko pole (ōt strani Ōsečkōmъ pole, roditelemь bogatu sělo i blagočestivu). After a vision he built the Church of the Nativity of the Holy Mother of God with the funding of his parents on the field of Osiče (na pole Ōsiče). He then departed for the Lěsnovo Monastery (vь monastirь Lesnovskyj), from which he was released after a probationary period with the blessing of the abbot to enter a hermitage near the monastery and Zletovo (za nekoj skïtь blizь prjamo manastirь, vь dolь prjamo Zletovo). The lively influx of people, who were sick and obsessed, caused that the Saint sought solitude in Lukovo (i preide vo stranu Lukovo). The Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski escaped also from Lukovo and found refuge in the mountains, where he stayed on the mountain top Oblovъ until his death (verhъ Ōblovъ). The saint appeared in a dream to a Russian monk named Iosif and entrusted him to transfer his body from Oblovь to the Lěsnovo monastery. Iosif brought the relics of the Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski to the Monastery of Lěsnovo, where numerous miracles occured near the saints relics. In such a way the only daughter of a rich Armenian from Kratovo was healed (Vo gradь Kratovo). According to the Vita, the saint also came to the aid of a local Bulgarian prince named Mihail in the fight against the Pechenegs and Cumans. Mihail had to flee from his opponents to Ratkovica (vo stranu Ratkovicu). He was able with the assistance of the saint to sidle up to the opposing general Mavragan near Rataica in Zletovo (u Slětovo) and to kill him (u Rataicě i ubi Mavragana). Finally, the Vita also mentions the Serbian Despot Jovan Oliver and his erection of a large monastery church in Lěsnovo in honor of the saint, with which he replaced a small church building. The short life of the Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski, on the other hand, reports that the saint himself built the Lěsnovo monastery. The 12th-century Vita of the Saint Joakim Osogovski mentions the Church of the Saint Michael the Archangel in the mountains of Lěsnovo (Lesnovsuju gljemu goru...hram vь ime arhïstratiga Mihaila). The scribe Stanislavь completed in 1330 a Slavic manuscript in the Monastery of Saint Michael the Archangel in the mountains of Lěsnovo, which was in the domain of Ovče Pole and the region of Zletovo (vь ōblasti ōvčepolьskoi vь horě zljętovstěi, v gorě lěsnovьstěi, v monastiri stgo arhistratiga Mihaila). The scribe Stanislavь finished his prologue of the manuscript in the time, when Dragoslavь ruled over the land of Zletovo as Župan (ōbdrьžjaštu horoję Zlętovьskoję županu Dra’goslavu). In the course of the renovation of the monastery (1340/41) a Slavic donor inscription was placed on the stone at the katholikon. The inscription begins on a marble lintel above the entrance door in the west of the katholikon (i.e. on the eastern wall of the narthex), continues outside above the south entrance to the naos, can be dated to the year 1340/41 and mentions the katholikon as "Church of the Great Commander of Heavenly Hosts, Archangel Michael" (hramь velikago vojevode vy`snh silь arhistratiga mihaila). The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Jovan Oliver with his wife Anna Mara and his son Kraiko, who were living during the reign of "King Stefan" (Stefan Uroš IV Dušan) are mentioned as the founders. According to the Slavic inscription, the following possessions belonged to the monastery at that time: the village near the monastery Lěsnovo, the hamlet Lukovo, the village Bakovo with the Church of Saint Nicholas (Sveti Nikola), the hamlet Globica, the village Dobrěevo, the Church of Holy Prophet Elisha (Sveti Elisei) in the village Drěvěno, the hamlet Peštno, the Church of the Saint Prokopios (Sveti Prokopie), the Katun of the Vlachs Stroi, the Church of Saint Nicholas (Sveti Nikola) of the priest Sïfie, twenty houses in the town of Štip and annually 100 perpers from the revenue of the market in Zletovo. The scribe Stanislavь copied a Menaion at the request of Jovan Oliver destined for the Monastery of the Saint Michael the Archangel in Lěsnovo in 1342 according to the colophon of the manuscript written in Slavic language (rukoju mnogogrěšnago Stanislava). The toponym Lěsnovo appears in this colophone (vь městě rekoměmь Лěsnově), although it is not clear whether this refers to the village or the monastery. Before the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan was able to found the bishopric of Zletovo with its seat in the Lěsnovo Monastery in 1346/47, he sought consensus with church and secular dignitaries. He reached the consensus with the Serbian Patriarch Joanikije II, the Archbishop Nikola of Ōhrid, the Metropolitan Jovan of Skopje and the founder of the monastery, the Serbian despot Jovan Oliver. In the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo from the year 1346/47 the erection of the monastery by the Serbian Espot Jovan Oliver is mentioned (sьzdati jemu hramь vь ime velikoslavnyhь i besplьtnyihь činonačelnikьь arhistratiga Mihaila i Gabrïila, vь straně že zletovьscěi rekomōje Lěsnovo...v městě Lěsnově; crьkvi Arhanggelu u Zletovoi; podь crьkvь svetago Arhistratiga lěsnovьskoga). This plot of land gave its name to both the monastery and the neighboring village of Lěsnovo. A Greek inscription on a fresco above the entrance door in the west of the katholikon (i.e. on the eastern wall of the narthex) from 1349 shows that the narthex was erected and painted before 1349 (probably 1347/48) (ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τοῦ ταξιάρχου Μιχαὴλ). A note in the Slavic manuscript Lesnovski parenesis relates that it was written in Zletovo at the place called Lěsnovo in the Monastery of the Holy Archangel Michael in 1353 (vь zemli zljatovsьskoi, vь městě rekoměmь Lěsnovo, vь ōbiteli svetago arhistratiga Mihaila), as Arsenije was the Bishop of Zletovo. The Eparchy of Zletovo was probably abolished around 1370. The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo with all its possessions to the Hilandar Monastery (crьkvь lěsnovьsku svetagō Arhaaggela; crьkvь Svetagō arhaggela lěsnovьskoga). In 1428, 1429 and 1434 a Slavic Apostolos, a Slavic Mēnaion and a Slavic Oktōēchos were written in Lěsnovo, about which corresponding marginal notes provide information.
18520 Lěsnovo (2) Place There is a brook called Štona in Lěsnovo (2). The name Štona indicates that there was a mining activity of the Saxons at Lěsnovo (2) in the Middle Ages. The scribe Stanislavь completed in 1330 a Slavic manuscript in the Monastery of Saint Michael the Archangel in the mountains of Lěsnovo, which was in the domain of Ovče Pole and the region of Zletovo (vь ōblasti ōvčepolьskoi vь horě zljętovstěi, v gorě lěsnovьstěi, v monastiri stgo arhistratiga Mihaila). The scribe Stanislavь finished his prologue of the manuscript in the time, when Dragoslavь ruled over the land of Zletovo as župan (ōbdrьžjaštu horoję Zlętovьskoję županu Dra’goslavu). The village Lěsnovo (2) is mentioned in the Slavic donor inscription of the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1340/41 as a monastic property. The scribe Stanislavь copied a Menaion at the request of Jovan Oliver destined for the Monastery of the Saint Michael the Archangel in Lěsnovo in 1342 according to the colophon of the manuscript written in Slavic language (rukoju mnogogrěšnago Stanislava). The toponym Lěsnovo appears in this colophone (vь městě rekoměmь Лěsnově), although it is not clear whether this refers to the village or the monastery. Furthermore, the village Lesnovo (2) appears in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (selo blizь crьkve Лěsnovo). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) with all its possessions, including the village Lěsnovo (2) with its hamlet Lukovo (selo Lěsnovo I sь zaselkomь Lukovōmь), to the Hilandar Monastery.

18114 Maistorie Krupnici Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of the settlement site of Maistorie Krupnici to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55 (Selište Maistorije Krěpinci). The village of Krupnici, probably identical with the settlement site of Maistorie Krupnici, was granted to the Monastery of Hilandar by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš in the year 1378/79 (Selo Krupnici). The exact location of the settlement site is unknown, but, on the basis of the written sources, it was probably situated in the Skopska Crna Gora.

18534 Morobisdos Place A praise poem by the Byzantine poet Manuel Philes (13th/14th century) for the Byzantine general Michael Dukas Glabas Tarchaneiotes relates, among other things, about the conquest of Morobisdos (Εὐτζάπολιν δὲ συλλαβὼν Μοροβίσδου, Σκόπιά τε Σθλάβιτζαν ἐξ εὐανδρίας, Καὶ τὸν Πίαντζον καὶ τὸ περὶ τὸν Στρόμον, Καὶ τὸν περὶ Στρούμμιτζαν ἄφθονον τόπον). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated in 1300 the village Avazgovo to the Monastery of Saint George–Gorg near Skopia (Skopje) with all its possessions (especially pastures - summer and winter pastures), which had already been given to the monastery by the Byzantine emperor Manuel I.

Palaiologos confirmed the possession of the Iberon Monastery over the fields in Mustanitza (ὁμοίως καὶ τὰ εἰς τὴν Στρούμμιτζαν, εἰς τὸ χωρίον τὴν Μονστάνιτζαν, χωράφια αὐτῶν, ἅπερ κατέχουσιν ἔκπαλαι).

The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed the possessions of the Monastery of Hilandar in April 1348, among them also the Monastery of Saint Nikola in Mraka (crьkovь na Mracě svety Nikolae).

The Serbian emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the church of the Virgin Hodegetria near the village of Mušutišta to the to the Monastery of the Holy Archangels in Prizren (Selo M’šutišta i sь crьkvami Svetomь Bogorodicomь i Svetymь Symeōnomь, sь zemlomь, i s vinogrady, i sь vokijemь, i črьnicami, i sь mliny).

In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328), at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective village is confirmed (I selo u Moravě narekomoje Izmira). The forged transcript A of the collective charter of the Serbian King Milutin for the Monastery of Chilandar from the years 1303-1304 (or after 1331) reports that the village of S'mira in Morava was granted to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita near Skopje and afterwards to the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) in the vicinity of the Monastery of Chilandar by the Serbian King (i u Moravě selo S'mira ... To vʼse utʼvrьdivь i zapisavь dahь Svetomu Nikitě, a Svetago Nikitu dahь mojemu pirʼgu sь vʼsěmь jego utʼvrьždenijemь).
117512 Nagoričino, Church of Saint George Place According to the Life of Saint Prohor Pčinjski (11th c.) Prohor settled in a small cave in the deserted area of Nagoričino in Žegligovo as a hermit (vь glubokuju pustynnju Nagoričeskuju). In Nagoričino also his hermitage (cave) is to be found. The original construction of the Church of Saint George in Nagoričino is dated to the 11th century and associated with Saint Prohor Pčinjski or the Byzantine Emperor Romanos IV Diogenes (reigned 1068-1071). The Life of Saint Joakim Osogovski from the 12th century gives an account on the building activity of an anonymous Emperor (hram prpodbnomu vъ ime svjatogo velikomčenika Hristvo Gjeōrgia). The church fell without doubt into disrepair in the last quarter of the 13th century. According to the Slavonic inscription at the Western entrance to the narthex, the church was renewed by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) in the year 1313. In this inscription a certain abbot called Andonij is also mentioned. This hint suggests that a monastery existed at that time near the church itself (Izvoleniemь božiemь sьzda sja domь svetago i velikoslavnago mjačenika Hristova Geōrgijě vь dny svjatorodnago i prěvysokago kralě Uroša Milutina, bogomь samodrьžьcu vsei srbьskoi zemli i primorьskoi, pri bogočьstivěi kralici Simonidě, i pri igumeně Andony, v lěto 6821 [1313]). According to the Slavonic inscription from 1318 in the interior, the church was decorated with frescoes by order of the Serbian King Milutin under the abbot Benjamin (Božiemь izvoljenijemь sьzʼda se ōt osnovanie, i popisa se, čьstnii hramь podaijemь vsakiim prevysokago krala Stefana Uroša, vь lěto 6826, pri igumeně Beniamine). Another inscription in the interior above the Western entrance has not been preserved. Between 1300 and 1318/21 a certain anagnost Radin from Nagoričino in Žegligovo (anagnosta Radina Nagoričanina izь Žegligova) wrote a gospel for the priest Zagoranin in Sušica. The old Serbian Genealogies (rodoslovi) and Annals (letopisi) report that the Serbian King Milutin had founded or endowed numerous monasteries, amongst others also the Monastery of Saint George in Nagoričino (Nagoričino svetomu Geōrgiju; i vь Nagoričine svetago Gjeōrgija; i druguju vь Nagoričinu; i vь Nagoričine Georgia). In the same sources Žegligovo and Nagoričino are subsumed in one geographical unit (i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crьkov svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago mučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgija). The Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops by Archbishop Danilo II and his successors confirm the renewal of the church under the Serbian King Milutin (i crkovь svetaago Georgьgija nagoričьskaago). The abbot Benjamin from Nagoričino is named in the list of abbots in two Serbian charters (1317 and one forgery from the 15th century, where he is referrred to as nagoričkii Beniaminь, respectively nagorički Beniaminь). According to the aforesaid Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops, the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (reigned 1321-1331) gathered his army in the forefront of the Battle of Velbužd in the first half of 1330 on a field called Dobrič, located in today's South-Eastern Serbia at the confluence of the rivers Južna Morava and Toplica. He intended to confront the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) at this place. When messengers informed him that the Bulgarian Tsar had intruded Serbian territory near the castle of Zemen on the upper reaches of the river Struma, where the then border of the Serbian Kingdom lay, he set his army in march and first moved to Nagoričino, where he prayed in the Church of Saint George (priide vь monastirь svoi kь svetomu mučeniku Hristovu Georьgiju Nagoričьskomu). The victory of King Stefan Dečanski at the Battle of Velbužd on 28 July 1330 is described by the Serbian annals and the aforesaid Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops. According to the Serbian annals, King Stefan Dečanski captured Michael Šišman and brought him to Žegligovo (aduxere eum in Segligovo), where the Bulgarian Tsar died and was buried in the Church of Saint George in the village of Nagoričino (et sepulchro datus est in Ecclesia sancti Georgii in pago Gorichina). On the contrary, the Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops describe that the Bulgarian ruler had already died in the battle. His corpse was brought to the Church of Saint George in the place called Nagoričino (prěnesenu Georьgija vь městě rekoměmь Nagoričьskaago) and entombed there. In a ledger containing a list of debtors and guarantors of the Ragusan merchant Mihailo Lukarević from Novo Brdo, dated to the period from 1432 to 1438, a certain Radiuoj Tatich from Nagoričino, who was born in Kokÿno (de Chochina in Nagorizno/Nagorzno) is mentioned. On his campaign against the town of Skutari (now Shkodra in Albania) in May 1474 the Ottoman Pasha of Rumeli stayed with his army in Nagoričino, which was three days of journey away from Kosovo Polje (Bassa Romanie cum numeroso et valido exercitu dimissus est in loco dicto Nagoricino, distanti a Cossovo itinere dierum trium). In the Pšinski pomenik (15th c.) Nagoričino is attested as Staro Nagoričino ("Old Nagoričino"), while the toponym of Nagoričino is obviously used for Mlado Nagoričino. Nagoričino is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 with the attribute "Staro" and from the years 1570 to 1572 as Gühne Nogoriç, Köhne-i Nagoriç and Köhne-yi Nogoriç (with the meaning of "Staro Nogorič"). The assumption that Edward Brown (1668-1669, published in 1673) saw the Church of Saint George in Nagoričino, while passing through Kumanovo, is probably incorrect ("near which [scil. Kumanovo] there is still a Greek Monastery, upon the side of the hills"). Rather he wrote about Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in the Skopska Crna Gora, to the West of Kumanovo. In 1704 the Serbian scribe Jerotej Račanin refers to Nagoričino as 40 churches ("40 crkvy" or Turkish "krka klisa"). From the viewpoint of Art History, it should be emphasised that the Serbian King Milutin had the upper part of the Church of Saint George built on the destroyed walls of an older edifice in 1312/13 as evidenced by the aforesaid inscription above the Western entrance. The frescoes in the church were completed in 1317/18 according to the aforesaid inscription from 1318 in the interior and were executed by the painters Michael and Eutychius. The Church of Saint George is in the form of an inscribed cross with five domes, with barrel and groin vaults and a semicircular apse on the East (the altar space is relatively large and is continuing to the space of the nave), while the older edifice is clearly visible (especially on the Northern side of the church).
117680 Naklь Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of two fishers near Naklь to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (U Naklě 2 ribara). The exact location of the place Naklь is unknown. There are at least three proposals, where to find Naklь.
9297 Nanov Dol, Mountain Place From the time of the issue of the Htětovo Charter the Mountain (pasture) Nanov Dol was prohibited to Vlachs, Albanians and the travničar (the state pasture tax collector) (I vidě kraljevьstvo mi crьkьvь Svetuju Bogorodicu Htětovьsku ne imuštu planine, i priložihь planinu Nanovь Dolь sь vsěmi megami ōkolʼnimi, da ju ima svetaja crьkьvy, i da ne meteha nikto ōtь vladuštihь kraljevьstva mi, ni travʼničar, ni Arʼbanasinь, ni vlahь. Kto li se naide zabavljaje na toi planině da plati kraljevьstvu mi 300 perperь). ----------------------- The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued a charter to the Monastery of Bogorodica Htetovska (Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo), also known as the Htětovo’s Charter, between 24 September 1343 and 15 October 1345. The terminus ante quem seems to be the year 1345, when Stefan Dušan had already started to use the title “Master of almost the entire Empire of Romania”, and as terminus post quem the period after the autumn of 1343, when Stefan Dušan had started to use the title “Master and/or King of Greek lands” for the first time.
120565 Napodu Place The dijakь (scribe) and anagnostь (reader or lector) Dragoje moved in the place before the field Trěblěgrьmь, which was above Gabrovo near the Belasica mountain, in order the erect a Church dedicated to the Holy Mother of God and to the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel (izide dijakь anagnostь Dragoje kako estь ulezlь više Gabrova u Belasici predь Trěblěgrьmь zidati hramь prěčistee crьkvь i besplьtnihь silь Mihaila i Gabrila). At the request of Kalinik, the Bishop of Banьska (Velbužd, Kjustendil), made the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan the endowment of Dragoje exempt from various duties and allowed Dragoje live here freely with his father-in-law. Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated to Dragoje also a field Podь and another field beneath Gabrovo (i u podu niva i vinu podu kude bude jako rastrebiti s mcě... a s vadomь na bratosinovьskihь topilь podь spьsšьkee nive i vrětenь nivu s vadomь i podь Gabrōvō Berotičevu nivu). The Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš confirmed after 1376/1377 the donation of the village Napodu to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I prьvo selo Mokrane, i selište Crьkvišta, i selište Makrijevo, i selo Borisovo, i selo Zubovo, i selo Gabrovo, i selo Napodu). The village of Napodu is registered in the Defters for the Nahiya Strumica in the year 1519. The village was abandoned by its inhabitants until 1570/1573.
120452 Negronfōti Place The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Nikola Stanjević became his possessions in the vicinity of Konče from the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He erected the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče (kako poiska na carьstvě mi mnogovьzljublenni vlastelinь i brat carьstva mi veliki vojevoda Nikola, kako da priloži i da mu potpiše carьstvo mi materi Bōžijei hilandarьskōi crьkьvь u Kon’či Svetago Stěfana što si jestь sьzidalь svoimь trudōm i ōtkupumь u svojei baštině zapisanoi, što mu jestь zapisalь i utvrьdilь roditelь carьstva mi, u baštinu do věki, svetopočivьši carь). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with thе villagе of Negronfōti (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana. Selo Konča, selo Lubnica, selo Trěskavьcь, selo Suhi Dolь, selo Dědino, selo Rakitьcь, selo Sěništa, selo gde jestь sědel Dobroslavь Karbikь, selo polь Tudōrice, selo Kostadinci, selo gde je sědelь Kostadinь, sselo Negronfōti, selo Grkovь Dolь, selo Sveti Kostadinь, i sela ina koja se nahode u meteseh kōnčkihь, mala, golěma kude jestь posadilь vojevoda ōtroke svoje.

10885 Nerašta Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos donated in ca. 1299/1300 the village of Nerašta to the Monastery of Saint Nikita (χωρίον διακείμενον περὶ τὸν Πόλογον καὶ ἐπιλεγόμενον Νεράσταν). ------------------------ In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin - in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective village is confirmed (I u Polozě selo Nerašta s pravinami jegō).
112753 Nerodimlja Place On 14 August 1332 (?) the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for Dubrovnik in the palace of Nerodimlja. ------------ Before 8 August 1339 King Stefan Dušan issued a charter for Dubrovnik in Nerodimlja. ------------ On 10 September 1340 King Stefan Dušan enacted a charter for Dubrovnik in Nerodimlja. ------------- Between April 1346 and December 1355 (1351?) the Serbian Emperor Stefan Dušan issued a charter for the town of Kotor in Nerodimlja.
17908 Nerězi Place The Inscription preserved on the marble architrave above the main entrance into the naos of Nerězi informs us, that the church in Nerězi was dedicated to St. Panteleimon and decorated at the expense of Alexios Angelos Komnenos in September of the thirteenth indiction of the year 1164, when the hegumenos was the monk Ioannikos (Ἐκαλλιεργήθη ὁ ναὸς τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ ἐνδόξου μεγαλομάρτυρος Παντελεήμονος ἐκ συνδρομῆς κυροῦ Ἀλεξίου τοῦ Κομνηνοῦ καὶ υἱοῦ τῆς πορφυρογεννήτης κυρᾶς Θεοδώρας μηνὶ Σεπτεμβρίῳ ἰνδικτιῶνος ῖγ ἔτους ΣΧΟΓ ἡγουμενεύοντος Ἰωαννικίου μοναχοῦ). The village Vodno donated by the king Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg formed a communal unit with the village of Nerězi and shared together the vineyards, the fields, the watermills, the hay harvests, the hunting and fishing grounds, meadows and all rights (Edno bo jestь selo Vodno i Nerězi sь vinogradi, sь nivijemь, sь voděničijemь, sь sěnokosi, sь lovišti zvěrnimi i sь ribnimi, sь zaběli i sь vsěmi pravinami ihь). These church properties in Vodno and Nerězi were administred as pronoia ( Takožde i po vsěhь selěhь crьkьvnihь vo Vodně i v Nerězihь, ponieže crьkovna pronija jestь, a ne ničija baština).
123833 Neōhorь Place The Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) donated the village Neōhorь on the plain of Mavrovo with all boundaries and rights to the Monastery of Kutlumus. The monastery obtained all estates, which were in possession of Theōdorь Ōduevikь. The community of monks on the Mount Athos received also pronoia holders with people, land parcels and fruit trees, which were in some way dependent upon Kalabaris (Kalavar) (selo u poli Mavrovьskom imenem Neōhorь sь vsemi megami i s pravinami sela togai, sь vsemь što e drьžalь Theōdorь Ōduevikь pri carstvě mi, i pri Kalavari proniari što su drьžali ili ljudi ili vokie sь vsem periorom sela). The village of Neōhorь is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Strumica in the year 1519, 1530/1531 and in 1570/1573 as Deli Orman or Dobrova.
11137 Nikiforovec Place Nikiforovec is mentioned several times in the Land Inventory Brebion. A certain Vladimir donated a field in Nikiforovec to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the right to have a grave (288, art. 31: Niva u Nikiforovci što dade Vladimirь za grobь, nizь Sopotnikovu nivu I do Kraseve ōd Želina). The Land Inventory Brebion contains also evidence on a field not far from Nikiforovec above Sredorek, which was bought by the monastery from Gjuroj for a horse (288, art. 38: Niva u Nikiforovci nad Srědorěkomь kuplena ōtь Gjuroja za konь). The grandson of Krasev, a certain Dmitr from Želino, donated the field Trstěnica in Nikiforovec with the meadow near to the field Vladimir to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the right have a grave and for his tonsure as monk (293, art. 53: Niva Trьstěnica u Nikiforov᾿ci i s livadomь blizь Vladimirove nive, što jestь dalь Krasevь unukь, Dmitrь ōtь Želina, za grobь i za postrigь). A certain Strezo donated his field to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo, and the Land Inventory Brebion gives a careful delimitation of its boundaries (295, art. 59: Niva što priloži Strězo u Nikiforov᾿ci ōd Topila do Klěna I do Sopotnikove nive I do popa Vladove kuplenice, i uz livadu crьkvu i do kneževe nive). The Land Inventory Brebion contains evidence on the acquisition of a field in Nikiforovec, which was bought from Theodor and his daughter Jelena to some extent by the abbot (hegumen) Theoktist and the rest by the bishop Ignatij (296, art. 64: Niva u Nikiforovci, uzь crьkvnu nivu što kupi igumьnь Theōktistь u Theōdore i u čtere Jelene za 10 perperь, a dokupi piskopь Ignatije i zapisa). According to the Brebion an Oikonomos of the Monastery Mathei had bought an estate near Nikiforovec from Mišat, who came from the village of Mel (296, art. 67: I dva komata nive što kupi ikonomь Mathei u Mišata ōd Mela, za 12 perper, jedna…, a druga u Nikiforovci do Budriga i do puti prěmo Klenu i do Gumništ). ---------------------- The Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the village of Mlačice to the Monastery of Hilandar. The General Charter describes the boundaries of the village of Mlačice with its land and mentions Nikiforec (Mlačice sь zemlomь, što je dalь svety kralь; a megja zemli toi ōdь Nikiforca kako grede putь na ōpogorь prězь livadu u Kraljevu Pekь i u Bivolь Brodь).
120531 Novakovo selište Place The land inventory of the Church of Saint Stephen in Konče, which was created after the church became a possession of the Hilandar on Mount Athos, mentions the apparently abandoned settlement site of Novak (selište Novakovo ōtročko ōsvěnь Trěskavca prěma jezu što je s one strane Lukavice ōd g…..a Radeša u Lukavice do klisure i do Lukavice tozi je bilo vse Novakovo, razve na tomьzi poli paričьko).
116426 Novo Brdo Place On 20 September 1349 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued charters for Dubrovnik in Novo Brdo.
19525 Novoseljanь Place The village Novoseljanь appears in the boundary description of the village Globica, which has been preserved in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (ōtь Novoseljanь drumomь na Vrьbicu i po kolniku na Gabrovo k Raičanomь i kolnikomь nadь Bunašь).
130358 Novoseljanь, Road, drum Place A road between Novoseljanь and Vrьbica is mentioned in the foundation charter of the Bishopric of Zletovo, which was issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) in 1346/47 (otь Novoseljanь drumomь na Vrьbicu).
1379 Něgiga Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated a field near Něgiga to the Monastery of Treskavec. The type as well as the location of the place is unknown, but it was problably a settlement or village (Niva nad neju kьblomь .з. pri Něgygu; i do togo putě niva na selišti kьblom .d. plisijastь Něgiga).
120964 Něžičino Place Boroslavь, the lord of the village Něžičino was in conflict with the Hilandar Monastery because of the boundary between the villages Boruevo and Něžičino. A commision, consisting of Čelnik Terijan, Stanko, the Pristav of the kefalija of Strumica and four Elders, determinated before 1375/1376 the boundary between both possessions (da ukažu zemli meždu Boruevom i meždu Něžičinom, i o čim' se svagja Hilandarь i Boroslavь gospodar Nežič'ki).
122234 Oblovъ Place The Saint Gabriel of Lesnovo escaped from Lukovo and found refuge in the mountains, where he stayed on the mountain top Oblovъ (verhъ Ōblovъ). His relics were found there and brought to the Monastery of Lesnovo. From a toponomastic point of view, it is noteworthy that in the Life of the Saint also a greek variant (στρογγύλος) of the slavic toponym is used (verhъ Ōblovъ, jakože skazaet sja grečeski Strongilo). Both expressions can be translated as "round", "rounded", "spherical“.
120784 Odreno, Local Road, drum Place In the border description of the village of Psača in a charter, which was issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355), a local road is mentioned (niz drumь kako spada posrěd golěmoga odrьna).
11014 Odri Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the village of Odri in Polog with the church of Sveti Dmitrij, people, summer pasture, all boundaries and rights to the Monastery of Gračanica.

20543 Odri, Church of Sveti Dmitrij Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the village of Odri in Polog with the church of Sveti Dmitrij, people, summer pasture, all boundaries and rights to the Monastery of Gračanica. These properties were given to the monastery within the scope of an exchange of property between Gračanica and the Bishopric of Debar (I Bane u Suhogrьlě koi běhu takožde upisani vь ōtčině mi hrisovulě, i vzehь i dahь Svetomu Nikolě jepiskuplii dьbrьskoi, a za ne dahь zaměnu Svety Bogorodici gradčanьskoi u Polozě Ōdri crьkьovь Svetago Dmitrija sь ljudmi i sь planinomь, i sь vse mi megjami pravi mi koako si je imalo se to ōd iskoni).
20537 Odri, Summer Pasture Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the village of Odri in Polog with the church of Svety Dmitrij, people, summer pasture, all boundaries and rights to the Monastery of Gračanica. These properties were given to the monastery within the scope of an exchange of property between Gračanica and the Bishopric of Debar (I Bane u Suhogrьlě koi běhu takožde upisani vь ōtčině mi hrisovulě, i vzehь i dahь Svetomu Nikolě jepiskuplii dьbrьskoi, a za ne dahь zaměnu Svety Bogorodici gradčanьskoi u Polozě Ōdri crьkьovь Svetago Dmitrija sь ljudmi i sь planinomь, i sь vse mi megjami pravi mi koako si je imalo se to ōd iskoni).
117404 Orahь Place The village of Orahь appears in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. It is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
11139 Oraša Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion a certain Branislav donated an estate near Oraša underneath the road to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the sake of his salvation (I drugi komatь u Ōraši pod putemь, što jestь dalь Branislavь za dušu).
119930 Orašacъ Place The village of Orašacъ is mentioned in the Vuneški pomenik (15th century or 16-17th centuries).
122221 Osiče Place Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski came, according to his detailed Vita, from a rich family in Osečko pole (ōt strani Ōsečkōmъ pole, roditelemь bogatu sělo i blagočestivu). After a vision he built a Church of the Nativity of the Holy Mother of God with the funding of his parents on the field of Osiče (na pole Ōsiče). The secondary literature identifies Osečko pole with the current village of Osiče. The expression "pole" ("polje"), which means "field", "open area" or "plain", might indicate that Osiče was a scattered settlement.
122859 Osmir Dolě Place A certain priest named Theōdorь came after the death of Saint Joakim Osogovski (approximately 1105?) during the reign of the Byzantine emperor Manuel I Komnenos (reigned 1143–1180) from the village of Osmir Dolě in Ovče Pole to Sarandaporь (Vъ dni tie běše ierei imenemь Theōdorь vь stranah Ovčepolьskyh. Vь vsi zovoměi Osmir dolě). He was led by the divine inspiration and went with the blessing of the saint. The author of the Life of Saint Joakim Osogovski connects Osmir Dolě with Ovče Pole, but his opinion is incorrect. Rather, Osmir Dolě, is to be sought near Kočani.
121548 Ovče Pole Place The Bulgarian Khan Boris built in the 9th century churches in Ovče Pole according to a Bulgarian chronicle (i na rěcě Brěgalnici, i tu prïemь carьstvo; na Ovči poli sьzda běli crьkvi). The Vita of Saint Prohor Pčinjski (11th century) gives account about Prohor, who came from a village in Ovče Pole (ōt vesї ovčopolskija). The disarmed Pechenegs were, according to Ioannes Skylitzes, settled on the plains of Ovče Pole in the first half of the 11th century (ἀνά τε τὰς πεδιάδας τῆς Σαρδικῆς, τῆς Ναϊσσοῦ καὶ τῆς Εὐτζαπόλεως διασπείρας πάντας καὶ πᾶν ὅπλον ἀφελόμενος διὰ τὸ ἀνεπιβούλευτον). The Nicene Empire conquered in 1246 parts of Macedonia, including Ovče Pole (Νευστάπολίς). Nine years later, in 1255, the Byzantine Emperor Theodoros II. Laskaris led his army through the Ovče Pole (διὰ τῆς Νευσταπόλεως), which was a waterless and houseless area (ἄνυδρος δέ ἐστιν ὁ τόπος καὶ ἄοικος καὶ πλήθει στρατευμάτων δυσβάδιστος). Ephraim (ἅμ’ Εὐτζαπόλει, resp. διὰ Ναυτζαπόλεως ἀνύδρου τόπου) and also Theodoros Skutariotes (Νευστάπολίς, resp. διὰ τῆς Νευσταπόλεως) describe both conquests. Ovče Pole (Ovьče Polje) was incorporated in the Serbian dominion under the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin in 1282/83. A poem in honor of the Byzantine general Michael Dukas Glabas Tarchaneiotes, which is the work of the Byzantine writer Manuel Philes (13th/14th c.), mentions amongst others the Byzantine conquest of Ovče Pole (Εὐτζάπολιν δὲ συλλαβὼν Μοροβίσδου, Σκόπιά τε Σθλάβιτζαν ἐξ εὐανδρίας, Καὶ τὸν Πίαντζον καὶ τὸ περὶ τὸν Στρόμον, Καὶ τὸν περὶ Στρούμμιτζαν ἄφθονον τόπον). The region (strana) of Ovče Pole (i Ōvčepolsku) is attested in the interpolated charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Hilandar Monastery from the year 1303/1304 (or after 1331?). The byzantine-serbian border in Macedonia became the central subject of negotiations in 1308 between the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Charles de Valois, when the latter sought to conquer the Byzantine Empire. The area of Ovče Pole (et contrata Ouciepoullie) should remain according to the treaty in the Serbian kingdom. The Serbian annals give account about the miraculous epiphany of the Saint Nicholas to the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Ovče Pole, where the saint healed the blindness of the king (et cum fuisset in Ovczepolye, in templo S. Nicolai). The same miracle is attested in the Vita of Stefan Dečanski, which was written by Grigorij Camblak (15th century; polje ovčee imenuemo). In 1330 the scribe Stanislav finished a Slavonic manuscript in the domain of Ovče Pole in the region of Zletovo on the mountains of Lěsnovo in the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael (vь ōblasti ōvčepolьskoi vь horě zletovstěi, vь gorě lěsnovьstěi, vь monastiri stgo arhistratiga Mihaila). The same notice in the manuscript mentions that the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski took control over Ovče Pole (i ōvčepolьsko). In the charter of Stefan Dečanski for the Monastery of Saint Nikola Mrački (Pešterski manastir) from the year 1330 appears the term zemli Ovčepolьskoi. From the slavic colophon of the scribe Stanislav in the Menaion of the Serbian Despot Jovan Oliver for the Monastery of the Saint Archangel Michael in Lesnovo from the 1342 results, that Jovan Oliver ruled at that time over the entire area of Ovče Pole (ōblastiju vseju ōvčepolьskoju). The Serbian Emperor mentions Ovče Pole (na Ovči Poli) in his charter for the Monastery of the Saint Archangels Michael and Gabriel near Prizren. The monks of the Hilandar Monastery complained in 1355 to the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan about the border violations by the people, who lived in the villages, which belonged to Karьba (selě zem'li Kar'bin'čkoi), whereupon the governor (kefalija) of Štip named David Mihojević (poslach kjefaliju Štip'skoga Davida Michojevikja) was sent out to determine the boundaries of the monastery in this area. In the boundary description of the Hilandar Monastery near the land of Karьba also Ovče Pole is mentioned (po ōnoi straně odь Ovča Polja). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued on the 2th Mai 1355 the charter for the Hilandar Monastery in Ovče Pole (na Ovči Poli). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed on the 17th Mai 1355 at the state council (sabor) in Krupište the tenure of the Monastery of Saint Petar Koriški as metochion for the Hilandar Monastery. The charters in question were written by the Serbian Logothet Gjurg in Ovče Pole (na Ovči Poli, resp. na Ovči Polii). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued on the 2th July at the state council in Krupište the third charter for the Hilandar Monastery, which was again written by the same Serbian Logothet in Ovče Pole (na Ovči Poli). In the forged charter from the 15th century, previously referred as a document issued by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the settlement Ulijare around 1318, amongst other places also Ovče Pole is mentioned (Ōvče polje). The Serbian Despot Stefan Lazarević granted in 1408/1409 a safe conduct to the ottoman troops from the area of Toplica via Kosovo to Ovče Pole (prohode kь Ovčju polju). In spring and summer of 1413 the two Ottoman pretenders to the throne Mehmed and Musa fought for supremacy on the Balkan Peninsula. Mehmed was supported by the Serbian Despot Stefan Lazarević. In the course of the military operations, Musa initially stayed in the Ovče Pole (in the Ragusan sources called Ovcepogle). Then Mehmed and Stefan Lazarević together with their troops crossed the Črьna Gora (Prěšьdьše že Črьmnu Goru) and reached the Ovče Pole (kь Ovьčju polju), where Djuradj Branković, Stefan's nephew, took command over the Serbian contingents. The Ottoman troops plundered the region of Žegligovo and Ovče Pole in 1512 (to lěto plěniše Turci Žegligovo, Ovče Polě). Ovče Pole is registered in the Defters for the Sanjak Köstendil between the years 1570 and 1572 as a summer pasture. Ovče Pole (Ovče polje is mentioned in the Pomenik from 15th–18th century. The Serbian scribe and copyist Jerotej Račanin travelled through the Ovče Pole on his pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1704. He describes the area of Ovče Pole as beautiful, rich in fields, grain, vineyards and all kinds of fruit, with beautiful rivers and cold, pure sources, with cities and villages.
17919 Painь dolь Place In the boundary description of the village Kalugerovljane the road heading to Painь dolь is mentioned (ta na Martinь krьstь nizь Veli dělь na putь koi grede na Painь dolь).
117559 Parakastron Place The church of Saint Constantine and Helena in Ohrid owned four patches near the place Keramaria in Parakastron. This land was in the vicinity of the property of Nentzos from the east. It bordered the possessions of the archbishop from the west (ἕτερα ζαγόνια δʹ εἰς τὰ Κεραμαρία εἰς τὸ Παράκαστρον, πλησίον ἐξ ἀνατολῶν ἕως τοῦ Νήντζου καὶ ἐκ δυσμῶν τῆς ἀγιωτάτης ἀρχιεπισκοπῆς). The church was also in possession of two other patches of land in Parakastron. The land was bounded from the east by the road and from the west by the properties of the Church of the Virgin Peribleptos (ἕτερον χωράφιον δύο ζαγόνια εἰς τὸ Παράκαστρον, πλησίον ἐξ ἀνατολῶν τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ ἐκ δυσμῶμ τῆς Περιβλέπτου).
120934 Pačkovo Place Tudoricь, the inhabitant of the village Pačkovo, bore witness to the delimitation of the Hilandar’s metochion above Sekirʼnikь in the region of Strumica, which was carried out by the Čelnik Branilo at the behest of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan before 1349/1353. After Voin Radišikь and the Hilandar Monastery were in conflict because of the land in Pačkovo, the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš summoned a commision consisting of Danilь, the Bishop of Vodoča and Strumica, Grigorije, the Bishop of Banьska, Dabiživ Spandulj, the governor (kefalija) of Strumica, and Terijan, the čelnik, which deliminated before 1375/1376 its boundaries (Takožde bystь raspra prěd gospodinomь Kostadinom Hilandaranom s Voinom Radišikjemь na Pačkově o zemli crkovněi). The village Pačkovo is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Strumica in the year 1519 and 1573.
118178 Pelince Place The village of Pelince is mentioned as Pelince and Pelinci in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. It is registered as Plnč in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
118834 Pesosnetza Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Uglješa donated the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa in Melnik with its properties to the Monastery of Batopedi on Mount Athos in January 1365. On this occassion the inventory of all possessions was isssued. The inventory records a plot of land called Pesosnetza endowed by a certain Laloukeis, which was in the possession of the monastery (ἐτερα γὴ εἰς τὴν Πεσώσνητζα ὄσην δέδωκεν ὀ Λαλούκεις ἐκείνος).
117523 Pestzoi Place The Church of Saint Constantine and Helena in Ohrid possessed a plot of vineyard near Pestzoi (Peštani). This land was from the east adjacent to the property of the priest Stephanos and from the west to the possession of the Church of the Virgin Hodegetria (ἔτι δὲ κομματια αμπελον· εις τοὺς Πέτζους πλησίον ἐξ ἀνατολῶν τοῦ ἱἐρέος Στεφανοῦ ἐκ δυσμῶν της Ὁδηγήτριας). The village of Peštani is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and in the year 1583.

The village of Petrič is registered in the Defters for the Sanjak Köstendil in the year 1570/1573.
132322 Petrova reka Place The charter, which is mentioning the Petrova river, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište).
12246 Pet᾿kov krstь Place King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated lands around Pet᾿kov krьst, that came in the possession of the Monastery of Sveta Petka in Tmorane as gift for the salvation of the soul, to the monastery of Hilandar (i ōkolь Pet᾿kova krьsta zemьle zadušьne na EI. k᾿b᾿lь).

120698 Peštera Place The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš donated after 1376/1377 the village Peštera with people to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I ešte priložihь u Tikvešu Pešteru sь ljudmi).
18607 Peštno Place The hamlet Peštno is mentioned in the Slavic donor inscription of the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1340/41 as a monastic property (i zaselьk Peštno). The hamlet is also attested several times in the boundary description of the same inscription (ōd peštni pravo nizь dolь; podь peštno na dolь). Furthermore, the hamlet Peštno appears together with the village Drěvěno and the Church of Sveti Elisei near Drěvěno in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (Selo Drěvěno sь crьkviju svetago Eliseja i sь zaselkomь Peštnymь). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) with all its possessions, including the village Drěvěno and the hamlet Peštno (selo Drěvěno i sь zaselkomь Peštnōmь), to the Hilandar Monastery.
131841 Pijanьcь Place Pijanьcь was a part of Sclavinias in Macedonia, which formed a borderzone contested between the Byzantines and the Bulgarians. At the latest in 855 (perhaps already in 852?), Pijanьcь and the area around the Brěgalnica river must have fallen under the rule of the Bulgarian Khan Boris. A Bulgarian chronicle reports indirectly about this event (i na rěce Brěgalnici, i tu prïemь carьstvo. Pijanьcь is mentioned in the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Basileios II for the archiepiscopal see of Ōhrid from the year 1019 (καὶ τὴν Πιάνιτζαν). Pijanьcь was withdrawn from the sovereign authority of the Byzantine Empire in 1282/1283 during the reign of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (и Пиꙗньць). At that time it was subordinate to the Bishopric of Morozvizd (Morobisdos). A poem by the Byzantine poet Manuel Philes (13th/14th century) in honor of the Byzantine commander Michael Dukas Glabas Tarchaneiotess relates, among other things, about the conquest of Pijanьcь (Εὐτζάπολιν δὲ συλλαβὼν Μοροβίσδου, Σκόπιά τε Σθλάβιτζαν ἐξ εὐανδρίας, Καὶ τὸν Πίαντζον καὶ τὸ περὶ τὸν Στρόμον, Καὶ τὸν περὶ Στρούμμιτζαν ἄφθονον τόπον). Pijanьcь appears in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo from the year 1346/47 (u Pijanci; u Pijanci na Brěgalnici). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo with all its possessions including also Pijanьcь to the Hilandar Monastery (u Pijancu; u Pijanci na Brěgalnici). A forged charter from the 15th century, also known as the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin concerning the settlement site Ulijare settlement from 1318, relates, among other things, about the conquest of Pijanьcь by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin between the years 1282 and 1284 (Pïanьcь).
19187 Pijanьcь, Church of Sveti Nikola Place The Church Sveti Nikola in Pianitza with the village was granted in 1346/1347 to the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (crьkvь svetago Nikole sь selomь; ōtь svetago Nikole). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) with all its possessions, including the Church of Sveti Nikola (I u Pijancu crьkvь Sveti Nikola sь selōmь i sь vinogradōmь i sь voděnicami i sь lugōmь), to the Hilandar Monastery.
19201 Pijanьcь, Church of the Bogorodica Place The Church Sveta Bogorodica with its village was granted in 1346/1347 to the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (u Pijanci na Brěgalnici crьkvь Bogorodicu sь selomь). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) with all its possessions, including the Church Sveta Bogorodica, (I ōšte u Pijanci na Brěgalnici crьkvь Bogorodica sь selōmь i sь naměstijemь crьkve tei), to the Hilandar Monastery.
117649 Plavci Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the place Plavci to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid. The exact location of the topographical entity Plavci is unknown. It was probably in the vicinity of Uboro and the village Jablanica.
11016 Podbrězi Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the place of Borko near Podbrezi with a court and people to the Monastery of Gračanica. This property was given to the monastery within the scope of an exchange of property between Gračanica and the Bishopric of Debar (i Borkovo město, što se nahodi u Podьbrězěhь i dvor).
11141 Podlug Place The Land Inventory Brebion describes how a certain Savdik, since he wanted to have child, donated a field above Sveta Nedela to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo. In the field delimitation the road from Podlug, the furrow of Podlug and the boundary of Podlug are mentioned (Savdikь viděvь jere ne imamь poroda da što priložihь Materi Božije za kupь za to da ně rěči, nь davamь nivu nad Svetomь Nedelomь ōtь puti podluž᾿ka, us᾿ put měčički, i do brazde podluž᾿ke, i vinu do mege podluž᾿ke de me pomenuje crьkva).
14402 Podlěšane Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of the village of Podlěšane together with hamlets, boundaries and all rights to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55 (Selo Podlěšane s megěmi i ōtesi i sь zaselci i sь vsěmi pravinami sela togo). The village of Podlěšane was granted to the Monastery of Hilandar by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš in the year 1378/79. It is also registered as Podišani in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
117664 Podьmoli Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the settlement site Podmoli with all boundaries to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (Podьmoli selište sь vsěmi megjami).

1381 Polaticь Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated some fields near Polaticь to the Monastery in Treskavec (Niva sumegnja do Radoslava i Hitreša kьblomь .m. plisijastь Spanьdunь i do Hitreša i do selišta Polaticь/Niva pod Polaticь kьblomь .l. plisijastь Spanьdunь i do hraštanьskego putě i do Stana Vlьkana). Polaticь is mentioned a second time during a boundary description of a meadow (niva Nikiforovecь ōdь Carego Kladenьca do togo potoka i do togo i do careva druma ko ide ōdь Polaticь na Bivolь Brodь; Lucinь vinogradь podь Hraštany i sь brьdomь). -------------------------- In the year 1344/45 Polaticь was mentioned by King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the boundary description of Krьpeno (do careva druma koi ide ōtь Polaticь na Veliku).
120268 Polica Place The charter, which is mentioning the meadow Polica, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I selište Brěstokь prězь Lukavicu na Běsnu Voděnicu i Kalugerica i Police pašište sь vsěmi pravinami i megjami sel těhь). The meadow Polica is also mentioned in the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos from 1340/1341 for the Hilandar Monastery (πέραν τοῦ ἐκεῖσε ποταμοῦ, τερ ο ν ἀγρίδιον τὸ Μπροάστοτζιν, μέχρι τοῦ Ἀγρίου Νεροῦ καὶ τῆς Καλογραίας καὶ τοῦ Πολιτζοῦ). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village Brěstok, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, to the Monastery of Hilandar after May 1343 In the second variant of his charter the meadow Polica is attested in the boundary description of the village Brěstok (I po ōne strane rěke selo Brěstovica, do divije vode i do Kalugjerice i do Police).
11143 Polikratica Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion a certain Strězov, described as a Cuman, donated a field not far from Polikratica to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the sake of his salvation (Niva u Polikratice što dade Kumanь Strězovь prikiju svoju crьkvi za dušu si).
11145 Polog Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued a charter for Dubrovnik regarding Ston in Polog (A tu imь m(i)lostь učini kraljevstvo mi u Polozie vь lětoь z ō l g měseca ženvara k i v danь. A tui běhu: sveōsvešni jepiskupь prizrěnski Arsenie, kaznacь Balьdovinь, voevoda Gradisavь, županь Vratkō, knezь Grьgurь Kurjakovićь, stavilacь Miloš, vo(e)voda Deganь Manijaakь, Gradisavь Sušenica, Nikola Bučga, arhidjak Marinь Baraninь).
12802 Polog Place The Byzantine historian Anna Komnene relates that the Norman general Raoul of Pontoise conquered Skopje and Peter of Aulps took probably Lower und Upper Polog in 1082 (ἔνθέν τοι καὶ τοὺς μὲν δύο Πολόβους εὐθὺς ὁ Πέτρος τοῦ Ἀλίφα κατέσχε, τὰ δὲ Σκόπια ὁ προρρηθεὶς Πουντέσης). She reports also that Peter von Aulps was able to defend both Polog territories, despite the fact that the Bohemond's payment of soldier’s pay was delayed and the commanders received offers from the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos (καὶ τὸν τοὺς Πολόβους φυλάσσοντα Πέτρον τοῦ Ἀλίφα). As a result of Kastoria's capitulation, even Peter of Aulps, was left alone and could not hold the two Polog areas for long. He offered his services to the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos and the Byzantines became rulers of the two Polog areas again. The whole region of Polog is mentioned in a letter of Archbishop Theophylaktos of Ohrid to the governor of Dyrrhachion Ioannes Komnenos, probably written in 1090. The archbishop complains to the governor about the situation of the clergy in Polog. The Byzantine Emperor previously issued a document granting the clerics of the city of Ōhrid and its surroundings freedom from all tax burdens except the ζευγολόγιον (tax imposed on the draught cattle). According to Theophylaktos the imperial officials ignored the decree. He therefore asked the governor to write a pittakion to confirm the tax exemption. He also asked him to renew the required payments of the ἀερικόν and the ὀτρωτζίνα. The second epistle, probably written by the Archbishop between the years 1092-1097, shows that even after the governor issued his pittakion, the clerics of Polog were still forced to perform various duties and taxes. The Serbian Grand Prince (Veliki Župan) Vukan devastated in 1092 the area in the vicinity of Skopje and even conquered Polog (κᾷθ’ οὕτως τεθαρρηκὼς ὁ Βολκάνος ὡς μή τινος τοῦ ἀντικαθισταμένου περιλειφθέντος ἐληίζετο τὰς παρακειμένας πόλεις καὶ χώρας, καὶ τῶν Σκοπίων τὴν ἔξω χώραν τελείως ἠρίπωσε, τὸ δέ τι καὶ κατέκαυσεν. οὐ μέχρι δὲ τούτου, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸν Πόλοβον καταλαβὼν καὶ ἄχρι Βρανέας φθάσας καὶ δῃώσας ἅπαντα πολλὴν τὲ λείαν ἐκεῖθεν ἀφελόμενος εἰς τὴν οἰκείαν ὑπέστρεψε χώραν). The Arab geographer al-Idrisi mentions in 1153/1154 a city bearing the name of Būluġū in a description of the route from Dyrrhachion to the city of Chrysopolis in his work ῾Kitab al-Rujar. According to al-Idrisi, it was two days' journey from Ōhrid. It was on a large mountain and was said to have been beautiful. According to al-Idrisi, between Būluġū and the city of Skopje, which was located north-east of Būluġū, the traveller had to reckon with a distance of a day's journey. Although Būluġū has often been identified with some towns in Polog, the sparse data for exact localization do not suffice and it seems that al-Idrisi describes rather an administrative unit. The Serbian Grand Prince Stefan Nemanja, actually a loyal vassal of the Byzantine Empire since his deditio in 1172, risked an uprising in 1183 and was able to invade the city of Sofia/Serdica and devastate the surrounding territory with the help of the Hungarian King Béla III. Then he went alone, only with his forces and destroyed the strongholds in Velbužd, Žitomisk, Skopje, Lěšok in the lower Polog and the town of Gradac (Prišьdь bo prěpodobʼni sevty Symeōn sь ugьrьskymь kralemь i donde grada do Srědʼca rekomago i vь sʼkrušenije postavi jego i vь ōpustěnije konьčʼnoje. Vьzvraštьšou že se rizě ugьrьskomu vь svoje njemu vladičьstvo, ōn že svety ōtvraštь se ōt nego ide sь siloju svojeju na gradь Pernikь i tьь skrušivь svojeju i vь ōpustěnije i i gradь Stobь i gradь Zemlьnь i gradь Velьbluždь i gradь Žitomitьskь i gradь Skьplь i gradь Lěšьskь u Dolnemь Polozě i gradь Gradьcь). According to the Vita of him, which was written by his son Stefan the First-Crowned, Stefan Nemanja fully included not only the Lower Polog with Lěšok and Gradac, but also the Upper Polog with border areas in his dominion (Priloži že kь zemli ōtčьstvija svoigo ōblastь nyševьskuju do konca, Lypljanь že i Moravu i glagoljemy Vrani, prizrěnsku že ōblastь i Pologa ōba do konca sь megami svoimi). The area of Polog appears again several times in the document corpus of Demetrios Chomatenos. These charters give account about the situation in this administrative entity shortly after the successful conquest of Macedonia up to the city of Skopje in 1217–1219 by the Epirote ruler Theodoros I Komnenos Dukas. The widow Maria from Polog addressed the archbishop's synod due to an inheritance matter (Παρέστη ἡ ἀπὸ τοῦ Πολόγου ὁρμωμένη χήρα γυνή, ἧς τοὔνομα Μαρία). The monk Gerasimos from the Monastery of the Holy Theotokos in Htětovo and the priest Dobros, both from the village of Banista in the Upper Polog, argued over a property that was illegally confiscated in the past (Ὁ γὰρ ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἄνω Πολόγου ὁρμώμενος καὶ ἐν τῇ σεβασμίᾳ μονῇ τῆς ὑπεραγίας δεσποίνης ἡμῶν Θεοτόκου τῇ ἐν Κτεατόβῃ ἀσκούμενος μοναχὸς Γεράσιμος μετὰ τοῦ παρ’ αὐτοῦ ἐναγομένου καὶ ἐκεῖθεν ὁρμωμένου καὶ ἐν τῷ χωρίῳ Βανίστῃ οἰκοῦντος Δόβρου ἱερέως τῷ παναγιωτάτῳ ἡμῶν δεσπότῃ, τῷ ἀρχιεπισκόπῳ πάσης Βουλγαρίας, παραστάς, κατὰ τοῦ τοιούτου ἱερέως ἐνῆγε λέγων). In this context, Polog is described as χώρα. The term was used to denote the administrative unit or even a province at the time. In a bizarre divorce trial, Georgios' former wife is briefly mentioned. Georgios wanted to live with her again. Her name was Omprada and she was the daughter of a certain Radoslav from Lower Polog (Λαβὼν γυναῖκα νομίμως ἐκ πρώτου συνοικεσίου τὴν θυγατέρα τοῦ Ῥαδοσλάβου τοῦ οἰκοῦντος ἐν τῷ Κάτω Πολόγῳ, τὴν καλουμένην Ὀμπράδα). The Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen, who reigned between the years 1257-1277, confirmed in the fragmentary preserved chrysobull charter the previous possessions of the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje, which was erected by the Byzantine emperor Romanos III. Argyros. Beside the area around Skopje and Prilep, the document also explicitly mentions the dominion (oblast) of Polog. A list of donated villages in this territory follows, which included the village of Rěčice, the so-called Krajište of Lisec, the village of Lěskovljani and also the furrow near Htětovo. Then the possessions of the monastery in Upper Polog are mentioned. Unfortunately, the name of the first village has not survived, but it possessed vineyards and mills. Two other villages, Tōčilь and the village of Banica with vineyards and mills, are easily readable (Vь Položkoi ōblasti selo Rěčici, i to darovan’noje svetoïmь Romanomъ carjemь Svetōmu Geōrgiju sъ vinogradi, sь nivijemъ, i sъ žrъnъkami, sъ perivolmi, sь sěnokosi, sь zaběloï, sь planinami, sь lovištemъ zvěrnoïmъ, i sь vsěmi dohodkoï i sь vsěmi pravinami, i da ne meteha nikoi kefalija, nikōtori vladalecь carьstva mi ni vladalʼci gospodstvujaštih po carьstvu mi, da ne ima vьlěsti vь seko Rěčici, ni sjaditi, ni svjazati, ni globja vьzjati, nikōi dohodokь vьzjati, vsakoi dohōdokь i birokь zakōnʼnoii da si vʼzima crьkva· A sinor selu tōmu: ōt izvora Rěčickjaja rěkja na desnō vьzdolь..nizь brьdo na Ōslьnikь, ta na Ivanovь dolь, ta pō rovčišta, ta meždu Prěslopь a meždu Ōgraždenikь prěz brьdo na na izvorь Palʼčiškja rěkja, i nizь rěkja do Katafigь, ta vъzь brьdo na kraište kako slazi Lisecь vьs kraište Lisečkō, niz gvozdъ na studenʼčec, ta na Glьbokoi dolь, i ōt Glьboka dola.....a ōt sěverьnja...strana prězь ljagь prěko Velikja rěkja, ta nizь Velikja do Htětovьskja brazdja..... .......o na Točilь koi laz....ad...Lěskovijane......vьz brьdō do gor.... desno ..... pjatemь..

Selo Tōčilъ i planina rekōma sъ vseja pravinoja. Selo Banici sъ nivijemъ sъ vinōgradi , s žrъnkami, i sъ vsěmi pravinami). Immediately after the ruler of Nicaea, Michael Palaiologos, was elevated to the rank of Despot, he sent his brother Ioannes with a small army, which was reinforced after the Battle of Pelagonia in 1259, to reconquer the territories of Macedonia. The Byzantine historian Georgios Pachymeres describes that Ioannes also captured fortresses in Polog. Ioannes achieved this success more with his diplomatic skills than militarily, because he fought only occasionally (Τοῖς δὲ δυτικοῖς καὶ προσετετήκει· ὅθεν καὶ τὸν οἰκεῖον ἀδελφὸν Ἰωάννην, μέγαν ἔτι δομέστικον ὄντα, συνάμα πλείσταις δυνάμεσι πέμπει, ὅς, τοῖς δυτικοῖς ἐπιστάς, φοβερὸν ἔδοξε πνέειν ἐκείνοις, ἅμα μὲν τῷ θερμῷ τῆς νεότητος, ἅμα δὲ καὶ τῷ περὶ ἐκεῖνον στρατεύματι κουφιζόμενος. Καὶ ἀπτέρῳ τάχει αἱρεῖ μὲν τὸ περὶ τὰ Κάνινα φρούριον, αἱρεῖ δὲ καὶ τὸ περὶ τὰ Βελλάγραδα καὶ Πόλογον καὶ Κολώνειαν, χειροῦται δὲ καὶ Καστορίαν καὶ Πελαγονίαν καὶ Δεύρας, Τζέρνικόν τε καὶ Διάβολιν καὶ τὴν Πρίλαπον, Βοδεεινά τε καὶ Βόστρον, ἔλλιμνον νῆσον, Πέτραν, Πρέσπαν τε καὶ Στερίδολα καὶ Ἀχρίδαν καὶ τὰ Ἰλλυριῶν ὀχυρώματα, καὶ ἕως Δυρραχίου φθάνει τὸ δόρυ κινῶν· προσβάλλει δὲ καὶ Πάτρᾳ καὶ Τρίκκῃ. Καὶ τὰ κύκλῳ κατὰ συνθήκας κρατήσας, καὶ ἀμαχεὶ τὰ πλεῖστα, εἰς φόβον μέγαν καθίστησι τὸν δεσπότην καὶ ἐν στενῷ κομιδῇ. Τότε καὶ ἐγγίονος ἀξιῶν τύχης αὐτὸν πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ ὁ κρατῶν, πέμψας τὰ σύμβολα, σεβαστοκράτορα καθιστᾷ). The sources give almost no information about the Byzantine administration of Polog, except for the later Byzantine Emperor and historian Ioannes Kantakuzenos. He gives a longer account on Theodoros Synadenos, who was born around 1280. He mentions also his father, the Megas Stratopedarches Ioannes Synadenos, who administered Polog as Toparch. However, Ioannes Kantakuzenos localized Polog in the macro-region of Dalmatia, because he probably confused the broader regional designation Illyrikon with Dalmatia (ὁ δέ γε πατὴρ τοῦ πρὸς ἑσπέραν κατὰ τὴν Δαλματίαν λεγομένου Πολόγου τοπάρχης ἦν. ὁ δέ γε πατὴρ τοῦ πρὸς ἑσπέραν κατὰ τὴν Δαλματίαν λεγομένου Πολόγου τοπάρχης ἦν· ἣν δὴ τοπαρχίαν σὺν ἑαυτῷ τῷ πρώτῳ τῶν βασιλέων προσαγαγὼν Παλαιολόγῳ τῷ Μιχαὴλ καὶ ὑποχείριον ἀποδείξας αὐτῷ, τιμῶν τε ἠξιώθη μεγάλων παρὰ Ῥωμαίοις καὶ γάμου κοινωνίας ἐπιφανοῦς, τῇ βασιλέως ἀνεψιᾷ συναφθείς). Probably in 1268 or 1269 an embassy to the Serbs, consisting of the Metropolitan of Traianupolis Ioannes Kondumnes, the Patriarch of Constantinople Joseph I and the Chartophylax of Hagia Sophia Ioannes Bekkos, failed to arrange a marriage between Anna, the daughter of the Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII. Palaiologos and Milutin, the second son of the Serbian King. Georgios Pachymeres relates that the embassy also passed through Polog and gives his explanation of the Slavic name to his audience (Τῇ Πολόγῳ δὲ παραγγειλάντων, ἣν δὴ ἄλσος Θεοῦ ἐκεῖνοι κατὰ γλῶσσαν εἴπειαν). Polog was withdrawn from the sovereign authority of the Byzantine Empire in 1282/1283 during the reign of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (Prьvěje prijetь oba Pologa sь gradovy ihь i sь oblastiju, i gradь slavьnyi Skopije, po sihь že Ovьče Polje i Zletovu i Pijanьc. Takovyje vьse zemlje prijetь vь prьvoje prišьstvije jego, i priloži ihь kь drьžavě otьčьstvija svojego). In 1300, Polog is mentioned for the first time as Župa in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Monastery of Saint George Gorg near Skopje. The word župa is attested in connection with the village of Rěčice. Firstly, the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II. Milutin, as the issuer, refers to the older privileges for the monastery, including the charter of the Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen, which he confirms and therefore repeats the phrase vь ōblasti položьkoi. Only later, when he comes to the privileges of the village of Rěčice, the Serbian King mentions Župa. He freed the village of Rěčice from all works, taxes and duties, which the villagers were obliged to pay to the Governor of the Polog Župa (Selo vь ōblasti položьkoi Rěčice s popovlïani, iže jestь priložilь svety Romanь carь, prьvi ktitorь. I vidě kraljevstvo mi jako podano jestь svetymь Romanomь caremь, i svetimь kyrь-Aleksiemь caremь, i zapisano i utvrьždeno kyrь-Manoilemь caremь, kyrь-Asanōmь caremь i svetimi pravověrnimi cari i krali višepisanimi, i osvoboždeno ōtь vsěhь rabotь carьskihь i ōtь vsěhь podanьkь malihь i velikihь. Po tomužde ōbrazu i kraljevstvo mi ōsvobodi selo Rěčice ōt vsěhь rabotь carьskihь i ōt vsěhь podanьkь malihь i velikyhь. I komu se dastь župa Položʼka na državu milostiju kralievstva mi, Rěčicamь da ne ima zapovědati ni na iednu rabotu, ni na voinsku poiti, grada ne zidati ni bljusti, vinograda ne kopati, ni glasa nositi, ni provoda, ni ponosa.

The Byzantine Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos confirmed at the request of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin the possessions of the monastery of Saint Nicetas near Skopje in a chrysobull charter. The document must have been created after 1299, because the emperor addressed Stefan Uroš II Milutin as his brother and brother-in-law. The monastery owned in the region of Polog the village of Nerašta with all rights and a place called Radějevo with vineyards, mills and the courtyard, which at that time was in the hands of a certain Vratislav (ὡσαύτως δέδωκε καὶ χωρίον διακείμενον περὶ τὸν Πόλογον καὶ ἐπιλεγόμενον Νεράσταν μετὰ πάντων τῶν δικαίων αὐτοῦ, ἔτι δὲ καὶ τόπον καλούμενον τοῦ Ῥαδέα μετὰ τῶν ἐν αὐτῶ ἀμπελίων καὶ μυλοστασίων καὶ αὐλῆς, ἅπερ κατεῖχε τίς ὁ Βρατίσθλαβος). The Byzantine emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos issued in 1308 at the request of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš II Milutin a charter, in which he approved the endowment of the monastery of Saint Nicetas near Skopje to the Hrusija tower at the Hilandar monastery. The Greek original has not been preserved, only a Church Slavonic translation of the authentic document is known. The village of Nerašta and a place called Radějevo in the region Polog are attested there again (I u Polozě selo Nerašta s pravinami jegō. I drugo město narečeno Radějevo s vinogradi i s voděničijemь i s dvoromь, ježe jestь drьžalь někto Bratislavь). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirmed probably in 1303 or 1304 the possessions of the Hrusija tower at the Hilandar monastery. The authentic document is lost, the text has been preserved in four transcripts. One of the transcripts (AHS 144/146), certainly transcribed in the king’ chancery between 1310 and 1340, describes the southward expansion of the Serbian king. Polog is mentioned there as a strana (area) (I pospěšьstvovanijemь svetyju mi gdnu Simeōna i Savy, prějeh po měju Skopsku stranu i Ōvčepolsku i Položsku i Dьbrьsku i pročeje ine strane. I potomь byhь zetь blagověrnomu i samodržavnomu caru grьčьskomu kur Androniku Paleōlogu, i da mi ōnuzi zemlju u prikiju). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated in 1321 the village of Odri in Polog with the church of Sveti Dmitrij, people, summer pasture, all boundaries and rights, the place of Borko near Podbrezi with a court, people and also everything, which belonged to Borko in Ljašcje to the Monastery of Gračanica. These properties in Polog were given to the monastery within the scope of an exchange of property between Gračanica and the Bishopric of Debar (I Bane u Suhogrьlě koi běhu takožde upisani vь ōtčině mi hrisovulě, i vzehь i dahь Svetomu Nikolě jepiskuplii dьbrьskoi, a za ne dahь zaměnu Svety Bogorodici gradčanьskoi u Polozě Ōdri crьkьovь Svetago Dmitrija sь ljudmi i sь planinomь, i sь vse mi megjami pravi mi koako si je imalo se to ōd iskoni). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski confirmed between May 1324 and August 1331 the donation of his father Stefan Uroš II Milutin. The latter granted the church of Sveti Vrač(i) (the Saint Cosmas and Damian) near Potoča, located in Upper Polog, with vineyards, fields, bought estates, smallholdings given for the sake of salvation and retinue to the Bishopric of Prizren (U Gornemь Polozě crkьvь Svetyju Vračju u Potočahь, što jestь pridalь roditeь kraljevьstva mi, i s vinogradi, i s nivijemь, i s kupljenicami i zadušninami i z dvorani). Milutin granted also the property of a priest near Gjurgjevište with people, which lived there, to the Bishopric of Prizren (I stasь popovska u Gjurjevištih i s ljudmi koi sěde na njei, što jestь pridalь roditelь kraljevьstva mi sь arhiepiskopomь Savomь i sь arhiepiskopomь svetymь Nikodimomь, da su crьkovny). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski donated the Church of the Holy Mother of God located in Lower Polog near Lešok and and three estates of the priest not far away, which were known as bishop’s court since time immemorial, to the bishopric of Prizren (I tako i u Dolnijemь Polozě u Lěšcě crkьvь svetyje bogorodice i pri njei tri stasi popovske što se zove dvorь piskopovь ōtь věka, da jestь svobodno ōt vsěhь rabotь kraljevьstva mi i podanьkь, kako je i ōtь isprьva bylo). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski confirmed the possession of fields near the Church of Holy Mother of God at Trhalě not far from Treboš, which had previously been taken by the people of Polog, to the Bishopric of Prizren. His father, King Milutin, together with the Bishops Damjan and Ilija took the fields from Žegr and they set his houses on fire. But the situation was resolved in its entirety only in the time of King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski. Stefan Uroš III Dečanski engaged the royal court and sent his royal representatives (Despot Dragoslav and Bishop Arsenij) personally to this area. After their inspection the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski reinstated the situation „as it was before“ (I u Trěboši pri crьkvi svetyje bogorodice pri Trьhalě nivije crьkovno što bylo ōt věka. I uzeli jesu byli Položani, i iznašьlь je roditelь kraljevьstva mi sь jepiskopomь Damijanomь i sь iepiskopomь Iliōmь, i ōtjelь ōt Žegra, i kušte mu popalilь; i pakь posla kraljevьstvo mi despota Dragoslava sь jepiskopomь Arsenijemь da ihь iznadju, da si je ima sveta crьkvi kako je isprьva bylo). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued on 22 January 1333 a charter for Dubrovnik in the region of Polog (A tu imь milostь učini kraljevstvo mi u Polozie vь lětoь 6833 měseca ženvara 22 danь). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in 1334/1335 the donation of his grandfather to the Treskavec Monastery regarding the village Krьpenь in the Region of Polog probably with the Metochion of Saint Nicholas, vineyards, field, summer pastures and all rights (U Polozě metohь Krьpenь sь voděničjemь i sь vinogradi i sь nivijemь i sь planinami i sь vsěmi pravinami jego, što priloži svetopočivšii kralь za dušu si). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan together with his son, the Young King Uroš, issued most likely in the summer of 1343 a charter for the Monastery of Holy Mother of God in Htětovo, after he had found it devastated and without possessions. The explicit choice of words in the arenga suggests that the Serbian king was personally present in the region of Polog. The administrative unit Polog is denotated in the charter as zemlja (country) and is perceived as an integral part of the Serbian kingdom (prědaju vь ōblasti kraljevʼstva mi zemlju Položʼkuju). The Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated in 1347 the village of Selce in Polog with Veli Vrh, hamlets, vineyards and all rights to the Monastery of the Holy Archangels in Prizren (selo u Polozě Selce, i s Velimь Vrьhomь, i sь zaselki, i s vinogrady, i sь vsěmi pravinami, a megja mu sь Htětovomь na Črьni Dolь i prěko za Veli Vrьhь na Stražišta, i ōtь tudu prěko do Dola Velijega na Bajevь Kamy, i megja s Porojemь po dělu uzь Vlaku tere na Planincu, a s Hraštani ōtь Sopotca uz brьdo na Dupnii Kamy; i megja z Garani po vodovagi na Dobri Studen᾿cь ta na Uši, i na Črьni Vrьhь, i niz brьdo na rěku, i niz řeku gdě se obě rěcě stajeta pod Brodcem, i megja Světcomь uz rěku na Srědnju Planinu, i uz brьdo Planine po dělu na Bělьmužьcь, i planina Ranestьcь). The charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of the Holy Archangels reveals also details about Polog's western border. The border between Krstac and Polog is mentioned in the boundary description of the summer pasture in Sinjavica (I planina Sinjavica i z Bilijanicom, i niže Sinjavice Romanь Dolь, kako pohodi nadь krai, i ōt kraja pravo u vrьhь Ranetьcь: dotezi megja Krьstьcu ōt Pologa). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in 1348 the possessions of the Hilandar Monastery. His deed distinguishes between possessions of the monastery in Serbian land and in Romania (also zemlja grečečska). The estates in Polog are the last in the list of the mentioned possessions, which belonged to the Hilandar Monastery in in the Serbian land. Among them are the former properties of the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Htětovo in Broděc, Drěnovec, Hraštany, Htětovo, Jadovarce, Mlačice, Sedlarevo, Staro Želynje, Štenče, Sedlarevo and a new endowment in Izbice. The Serbian emperor donated the village Štenče with Vlьkovnō in the Upper Polog, that appears in this document for the first time, to the Hilandar Monastery (U Polozě crьkvь Mati Božia Htětovska i sь seli. I vь Jadovarcehь crьkvь Svety Nikolae, što priloži carьstvo mi Bogorodici Htětovskoi popa Draju i sь rodōmь i sь městomь i sь megjami i sь vsěmi pravinami. Mlačice sь zemlomь, što je dalь svety kralь; a mega zemli toi ōdь Nikiforca kako grede putь na ōpogorь prěz livadu u Kraljevu pekь i u Bivolь Brodь. I Staroga Želina polovina sь megjami i sь crьkoviju. Selo Htětovo i Hraštani, Mlačice i sь zemlōmь. Selo Drěnovьcь, Brodьcь, Sedlarevo i sь Izbicami. I u Gornjemь Polozě selo Štenʼče, i sь Vlьkovnōmь). The founder and funerary inscription of Abbot Ioanikij, probably made between the years 1346 and 1355, gives account about the appointment of Ioanikij as Bishop of the Lower Polog after the Skopje assembly in 1346. Although the inscription mentions only one bishop of the Lower Polog , sources from the 16th century suggest that Polog was a singular church district, not divided in two units (i prizva patriarha blьgarskago i arhiepiskupa srьbskago iōanikija i stvori zborь u skopi i blagosloviše ego na carьski sanь i bystь prvonastolny carь srbskoi zemli i grčkoi i pomorskoi arhiepiskupa iōanikija blagosloviše na patriarhiju srbskoi zemli vь to carstvo blagosloviše anьtonija na episkupstvo dolnemu pologu prvonastolna po izvoleniju božiju prětvoriše ime jemu iōanikie poneže něe bilo prěge episkupь polozě).
121098 Pološko Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated in February 1340 upon request of Despotissa Maria the Church of Saint George in Pološko to the Hilandar Monastery. The monastery was endowed with the village Pološko. The donation of the king comprised also of hamlets, mills, hay harvests and all rights of the village (selo Pološko s megami i sь zaselci i s mliny i sь sěnokosi i sь vsěmi pravinami sela toga). The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš donated after 1376/1377 the Church of Saint George in Pološko and the village Pološko to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I ešte priložihь u Tikvešu... i nadь gradomь crьkovь Svety Georgie Položky na rěcě Črьnoi sь sely: selo Pološko). The village Pološko is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Tikveš in the years 1519 and 1573.
117331 Poneš Place Poneš was visited by the traveller Benedikt Kuripešič in 1531.
120194 Porodemos Place The village of Porodemos is mentioned twice in the fragment of the Praktikon from 1320 listing the holdings of the Iberon Monastery in Palaiokastron (Veljusa) and its surroundings (εἰς τὸν Πορό̣δημον). The village of Porodemos is registered in the Defters for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1570 to 1573 as mezra Porodim.
11030 Poroj Place The boundaries of Zlovadnica, registered as a possession of the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo, are marked by the old furrow and the road from Poroj (287, 22: Niva Zlovadnica…nad Trěbošomь…A mega nivě toi do stare brazde i do poroiska puti). ----------------------- The Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the village of Selce in Polog with Veli Vrh, hamlets, vineyard and all rights to the Monastery of the Holy Archangels in Prizren. In the delimitation of Selce the village of Poroj is mentioned (selo u Polozě Selce, i s Velimь Vrьhomь, i sь zaselki, i s vinogrady, i sь vsěmi pravinami, a megja mu sь Htětovomь na Črьni Dolь i prěko za Veli Vrьhь na Stražišta, i ōtь tudu prěko do Dola Velijega na Bajevь Kamy, i megja s Porojemь po dělu uzь Vlaku tere na Planincu, a s Hraštani ōtь Sopotca uz brьdo na Dupnii Kamy; i megja z Garani po vodovagi na Dobri Studen᾿cь ta na Uši, i na Črьni Vrьhь, i niz brьdo na rěku, i niz řeku gdě se obě rěcě stajeta pod Brodcem, i megja Světcomь [auch Slaveva sic!] uz rěku na Srědnju Planinu, i uz brьdo Planine po dělu na Bělьmužьcь, i planina Ranestьcь).
14039 Porěčie Place Most likely in the period between 1282 and 1284 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin captured in his huge offensive against Byzantine Macedonia also the land of Porěčie (porečьskuju zemlju takožde sь gradovy i oblastiju ihь). In the charter of the same King for the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje from 1300 the "oblast Porěčka" is mentioned (vь ōblasti Porěčkoi). In a document (forgery?), allegedly issued by Stefan Uroš II Milutin in the year 1318 (?) or compiled in the 15th century, Porěčie is called "zemlja Porečka". Porěčie appears in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of Treskavec in 1334/35 (u Porěči). The same ruler also mentions Porěčie in his second charter for the Monastery of Treskavac from the years 1343/44 (u Porěči) and in the third charter for the same monastery from the year 1344/45 (u Porěči).
10994 Potoča Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski confirmed the donation of his father Stefan Uroš II Milutin.

18404 Prьvevo Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of the settlement site of Prьvevo to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55 (Selište Prьvevo). The exact location of the settlement site is unknown, but was probably situated on the basis of the written sources in the Skopska Crna Gora.
121149 Prьvince Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with the village of Prьvince. He donated it to the Monastery of Hilandar together with all its rights, its hillock and summer pasture (selo Prьvin’ce sь vsěmi pravinami i sь ōbrьšijemь i sь planinōmь).
130326 Prьčevo Place The village Prьčevo appears in the boundary description of the village Globica, which has been preserved in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (i Prьčevo).

In the border description of Psača the rivers Moštanica and Lukavica and the topographical entity Golěm Ōdrьn are mentioned (Psačju sь vsěmi pravinami, a megja sela togo Moštanica kako pripada u rěku Lukavicu i do gde se izovrьša Moštanica i povrьhʼ planine nizʼ drumь kako spada posrěd golěmoga ōdrьna). Psača is registered as Starče, Psarče and Ipsarča in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572.
118831 Psesta Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Uglješa donated the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa in Melnik with its properties to the Monastery of Batopedi on Mount Athos in January 1365. On this occassion the inventory of all possessions was isssued. The inventory records 40 modioi of land in a plot called Psesta, which was in the possession of the monastery (γὴν εἰς τοῦ Ψέστα μοδίων τεσαράκοντα).
118180 Puzalka Place The village of Puzalka is mentioned in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. It is registered as Buzalika in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
120120 Pčina Place The ancient name of the river Pčina is unknown. It is the left tributary of the river Vardar. The Pčina rises in the mountain range Dukat in the Republic of Serbia at 1,660 m above sea level. The river flows into the river Vardar at the Taorska Klisura at 191 m above sea level. The mountains of Kozjak and German (Djerman) separate the upper reaches of the river Pčina in Žegligovo in the North from Slavište in the South. The river Pčinja is 136,6 km long. The village of Pšinja was named after the river Pčina. The river is mentioned for the first time in the Vitae of the Saints Prohor Pčinjski (11th century; na rece Pčine) and Joakim Osogovski (12th century; na rěcě Pšinja). It appears also in the boundary description of the village of Kalugerovljane in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) for the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Kalugerovljane nad Pšinom). The river is attested in the same charter in the context of the delimitation of the village of Dubravica and the Emperor's road, which was located nearby (i do druma careva koi grede na Pšinju). The Pčina is named on several occasions in the charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Church of Saint Nikola near Kožle in 1352/53 (v městě naricajeměmь na Pšini podь Kozljemь; i sego božьstvьnago hrama svetago Nikoli na Pšini podь Kožljemь; ōtь broda pšinskoga podь gradomь; i ōtь Grьličina Kamena vse nizь Pšinju do Ratilьca, i ōtь Ratilьca prěko u Veliku, i paky ōtь togažde broda pšinskoga; kako Cerovi Potokь opada u Pšiniju, i nizь Pšinju prěma Bělomь Kamenu; i ōtь měla strьmo u Pšinju, i vse nizь Pšinju; i potokomь Cerovimь u Pьšinju; crьkov; svetago Nikoli na Pšini podь Kožljemь).
120126 Pšinja Place The village of Pšinja was named after the river Pčina. The village is probably attested in the boundary description of the village of Kolicko in 1354/55 (u pšinьski sinorь). This evidence in the charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica may also be a hint to the river Pčina itself, and not to a settlement. Both interpretations seem to be viable. The village of Pšinja is mentioned in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. It is registered as Ipšinja in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
120215 Radanje Place The boundary of the possesion of Radan is mentioned in the boundary description of the village Karbinci (do Radn’ske megje). At that time, a village name after him probably already existed. The village Karbinci and the land of Kar’ba were subject of dispute between the monks of the Hilandar Monastery and the guards of the emperor. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV sent David Mihojević, the kefalija (governor) of Štip, in order to determine the boundaries of the disputed land. The Serbian emperor issued on 8th of June 1355 a chrysobull charter. He confirmed the right of the Hilandar Monastery over the village and the land with the boundaries determined by David Mihojević. In the charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš from 1388/1389 concerning the endowment of the Duke Dmitrь for the Hilandar Monastery is the village Radanje attested in the boundary description of the village Kozijak (A se megja sela toga Kozijaka: ... tako i po hridu megju Kozijakomь i megju Radanōmь na uši Krivi Dolь).
120533 Radeš Place The land inventory of the Church of Saint Stephen in Konče, which was created after the church became a possession of the Hilandar on Mount Athos, mentions the village of Radeš (selište Novakovo ōtročko ōsvěnь Trěskavca prěma jezu što je s one strane Lukavice ōd g…..a Radeša u Lukavice do klisure i do Lukavice tozi je bilo vse Novakovo, razve na tomьzi poli paričьko). The village of Radeš is registered in the Defters for the Nahiya Strumica in 1519 and in 1573.
121155 Radibužda Gornja Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with the village of Radibužda Gornja. He donated it to the Monastery of Hilandar together with hillocks and a summer pasture (selo Radibuždu Gornju sь ōbrьšinami i s planinōmь). The village of Radibužda Gornja is registered as Radibožde and Dolno Radibožde in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
117620 Radohožda Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village Radohožda with hamlets, hunting grounds, summer pastures and all rights to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (Selo Radohožda zaselci i s lovištami i s planinami i sь vsěmi pravinami). The village of Radohožda is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Ohrid from the year 1536 to 1539 and under the year 1583.
113501 Radovište Place The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos confirmed in August 1323 that Ioannes Sguros Orestes is the owner of Tzykalas and Branas with proprietary possession in Radovište. Both were previously held by the Sebastos Palates, who gave them to his son-in-law as dowry (ἀλλὰ δὴ καὶ εἰς τὸ Ῥαδοβίσδιν ἀνθρώπους δύο ἐνυποστάτους, τόν τε Βρανᾶν καὶ τὸν Τζυκαλ(ᾶν), οὓς εἶχεν ὁ πενθερὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ σεβαστὸς ὁ Παλάτης ἐκεῖνος διὰ χρυσοβούλλου καὶ ἐπροικοδοτήθησαν τούτω παρ’ αὐτοῦ). Between 1349 and 1353 the Logothet Gjurgь of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) wrote a Prostagma in Radovište (u Radovištichь) at the behest of the Emperor, which confirmed the landed property of the Monastery of Chilandar in the valley of the river Strumica.
117632 Radovlište Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the Church of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Radovlište with bought properties and all rights to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (U Radovlištehь crьkva svetaa Bogorodica s kupeničjemь i sь vsěmi pravinami). The village of Radovlište is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583.
11018 Radějevo Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos donated in ca. 1299/1300 the village of Radějevo to the Monastery of Saint Nikita (τόπον καλούμενον τοῦ Ῥαδέα). ------------------------ In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin - in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective village is confirmed (I drugo město nareč(e)no Radějevo).
130335 Raičani Place The village Raičani appears in the boundary description of the village Globica, which has been preserved in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (ōtь Novoseljanь drumomь na Vrьbicu i po kolniku na Gabrovo k Raičanomь i kolnikomь nadь Bunašь).
130366 Raičani, Major Road, kolnik Place A major road (kolnik) between Raičani and Bunašь is mentioned in the foundation charter of the Bishopric of Zletovo, which was issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) in 1346/47 (po kolniku na Gabrovo k' Raičanomь i kolnikomь nadь Bunašь).
131368 Rajanovo selište Place The Duke Dmitrь got the village Rurakь as his inherited property from the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for his loyal service (Iako istini i vьsesrьdьčni surodnikь i brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь k věčnomu Tvorьcu i nekonьčavajemu i nemimohodimu i vьsa mira sego ni vь čto že vьměni i vladicě svojemu Hristu priveza se. I sela iže jestь iznašьlь brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь, iže mu jestь darovalo gospodstvo mi za jegovo pravověrno porabotanie). He donated the village with all boundaries to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš confirmed the endowment of Duke Dmitrь in the charter from 1388/1389. The settlement site of Rajanь, which was settled by Rajanь and some bee-keepers, is mentioned in the boundary description of the village Rurakь (I selo Rurakь i togai sela ōtesь... ako i prěko na Rajanovo selište gde sěde ulijarci sь Rajanomь i sь mlini sela toga i s <...>).
120440 Rakitьcь Place The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Nikola Stanjević became his possessions in the vicinity of Konče from the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He erected the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče (kako poiska na carьstvě mi mnogovьzljublenni vlastelinь i brat carьstva mi veliki vojevoda Nikola, kako da priloži i da mu potpiše carьstvo mi materi Bōžijei hilandarьskōi crьkьvь u Kon’či Svetago Stěfana što si jestь sьzidalь svoimь trudōm i ōtkupumь u svojei baštině zapisanoi, što mu jestь zapisalь i utvrьdilь roditelь carьstva mi, u baštinu do věki, svetopočivьši carь). The Serbian Emperor Stefan V Uroš realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with the villagе Rakitьcь (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana.

The village of Rakitьcь is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Strumica in 1519 and 1573 as Rakitec.
122240 Rataica Place The Saint Gabriel of Lesnovo came according to his Vita to Mihail’s aid, who was a Bulgarian local prince. The saint supported him in the fight against the Pechenegs and Cumans. Mihail had to flee from his opponents to Ratkovica (vo stranu Ratkovicu). He was able with the assistance of the saint to sidle up to the opposing general Mavragan near Rataica in Zletovo (u Slětovo) and kill him (u Rataicě i ubi Mavragana).
122237 Ratkovica Place The Saint Gabriel of Lesnovo came according to the Vita of him to Mihail’s aid, who was a Bulgarian local prince. The saint supported him in the fight against the Pechenegs and Cumans. Mihail had to flee from his opponents to Ratkovica (vo stranu Ratkovicu). He was able with the assistance of the saint to sidle up to the opposing general Mavragan near Rataica in Zletovo (u Slětovo) and to kill him (u Rataicě i ubi Mavragana).
117806 Ravne Place The main copyists of the Bologna Psalter Jōsif and Tihotja wrote the manuscript in the village Ravne near Ōhrid during the reign of the Bulgarian Emperor Ivan II. Asen (Poměni gi raba svoja Iōsifa and Tihotja, sъpsavъša knigy sija sъ bija pomoštija i stjaja Bogordicja prisnoděvja Marija.

124406 Road Valley of the River Lakavica Place This road through the valley of the river Kriva Lakavica is part of the road between Štip and Petrič and led via Dědino into the valley of the river Strumica. It is attested indirectly in the so-called ‘Praktikon of Konče’ , which is dated to the time after 1366. The ‘Praktikon’ mentions the existence of a watchtower (na stražišti and u stražišti) near the village of Trěskavac. Most probably the watchtower was located on the elevation Treskavačka čuka, 602 m above sea level and about 9 km north-north-west of the village of Konče, thus overlooking the whole valley in both directions. We can find certain proof for the existence of this sideway in the Ottoman tax registers dating to 1570/73. Therein a “route of the Gazis” (“na Patot na gaziite”) is attested, which ran along the right (north-eastern) side of the river Kriva Lakavica and originally surrounded the elevation Treskavačka čuka from the south-west following the river. Its course was definitely altered in 1978, when the dam lake of Mantovo was accumulated. That is why the modern tarmac road surrounds today the above-mentioned elevation from the north-east. This situation on the ground is reflected by the GPS track in our database, which Mihailo St. Popović recorded during a survey in September 2010. The Ottoman tax registers confirm clearly that the Ottoman troops used this route in the wake of their advance into the historical region of Macedonia. What is more, we even have archaeological evidence for this advance in the shape of an Ottoman funerary monument (“Türbe”) in addition to the written sources. This monument is called “Gazi Evrenos” and lies directly on the right (northern) side of the river Kriva Lakavica, respectively 5,5 km north-north-east of Konče. It was erected before the year 1417 by the famous Ottoman general Ewrenos Bey Gazi for his father ‛Isā Bey Prangi on the spot where the latter had fallen in combat. His death had most probably occurred around 1385, when the Ottomans gained control over the valley of the river Kriva Lakavica. The free-standing monument is of rectangular shape and approximately 5 m high. Its western and eastern front are about 7 m long, whereas its northern and southern front have a length of about 5 m. The entrance to the building lay in the north. Although a space for an inscription can be discerned above the entrance, no traces of it survive today. The walls of the monument are built of gravel, brick and mortar. All four walls have arches and the whole structure is surmounted by a cupola made of brick. The outer walls of the edifice show traces of reddish plasterwork and have worked cornerstones.

123938 Road between Brailovo and Desovo Place During a TIB survey in September 2008 Mihailo St. Popović found remnants of an old road, which connected the villages of Brailovo and Desovo. A dating could not be undertaken due to the lack of archaeological evidence in situ.
123484 Road between Podmol and Bonče Place During a TIB survey in June 2016 Mihailo St. Popović found remnants of an old road, which connected the villages of Podmol and Bonče. A dating could not be undertaken due to the lack of archaeological evidence in situ.
124040 Road near Prilep Place During a TIB survey in June 2016 Mihailo St. Popović documented remnants of an old road, to the South-East of the fortification Markovi Kuli, which is published in the archaeological secondary literature. This road is to be dated to the Middle Ages and was also used in Ottoman times.
123478 Road of Pletvar Place The road over the pass of Pletvar cannot be found in the Serbian charters for the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Treskavec from the years 1334/35, 1343/44 und 1344/45. It connects the valley of the river Vardar (from Gradsko) with the plain of Pelagonia and must have already existed in the Middle Ages. Boban Petrovski surmises that Timurtaş, the Beylerbey of Rumelia, left the town of Serres in the spring of 1385, marched with his army via Dojran to Demir Kapija and then traversed the pass of Pletvar in order to conquer Prilep and Bitola. After that he led his army on the Via Egnatia to Ohrid, which he also captured.
123480 Road of Prisad Place The prisadьsky putь (the "Road of Prisad") is attested in all three Serbian charters for the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Treskavec from the years 1334/35, 1343/44 und 1344/45 and runs over the pass of Prisad to the North-East of Prilep. Most fascinating and puzzling is the fact that the roads, which are attested in the charters of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the monastery cannot be found in situ, i.e. the respective landscape, today. The only exception is the prisadьsky putь, which is named after the pass of Prisad and which connects the valley of the river Vardar (i.e. Veles) as well as of the river Babuna (via the place Izvor) with the plain of Pelagonia (i.e. Prilep). This road is not only attested in the medieval charters, but also in travel accounts or reports of the 19th and 20th centuries. During the Balkan Wars 1912/13 the Serbian army used this road in order to advance against Ottoman-held Prilep. In the First World War (1914-1918) the German army reconstructed and upgraded this road in order to supply its troops on the Salonica Front. During a TIB survey in June 2016 Mihailo St. Popović documented remarkable sections of the German road, which is surprisingly well preserved and which is still used by the indigenous population as a local road in order to transport wood and timber. Thus, the prisadьsky putь has a continuity at least from the Middle Ages until our time.
123492 Road to the Monastery of Zrze Place During a TIB survey in September 2008 Mihailo St. Popović found remnants of an old road, which connected the village of Kostinci to the Monastery of Zrze running in East-West direction. A dating could not be undertaken due to the lack of archaeological evidence in situ.

The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin also donated the property of Manota near Rěčice, which was a dowry from his father-in-law Dragota, to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg. The reason for this act, was the fact, that the property of Manota belonged to the pronoia of the emperor and was not a patrimonial property. Manota was permitted to continue to hold the property on condition, that he and his sons serve the monastery as soldiers (I Dragotino město u Rěčicahь ōbrěte se carьska pronija, a na baština Dragotina, i dade je kraljevьstvo mi crьkvi.

122874 Sarandaporь Place The Vita of Saint Joakim Osogovski from the 12th century relates that the Saint came to the deserted mountains of Osogovo (vъ strani gōry pustiny Ōsogovskie). At first, he stayed in the vicinity of the village of Grad’cь (въ selě… Grad’cь). Then, he settled in a cave in Babinь Dōlь at the foot of the Osogovo Mountains (pōdkrilïe gory Osogovskïe) near the river Skupica (pri rěcě gljeměi Skupice). Finally, he went to a plot of land called Sarandaporь (vь pōdkrily gory Osogovskye na městě gljemě Sarandaporь). A certain priest called Theodorь came, after the death of Saint Joakim Osogovski (approximately 1105?) and during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Manuel I Komnenos (reigned 1143-1180), from the village of Osmir Dolě, allegedly in Ovče Pole, to Sarandaporь (Vъ dni tie běše ierei imenemь Theōdorь vь stranah Ovčepolьskyh. Vь vsi zovoměi Osmir dolě). Theōdorь was led by divine inspiration and came with the blessing of the Saint. He became a monk and changed his name to Teofan. He built a church in honor of Saint Joakim Osogovski and kept his relics there. He was also the first abbot of the monastery. A monk called Arsenije from the city of Veles (ōt Velesa grad) experienced his conversion in the monastery's church. The genealogical tables of the Serbain rulers attest that the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) founded several monasteries, including that of Saint Joakim (Sarandaporь svetomu otcu Їōakimu). Actually, King Milutin did not found it, but gave order to renew it. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (reigned 1321-1331) crossed, in the run-up to the battle of Velbužd on 28 July 1330, the region of Slavište. He followed the upper course of the Kriva reka and reached Kriva Palanka, where he prayed with his noblemen at the Monastery of Sarandaporь in front of the relics of Saint Joakim Osogovski (Takožde i kь svetomu otьcu Ioakimu suštemu vь Saranьdaporě molьbu tvore prišьdь kь grobu těla jego). News reached him in Sarandaporь that the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) had arrived at the castle of Zemen and had begun to pillage the surrounding area. The Byzantine short chronicles relate that the Ottoman Sultan Bāyezīd I (reigned 1389-1402) handed over the relics of the Saint Ilariōn of Moglena to the Serbian nobleman Konstantin Dragaš in 1393. According to this written source, Konstantin Dragaš, who resided in Žegligovo (ὁποῦ ἐκάθετον εἰς τὸν Ὀζίγλοβο), brought them to the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael (sic!) in Sarandaporь (τοῦ ἤφερεν εἰς τὸ ἅγιον μοναστήριον τοῦ Ταξιάρχου εἰς τὸ Σαραντάπωρον). The Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II (reigned 1451-1481) stayed in the Monastery of Sarandaporь in 1463 on his campaign to Bosnia (i dohodi u manastirь Sarandaporь na Krivoi rěcě). The Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) decided in 1474 to give a donation of 20 perper to the Monastery of Sarandaporь (elemosinam monasterio Sancti Joachim partium Bulgarie). Arsenij, who was the abbot of the Monastery of Sarandaporь, died in 1488 (prěstavi se igumenь Sarandaporskyi, kyr Arsenїe). 41 Monks lived in the monastery according to the Ottoman Defter from 1519. Sarandaporь is registered as Sveti Otec in Egri Dere (Kriva Palanka; Kriva reka) in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. The monastery had three churches and twelve chapels. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1585 and rebuilt afterwards.
11429 Saždena Vrba Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo was in possession of two fields not far from Saždena vrba. A certain Alavand donated the first one to the monastery for the sake of salvation of his soul (art. 28: Niva u Saždene Vrьbe meždu izvodama dana ōd Alavan᾿da za dušu crьkvi, na 10 zametь). The second one was bought from Pardo, his family, his brother-in-law Teodor and his relative Rob (art. 29: I druga niva niže tezi nive što proda Par᾿do s᾿ rodom᾿ si, i sь šurem᾿ si Theōdoromь i svojačimomь si Robomь, na jednoi brazde glogь mežda i do hvališ᾿ka puti).
12250 Seběmišlja Place King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated possessions, which he bought from Kostadin, An᾿drian, from the lady Kalija and her brother Theodora to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (I kupi kraljevstvo mi ōt Kostadina syna Lip᾿siōtova, i ōd An᾿driana, syna kirь Theōdorova, i ōd kira Kalije, sestre Theōdorove i ōd brata jeje Theōdora, iže imějahu města u Skopi gradě i v ōblasti Skop᾿skoi, v Prěsci, i v Sušici, i vь Sul᾿ni Dolnjemь i Gornjemь, ili vь Sopištehь ili više Kapeš᾿ca, ili vь Trescě, ili vь Seběmišli, ili vь koi ljubo pori (sic!) skopьskoi [ed.

The settlement site Skandalsko is mentioned in the boundary description of the village Prosěnikovo (ot gornje Prolukje, ot kitaste topole prěko po gornoi brazed Guzarine nive pod selište Skandalsko).
112993 Skačkovo Selište Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) donated the village of Kolicko to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in 1354/55. In the boundary description of Kolicko the settlement site Skačkovo Selište is mentioned (A vo mege sela Kolicka: …tere po srědě Skačkova selišta). Without doubt Skačkovo Selište formed the nucleus of today's village of Skačkovce. The village of Skačkovce appears also in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. It is registered as Ali Fadil and Iskačkofči respectively in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572.
198 Skopje Place The Bulgarian Tsar Constantine I Asen mentioned the town of Skopje in his donation of goods to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg (na brъdě Vir'gině prěmo Skopii grad(a) nadь Serěvǫ, vь grad(ě) Skopьskomъ). ------------ The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos mentioned the town of Skopje in his donation to the monastery of Saint Nikita in the years 1299/1300 (πλησίον [τῶν Σκοπίων]). In 1299/1300 or 1308 a Serbian version of a charter by Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš II Milutin - confirmed the donations made by Michael IX (ō priloženi ježe vь Skopi ). In both charters the Upper Town of Skopje is also mentioned (kь gradu Skopьskomu/ἀπὸ τοῦ κάστρου τῶν Σκοπίων). ------------ The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirmed the donations by Tsar Constantine I Asen and added new properties to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (svetago i velikago mučenika Hristova Gjeōrgiïa prěmo Skopiju gradu na Seravě na brьdě rekoměmь Verьginь). ------------ On 1 January 1345 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued a charter in Skopje concerning the Tower of Hrusija on the Holy Mount Athos. ------------ In the period from April until August 1346 King Stefan Dušan enacted a series of charters in Skopje for several monasteries on the Holy Mount Athos, for Georgios Phokopoulos and for Dubrovnik. ------------ In the year 1346/47 the same King mentioned the town of Skopje in the foundation charter of the episcopal see in Zletovo (такодже и подвигосмо всечьстнѹю Скопию), which he most probably issued in Skopje itself. ------------ On 21 May 1349 Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan issued a charter for the anagnost Dragoje in Skopje. ------------ In the years 1354/55 the same Emperor enacted a charter in Skopje for the Church of the Presentation of the Theotokos in Arhiljevica.

117329 Skopje, Kamen most Place
7658 Skopje, Local Road Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) confirmed and donated landed property to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg in and near Skopje in the year 1300. In his charter he is also mentioning the Lower Town of Skopje with its buildings, amongst others a local road, which ran to the Round Tower of the Upper Town (ѡдь царева дрѹма кои греде ѡдь сераве кь светои троѥрѹчици ѹс пѹте кои иде кь ѡблои пирзѣ).
7235 Skopje, Lower Town Place
7530 Skopje, Lower Town, Church of St. George with its Residence Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirmed and donated (landed) property to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg in and near Skopje in the year 1300. In his charter he is also mentioning the Lower Town of Skopje with its buildings, amongst others the Church of Saint George (и прида кралѥвство ми апокавковѹ црьквь светаго геѡргиꙗ) with its residence (ѡще дворь апокавковь), which were both erected by a Byzantine called Apokaukos.
8998 Skopje, Lower Town, Church of St. Marina Place The Church of St. Marina was donated by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg in the year 1300 and was to be found to the north of the Upper Town of Skopje (и црьквь светаꙗ марина више града).
8685 Skopje, Lower Town, Church of St. Mina Place Immediately to the West of the Church of the Birth of the Mother of God lay originally the Church of St. Mina, which was built by the Greeks of Skopje with Serbian financial support. It was devastated in 1915 and renovated in 1935 in order to house the Church Museum of the Metropolis of Skopje. The Church of St. Mina was destroyed by the earthquake of the year 1963 and is now being re-erected on the same spot. The building site of this church was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
8715 Skopje, Lower Town, Church of St. Nicholas Place Apart from the road leading to the Round Tower of the Upper Town of Skopje (ѹс пѹте кои иде кь ѡбло(и) пирзѣ), there existed also an Imperial Road to the same tower, on which the Church of St. Nicholas was to be found (светаго николи, (и ѡдь царе)ва пѹти кои греде кь ѡблои пирзѣ долѹ до града до капицалꙗ). This Church of St. Nicholas was donated together with its garden by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg in the year 1300. The aforesaid garden lay on the river Serava and stretched towards the Church of St. Nicholas (и на серавѣ врьть (...) прѣма светимь николѥмь). Therefore, it may be assumed that the Church of St. Nicholas was located immediately to the north-west of the Church of the Mother of God of "the Three Hands" and also in the vicinity of the Church of Saint George of the Byzantine Apokaukos.
7949 Skopje, Lower Town, Eski-Yeni Hamam Place The remnants of an Ottoman bath (hamam) called Eski-Yeni Hamam are to be found immediately to the west of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University. It was built in the 15th century and was severely damaged in the earthquake of 1963. This hamam was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
7936 Skopje, Lower Town, Mosque Kebir Mehmet Bey Place The Mosque Kebir Mehmet Bey (also Kebir Mehmed Čelebi) is to be found immediately to the south-east of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University. It was built in 1469 and rebuilt for the first time after an earthquake in 1555. On the east side of the mosque, a few gravestones are still to be seen. This mosque was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
7664 Skopje, Major Road Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) confirmed and donated landed property to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg in and near Skopje in the year 1300.

7444 Skopje, Upper Town, Church Place A church in the Upper Town of Skopje is attested in the acts and letters of Archbishop Demetrios Chomatenos of Ohrid (ἐν τῷ κάστρῳ αὐλῆς […] τὴν εἰρημένην τοῦ θείου τούτου αὐλὴν μετὰ τοῦ ἐν ταύτῃ ἱδρυμένου ἱεροῦ καὶ θείου ναοῦ), which can neither be dated nor localised.
7434 Skopje, Upper Town, Church of Saint Constantine Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin erected a Church of Saint Constantine in the Upper (?) Town of Skopje during his reign (и црьковь светааго Коньстаньтина вьноутрь града Скопиꙗ).
7456 Skopje, Upper Town, Church of the Holy Virgin Borišičina Place The existence of the Church of the Holy Virgin Borišičina is attested by a fragmentary charter issued by the Byzantine co-emperor Michael IX Palaiologos in ca. 1299/1300, through which he donated it to the monastery of Saint Nikita (μονύδριον διακείμενον μὲν καὶ τοῦτο περὶ τὸν αὐτὸν τόπον τῶν Σκοπίων, εἰς ὄνομα δὲ τιμώμενον τῆς πανυπεράγνου θεομήτορος καὶ οὕτω πως ἐπιλεγόμενον τῆς Βορισίνης). ------------------------ In a charter of the Byzantine emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš II Milutin - in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the tower of Hrusija of the monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the possessions of the monastery of Saint Nikita in and near Skopje were confirmed, amongst others the aforesaid church and vineyards (U tomь Skopii drugaja cr(ь)k(v)i na ime S(ve)tije B(ogorodi)ce, Borišičina, s ljudmi čto se ōbr[ě]taju po(dь)nom i sь nivami i sь vinogradi).
7428 Skopje, Upper Town, Church of the Saint Archangel Michael Place After the Serbian conquest of Skopje in 1190 the Serbian Grand Župan Stefan Nemanja renovated the Church of the Saint Archangel Michael, which was located in the Upper Town.
7324 Skopje, Upper Town, Cross-Shaped Church Place In systematic excavations in the Upper Town (Kale) from 2007 until 2012 a cross-shaped church (13th-14th cent.) was discovered in the south-eastern section of the Upper Town (i.e. excavation Kale VII). Perhaps these remnants are to be identified with the Church of the Holy Virgin, which is mentioned in the charter of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Monastery of St. George-Gorg near Skopje in the year 1300 (вьнѹтрь града скопиꙗ при вратѣхь великыхь полата и црьквь светаа богородица еже ѥсть придаль монахь ксенофонть). This church was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
7486 Skopje, Upper Town, Monastery of Saint Nicetas Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos mentioned the Monastery of Saint Nikita near Skopje in the years 1299/1300 (πλησίον [τῶν Σκοπίων] εὑρίσ[κετ]αι μοναστή[ριον εἰς ὄνο]μα τιμώμενον τοῦ Ἁγίου μεγαλομάρτ[υ]ρος Νικήτα). In 1299/1300 or 1308 a Serbian version of a charter by Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin - confirmed the donations made by Michael IX (ō priloženi ježe vь Skopi cr(ь)kva S(ve)t(a)go m(u)č(e)nika Nikiti vь metohiju). It could well be that the scribe of the aforesaid Slavonic charter localised the Monastery of Saint Nikita wrongly in the vicinity of the Upper Town of Skopje, while it is to be found to the NW outside of the town, which is indicated by the Byzantine charter. The forged Transcript A of the Collective Charter of Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Chilandar monastery reports that the deserted Monastery of Saint Nikita was found and re-erected by the Serbian king (I ōbrěte kraljevьstvo mi manastyrь zapustělь vь Skopʼskoi straně Svetago Nikitu ōtьčьstva mojego i napravihь jego). He donated it afterwards to to Tower of Hrusija near the Chilandar monastery (a Svetago Nikitu dahь mojemu pirʼgu sь vʼsěmь jego utʼvrьždenijemь). The Church has an elongated cross-in-square plan, with a dome and interior which is divided into nine bays. The four bays that form a cross are barrel-vaulted. The calotte of the dome (made of brick) rests upon a high octagonal drum. The specific design of the sanctuary, which consists of the eastern arm of the cross, a short narrow bay and a semicircular apse, was imitated in Serbian fourteenth-century architecture, especially in Churches founded by noblemen. The façades were built in alternating layers of bricks and ashlars. Also, the façade walls of the church are decorated with blind arches that rest on lesenes. As supposed by researchers the Church was built by Byzantine master builders (influence came from the nearby Thessaloniki like the Church of Saint Panteleimon, the small Church of the Holy Saviour and the Church of the Panagia Elassona Olympiotissa in Elassona). The building was fresco decorated in the 14th century (after 1321) by Michael Astrapas, the famous Thessalonian painter of the Palaiologan era, and his associates . The Church had a parakklesion once situated in the Eastern section of the South wall and was dedicated to St. John the Baptist, and was fresco painted in the 16th century. It was a single nave edifice with the width greater than the length and it was demolished in 1928.
7249 Skopje, Upper Town, Northern Gate Place This gate was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
7268 Skopje, Upper Town, Ottoman Gate Place After the Ottoman conquest of Skopje at the end of the 14th century a new (Ottoman) gate was built in the north-eastern section of the fortification of the medieval Upper Town, which connected it then to the new Ottoman parts of the city in the north-east. This gate was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
7413 Skopje, Upper Town, Royal Palace Place In systematic excavations in the Upper Town (Kale) from 2007 until 2012 remnants of a royal residence of the Serbian rulers (13th-14th cent.) were discovered on the highest point of the Upper Town (cf. excavation Kale VII), which was the most representative building in the medieval Upper Town and was destroyed during the Ottoman conquest at the end of the 14th century. This excavation was documented by Mihailo Popović during his survey in Skopje from 13 June 2016 until 30 June 2016.
113497 Skrьlinci Place The village of Skrьlinci (selo Skrьlinci) was granted to the Monastery of Hilandar by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš in the year 1378/79 .
118815 Slatina Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Uglješa donated the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa in Melnik with its properties to the Monastery of Batopedi on Mount Athos in January 1365. On this occassion the inventory of all possessions was isssued. The inventory records 3700 modioi of land in a plot called Slatina, Smelaiu and beyond the topographical entity by the name of Klesuritza, which was in the possession of the monastery (γὴν εἰς τὴν Σλάτιναν καὶ εἰς τοῦ Σμήλαιου καὶ ἔξο ἀπο τὴν λεγωμένην Κλησουρίτζαν μοδίων γ επτακοσίῳν).
124086 Slavište, Road, put Place A road to Slavište is mentioned in the foundation charter of the Bishopric of Zletovo, which was issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) in 1346/47 (i putemь koi grede u Slavišta).
122835 Slavištе Place Slavište is attested for the first time in the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Basileios II (reigned 976-1025) for the Archbishishopric of Achrida (Ōhrid) from 1019. It is listed as a part of the Bishopric of Morobisdos (Morozvižd) (Καὶ τὸν ἐπίσκοπον Μοροβίσδου εἰς αὐτὸν τὸν Μορόβισδον καὶ τὸν Κοζιάκον καὶ τὴν Σλαβίστην). A poem in honor of the Byzantine general Michael Dukas Glabas Tarchaneiotes, which is the work of the Byzantine writer Manuel Philes (13th/14th c.), mentions amongst others the Byzantine conquest of Slavište (Εὐτζάπολιν δὲ συλλαβὼν Μοροβίσδου, Σκόπιά τε Σθλάβιτζαν ἐξ εὐανδρίας, Καὶ τὸν Πίαντζον καὶ τὸ περὶ τὸν Στρόμον, Καὶ τὸν περὶ Στρούμμιτζαν ἄφθονον τόπον). Slavište is attested in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) for the Monastery of Gračanica from 1315 (or 1321) (I po Vraniju I po Slavištu i po… i po Zletovoi, i po Morozvizdu, i si...makije iže ōt ōblasti grьčьskyje, gospodьstvujei kralь Srьbskihь Zemlь, i po jegově milosti koje podastь ōbladati jepiskupii, ili Prizrenьskoi ili Lipljanьskoi, i po Liplaně i po Moravě). A road to Slavište is mentioned in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Bishopric of Zletovo from 1346/47 (i putemь koi grede u Slavišta). Due to the few and ambiguous sources, the question remains open, whether Slavište was both a town and a region in the Middle Ages. The Nahiye Slavişte formed a part of the Sanjak Köstendil in the Ottoman period (16th century).
132320 Slivnica Place The charter, which is mentioning the mountain Slivnica, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište).
12148 Slivovikь Place The charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) for the Monastery of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel near Prizren dated to 1347/48 refers to the village of Slivovikь in the border delimitation of the village of Klьčevišta (A megja Klьčevištemь: do visa us poljanu, megju Pьsi Dolь i megju hlьmь tere pravo na kolovozь, i koi putь ide ōt Banjanь pravo mimo selo Slivovikь, kako izlazi kolnikь na kamenikь na brьdo, i ōt tudu pravo u planinu putemь obь druge strane do crьkvišta pri Kalopetrově lozě, a gorě uz dělь u planinu; a ōt Skopija megja, po srědě Dobroga Dola, u putь u prěky koi grede ōt Čahra, i do mramora putemь koi grede uz Golihovo pravo u Banjane, ōt toga puti pravo u visь, koi ide megju Banjane i megju Klьčevišta).
118825 Smelaiu Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Uglješa donated the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa in Melnik with its properties to the Monastery of Batopedi on Mount Athos in January 1365. On this occassion the inventory of all possessions was isssued. The inventory records 3700 modioi of land in a plot called Slatina, Smelaiu and beyond the topographical entity by the name of Klesuritza, which was in the possession of the monastery (γὴν εἰς τὴν Σλάτιναν καὶ εἰς τοῦ Σμήλαιου καὶ ἔξο ἀπο τὴν λεγωμένην Κλησουρίτζαν μοδίων γ επτακοσίῳν).
131814 Smrьdeštci Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan granted a field of arable land near the village Smrьdeštci to the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) (na Smrьdeštci).
116316 Sopotnica Place On 14 June 1347 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for Orsa Crijević in Sopotnica (most probably near Kruševo).
117371 Spasovica Place According to the Lives of Serbian Kings and Archbishops by the Serbian Archbishop Danilo II (ca. 1270/75-1337) and his successors, the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (reigned 1321-1331) gathered his army in the forefront of the Battle of Velbužd in the first half of 1330 on a field called Dobrič (Dobričko polje), located in today's South-Eastern Serbia at the confluence of the rivers Južna Morava and Toplica. He intended to await the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) for a battle at this place. As messengers informed him that the Bulgarian Tsar had reached the region near the castle of Zemen at the Upper Strymon (Struma), where the then border of the Serbian Kingdom lay, he also set his army in motion and moved to Nagoričino, where he prayed in the Church of Saint George (priide vь monastirь svoi kь svetomu mučeniku Hristovu Georьgiju Nagoričьskomu). After that he crossed the region of Slavište, followed the upper course of the river Kriva Reka and arrived at Kriva Palanka, where he prayed in the nearby Monastery of Joakim of Osogovo (Sarandaporь). According to the Lives of Serbian Kings and Archbishops the Bulgarian Tsar came probably from his residence in Veliko Tărnovo and went through the town of Vidin to the castle of Zemen. Stefan Dečancski advanced by forced march to the river Sovolštica. According to the Byzantine Emperor and historian John Kantakuzenos (reigned 1347-1354) Michael III moved to a place, which was called Belmasdis (ἐν τόπῳ Βελμάσδιν, today's Kjustendil) by the locals, where he pitched his camp. The Byzantine historian Nikephoros Gregoras relates that Michael III invaded the land of the Serbs (ἐς τὴν τῶν Τριβαλλῶν χώραν) in the place, where the river Strymon has its source (ποταμοῦ τοῦ Στρυμόνος εἰσὶν αἱ πηγαί). Before the decisive battle, the Bulgarian army encamped in the area between the present villages of Šiškovci and Kopilovci. The battle took place on Saturday, 28 July, 1330 and ended with a victory of the Serbian army. Stefan Dečanski killed or captured Michael III Šišman and brought him to Žegligovo (adumere eum in Segligovo), where he was buried in the Church of Saint George in the village of Nagoričino (et sepulchro datus est in Ecclesia sancti Georgii in pago Gorichina). The Serbian King erected the Church of the Ascension of Jesus Christ (i crьkovь svetago vьznesenïa sьzdati tu; also called Sveti Spas, therefore Spasovica) on the hill of Spasovica in memory of the battle. The Church of Sveti Spas does not exist anymore. The entire hill is now abundantly covered with coniferous trees that have been planted systematically. On the highest point of the hill there is a clearing, on which no traces or remains of the church exist. Originally, the entire plain of Kjustendil could be overlooked from this point, which is now impossible due to the vegetation. The Church of Sveti Spas began to decline most likely in the 16th or 17th centuries. Already at the beginning of the 20th century only parts of it were preserved, as can be seen from the documentation of the Bulgarian scholar Jordan Ivanov (1872-1947). In or after the Second World War the church was completely ruined. The published descriptions and the photographic evidence enable an approximate architectural reconstruction of the Church of the Ascension of Jesus Christ. It was a cross-domed church (with four pillars). Above the narthex in the West there were two domes, above the naos one dome (diameter: about 3,7 m). The church had a rectangular ground plan (about 12 m x 8 m). The main entrance was in the West (in the narthex), a second in the South (in the naos). The narthex and the naos were interconnected with a door. The construction of the church was most likely completed after the death of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (after 1331).
121167 Sracin Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with the village of Ōtьrьštica. He donated it to the Monastery of Hilandar together with all its rights up to Sracin (I selo Ōtьrьštica sь vsěmi pravinami sela togo, do Sracina po vrьhu planine kako se vali kamenь ōvamo). In our opinion the mentioning of Sracin in the border description does not refer to the village of Stracin, which is attested in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519, 1530/31 and from the years 1570 to 1572, but to the mountain pass that formed the Western border of the region of Slavište.
11149 Sredorek Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo was in possession of a field opposite Sredorek, which was bought from Savdik (285, art. 16: Niva protivu Srědorěku, kuplena ōtь Savdikja, na 15 dьninь). It contains also evidence about a field not far from Nikiforovec above Sredorek, which was bought from Gjuroj for a horse by the monastery (288, art. 38: Niva u Nikiforovci nad Srědorěkomь kuplena ōtь Gjuroja za konь).
118453 Srьbšori Place The Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in the so-called „zbirna hrisovulja” from the years 1303/1304 and 1336/1340-1342/1345 the donation of the Church of Sveti Georgij with vineyards and fields in the settlement site Srьbšori to the Monastery of Hilandary. The church was founded by Berislav and the charter describes also the boundary limitation of the metochion (I crьkvь svetago Geōrьgia, što jestь zidalь Berislavь na selišti Srьbšori, sь vinogradomь i sь nivijem i sь vseju ōblasti crьkve te: Sinorь ōt Pupavnicu po dělu ba lokьvu i na Gornicu, ta na drumь i na Zubovo Krušije niz rěku do trapa srьbskago, da jestь metohь svete Bogorodice hilandarskyje). The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos in 1340/1341 confirmed the village Šepšorovo with all boundaries and rights as a property of the Hilandar Monastery (καὶ τὸ χωρίον τοῦ Σρεψόβου μεθ’ ἧς ἔχει περιοχῆς καὶ νομῆς). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the settlement site Šepšorovo, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, to the Monastery of Hilandar after May 1343. The name of the settlement site is preserved only in the second variant of the charter (I selište Šepʼšorovo sь vsěmi megjami i opravʼdanʼmi sela togo).
111765 Stanka Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of Vilska to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55. The site appears only in the later transcript (Hil. 150). The village of Stanka is mentioned in the boundary description of Vilska (Ōtь Vodičnikove glavě upravь na u Pogorь, na Glьbokyi dolь, na Staʼnke). The village of Stančik, probably identical with the village of Stanka, was granted by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš to the Monastery of Hilandar in the year 1378/79 (selo Stančikja). Stanka is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572.
120312 Stavrakь Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the mountain Ōgraždeno and Draguljevo with surrounding area, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, to the Monastery of Hilandar after May 1343. In the boundary description of the land also the ford of Stavrakь is attested (I planina Ōgraždeno i Draguljevo i podьplaninьje sь vseju ōblastiju. I megja imь: brodь Stavrakь, niz Veliju rěku/ I planina Ōgraždeno i Draguljevo i podьplaninje sь vseju ōblastiju. I megja imь: brodь Stavrakь, niz Veliju rěku). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in the prostagma charter issued between 1349 and 1353 that the land in Strumica region belonged to the Hilandar Monastery. The boundary in dispute was deliminated by the čelnik Branilo. The ford of Stavrakь is listed among the boundary marks of the deliminated area (I utesaše megju brodь Stavrakь nizь Veliju rěku upada Vasilica).
12254 Stežerno Place The place name Stěžerno appears twice – in the boundary delimitation of the village Vodno (ta uzь dělь do Kamiě velijega prěma Črьvenoi prьsti, ta uzь Veli dělь na Stežerno na Gradištь na Krьstoforь) and of the village Sulnje (ta na Golo brьdo, jednako nisь hridь kь Stežernu megju ōba dola, ta na baru, ta na Veli dubь kolikomь na Mramorije).
132325 Stlьbica Place The charter, which is mentioning the boundary mark Stlьbica, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište).
19593 Stlьpčane Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of several possessions to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55. In the boundary description of the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica the village of Stlьpčane is mentioned (A vo mege crьkvi matere Božijei Arьhilevьskoi. Ōtь krьsta putjemь koi grede ōdь Podolěšanь u Stlьpačani). The village of Stlьpčane is registered as Uslupčani in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572 .
117342 Stracin Place In January 1531 Benedikt Kuripešič travelled through Stracin (Stratzin). The village of Stracin is not to be confused with the mountain pass of Sracin. The Venetian official Gaspare Erizzo crossed Stracin (Strasino) in 1558 on his journey to Samokov. Stracin is also mentioned in an Italian itinerary from 1558 (Strazin). The village of Stracin is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519, 1530/31 and from the years 1570 to 1572. Stracin appears in a note of a Slavic manuscript from the 17th century among the accommodations on the road to Constantinople (Stracinь).
118186 Strezovci Place It is doubtful, whether today's village of Strezovci is the same village, which is mentioned as Strezovci and Strezeōvci in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. The village of Strezovci is registered as Istrzofče in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
19147 Stroi Place The katun of the Vlachs Stroi is mentioned in the Slavic donor inscription of the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1340/41 as a monastic property (katunь vlaha na stroi). Furthermore, the katun Stroi appears in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (I katunь vlahь nastroi). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš donated on the 15th August 1381 the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) with all its possessions, including the settlement site Stroi, in which the Vlachs used to be settled (selište Nastroi gde su Vlasi sěděli), to the Hilandar Monastery.
120560 Stroislavci Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš confirmed after 1376/1377 the donation of the village Stroislavci to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I selo Stroislavci). The village is registered in the Defters for the Nahiya Štip in 1519, 1550 and 1573 also as Strisovci.
123515 Stromos Place A poem in honor of the Byzantine general Michael Dukas Glabas Tarchaneiotes, which is the work of the Byzantine writer Manuel Philes (13th/14th c.), mentions amongst others the Byzantine conquest of Stromos (Εὐτζάπολιν δὲ συλλαβὼν Μοροβίσδου, Σκόπιά τε Σθλάβιτζαν ἐξ εὐανδρίας, Καὶ τὸν Πίαντζον καὶ τὸ περὶ τὸν Στρόμον, Καὶ τὸν περὶ Στρούμμιτζαν ἄφθονον τόπον). The localisation of Stromos is disputed in the bibliography. Possibly it is to be identified with today's village of Stroimanci.
117700 Struga Vraniška Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the villages Struga Vraniška and Struga Mala, the upper and lower courtyard in Struga and the church of saint Nikola near the lake with all rights and seven fishers to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (Struga Vraniška i Struga Malam i vь, i vь gradě gōrni dvorь i dolni dvorь, i na jezerě crьkva sveti Nikola sь vsěmi pravinami, i sedьmь ribarь). Struga Vraniška is probably identical with the village Vraništa, which is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid under the year 1583.
117703 Strugai Place The place is mentioned in Anna Komnena as a refuge, where the Byzantine emperor Alexios I. Komnenos sought protection on his journey to Ohrid (καὶ οὕτως ἀμετρήτους καὶ μεγίστους διεκφυγὼν κινδύνους αὖθις σῴζεται διὰ τῶν Στρουγῶν διελθὼν εἰς Ἀχρίδας). Appears in the addition to the narrative about the confirmation of the Bulgarian archbishoprics autocephaly by the Byzantine Emperor Basileios II. in several manuscripts of the Chronicle of John Skylitzes from the 12th century and later (πρὸς δὲ τὸ τέρμα τῆς λίμνης τὰς ἐγχωρίως λεγομένας Στρούγας εὑρηκὼς καὶ ταύταις ἑνωθεὶς μέγιστός τε γίνεται ποταμῶν). According to the inscription probably from 1266/1267 on the icon of the saint George, a certain John the deacon, who held also the position of referendarios, donated the restored icon by the painter John to the Church of saint George in Struga near Ohrid (δῶρον τοῦ σοῦ οἰκέτου εὐτελοῦς Ἰωάννου τοῦ διακόνου ῥαιφερενδαρίου τε ἀξίαν ἔχων· γράψαντι σεπτῶς τὴν σὴν μορφὴν ἀγίαν ἐν χροματουργήμασι ποικιλοτρόποις ταύτην ἀνιστῶν ἐν Στρούγαις τῆς Άχρίδος. Ἰωάννης ἐκ πόθου τὴν δέησιν ποιεῖται. Ἐν ἔτει ͵ςψοεʹ ἰνδικτιῶνος θʹ ἀνιστορήθη δὲ διὰ χειρὸς Ἰωάννου ἱστοριογράφου).The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the villages Struga Vraniška and Struga Mala, the upper and lower courtyard in Struga and the church of saint Nikola near the lake with all rights and seven fishers to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (Struga Braniška i Struga Mala i vь, i vь gradě gōrni dvorь i dolni dvorь, i na jezerě crьkva sveti Nikola sь vsěmi pravinami, i sedьmь ribarь). The town of Struga is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536-1539 and under the year 1583.
120182 Strumica, Church Hagioi Dekapente Place The Church of Holy Fifteen Martyrs from Tiberiopolis is mentioned three times in the fragment of the Praktikon from 1320 listing the holdings of the Iberon Monastery in Palaiokastron (Veljusa) and its surroundings (πλησίον τῶν Ἁγίων Δεκαπέντε μοδίων λδʹ; πλησίον τῶν Ἁγίων Δεκαπέντε μοδίων ιθʹ; εἰς τοὺς Ἁγίους Δεκαπέντε).
118458 Strumica, Church of the Holy Apostles Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX. Palaiologos issued in August 1310 a chrysobull charter, in which he also confirmed the possession of the Iberon Monastery over the Church of the Holy Apostles in the surroundings of Strumica with vineyards and pieces of fields. This property was donated to the monastery by a soldier from the unit of a certain Knentzopulos (τὸ περὶ τὴν Στρούμμιτζαν τῶν Ἁγίων καὶ ἐνδόξων μετὰ τῶν ἀμπελώνων καὶ χωραφίων αὐτοῦ, ὅπερ ἀνεδέξαντο παρά τινος στρατιώτου ἀπὸ τῶν ἐκεῖσε τοῦ Κνεντζοπούλου λεγομένου).

118344 Strumica, Lower Town Place Theodoros acqired a garden plot below the lower town of Strumica from Theodoros and his family in June 1286 (πεπράκαμεν προς σὲ σεβαστὸν κῦρ Θεόδωρον τον Τετραγονήτιν στρέμματα ϛʹ, πλησίον χωραφίου του αυτου κυροῦ Θεοδώρου, καὶ κυπότοπὸν στρέμαν ἒν ἥμισυ κάτοθεν του εμπορίου Στρουμμίτζης πλησίον του Ρόμψου. Ἑπουλήθην το τιούτὸν χωραφιον καὶ κυποτοπίω τούτω εις ὑπέρπυρα βʹ καὶ δουκάτα πέντε).
118289 Strumica, The Church of Hagioi Anargyroi Place The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II. Palaiologos confirmed, that the Church of Hagioi Anargyroi in the vicinity of Strumica was in the possession of the Iberon Monastery on Mount Athos (τὸ περὶ τὴν Στρούμμιτζαν εἰς ὄνομα τιμώμενον τῶν Ἁγίων Ἀναργύρων).

The Metochion was abondened in the beginning of the 20th century due to the lack of monks. Most of the churches in Strumica were destroyed during the fire in 1869 and in 1913.
15457 Strumica, Upper Town Place On 28 March 1345 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter in Strumica for the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos.

11151 Suhačja Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo was in possession of two fields under Suhačja, which were donated by Nikola for the right to have a grave (art. 5: Niva koju dade Nikola, Hrьsovь zetь, za grobь, niz Suhačju ōtь puti prěč᾿na do nive manastirьske) and by Dragčo and Marko for the sake of the salvation of their souls (art. 6: Niva pod tom᾿zi Suhači, što dade Drag᾿čo polovinu a Marko polovinu za dušu, na 15 pogonь).

120223 Suhogrьlь Place The charter, which is mentioning the settlement site Suhogrьlь, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I prida kraljevьstvo mi selišta zapoustěvьša ōt věka. Ime selištu: Brěstь i Suhogrьlь).

Radinь copied the gospel book for the priest Zagoranin from Sušica (ispisah siju knigu popu Zagoraninu u Sušiči) and also mentions kaznac Dragoslav, who was in charge of the village of Sušica at that time (ōbladajuštu kaznьcu Sušiceju). In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed the donation of the village of Sušica (selo Sušica) with a summer pasture (planina) to the Monastery of Hilandar, which had been given to the monastery by the Serbian nobleman Vlatko Paskačić. The river of Glьbočica is mentioned in the boundary description of the village of Sušica (I selo Sušica, a megja jei Glьbočica kako pripada u rěku i vsěmi pravinami sela togo, s obršinami i planinōmь).
131808 Sv. Georgie Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan granted three fields of arable land near the Church of Sveti Geōrgie to the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) (i svetaga Geōrgïa).
117501 Sveta Bogorodica Karpynska Place In a note (probably from 16th century), which is part of the "Gospel of Karpino" (Karpinsko evangelie) from the 14th century, the Sveta Bogorodica Karpynska (priloži ste bce Karpynske) and the village of Kanarevo are mentioned. The exact location of the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica and of the village of Arhiljevice itself is unknown. There are several suggestions. One of them identifies the church with the Monastery Sveta Bogorodica Karpynska and the village of Arhiljevica with the village of Halinci. Another notice from 1592, which is written in the "Gospel of Karpino", attests the variant Krapino (vь monastyrь Krapino). Originally, there was a village called Karpino/Karbino in the vicinity of the monastery, but this village is already registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572 as mezra Karbino (deserted village Karbino). It is not clear, which of both names (Krapino or Karpino) represents the older one. It is strongly assumed that there was a predecessor of the current church in the 14th century, on whose foundations the new church was built before 1592 (i.e. towards the end of the 16th century). The present church is a single-nave edifice with a main entrance in the West and a side entrance in the South. The apse consists of an atypical triconch. The church is composed of a narthex, a naos and the bema (frescoes from the end of the 16th century and from the end of the 19th century, iconostasis from 1606 and 1892). The church was renewed in 1892, and conservation work was done in 1987 and from 2009 to 2012.
7787 Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska (Monastery Matejče) Place It is assumed that the church building was erected during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Isaakios I Komnenos (1057-1059). The existence of the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is beyond doubt attested from the 14th century. The monastery is mentioned in the boundary description of the village of Črěševo, which forms part of a donation by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (ta nad Svetuju Bogorodicu črьnogorьsku do Črьnoga kamene). The Vita of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V (reigned 1355-1371), written by the Serbian Patriarch Pajsije, reports that Stefan Uroš V and his mother Jelena completed the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska after the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) (I togda blagočьstivaa carica sь sinomь svoimь sьvršajutь crьkovь ostavšuju ōt blagočьstivago i prěvisokago cara Stefana vь črьnoi gori ne sьvršena i trudomь i podvigomь i pomoštïju prečistye vladičice naše i bogorodice i svoihь praroditeь pomoštïju i zastupljenïemь sьvrьšajutь crkьvь prěslavnuju vь pohvalu i slavu uspenïe prěčityje i prěblagoslovenïe vladičice naše i bogorodice i prisnoděvy marie i do dьnьsь iměnuetse črьnogorska bogorodica). It is unclear, whether the Church of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is identical with the church in the Skopska Crna Gora above Žegligovo built by Jelena, the mother of Stefan Uroš V, which is attested in the Serbian genealogies (rodoslovi) and annals (letopisi) (u Črьmьnyje Gory, vyše Žegligova; eius vero mater aedificavit Ecclesiam in Nigro Monte, supra Segligovo). The Ottoman Sultan Murad I (reigned 1360-1389) might have passed by the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska on his march against the Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović (reigned 1373-1389) before the battle on the Kosovo field (Kosovo Polje) in 1389. Evdokija Balšić commissioned the monk Gerasim in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in 1409 to write the manuscript of the Dialogues (paterik) by Saint Gregory the Great (...sia božestvennaja kniga, glagoljemaa dialogь, ispisa se iže vь ōbitěli prěčityje i prěslaьnyje vladyčice naše bogorodice nerukotvorennyje čjudotvorice črьnogorьskye povelěnïem blagověrnyje i blagočьstivyje i hristoljubivyje gospogje despotice kyr Eudokyje, dьšti blagověrnago i hristoljubivago i velikago gospodina Gjurgja Balšikja...). The scribe Vladislav Gramatik resided in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska between 1457 and 1497. In 1479 he compiled a liturgical book (panegyrikon) in the Monastery at the foot of the Crna Gora in the region of Žegligovo (monastiri prěsvetyje vladičice naše bogorodice iže vъ podkrilïi Črьnye Gory, vь prědělě Žegligovʼcěm). The scribe Dimitrij Kantakuzin also temporarily resided in the monastery. The scribal notes of both copyists mention the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in the year 1469 (vь vьsečьstněmь monastiri prěsvetye bogorodice suštee iže v podkrilïi Črьnye Gory), 1473 (vъ vъsečъstněm monastiri prěsvetye vladičice naše bogorodice i prisnoděvy Marïe, suštee iže v podkrilïi Črъnye Gory), 1479 (vь vьsečьstněm monastiri prěsvetyje vladičice naše bogorodice iže vъ podkrilïi Črьnye Gory, vь prědělě Žegligovʼcěm) and 1480/81 (Vladislavu dïaku ōt Črьnogorskye bogorodice). The Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is registered as "Holy Mother of God in Kara Donlu" or "Monastery Karadonlu with the second name Holy Mother of God" in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. In the 17th century (between 1647 and 1654) the Serbian Patriarch Gavrilo Rajić payed a visit to the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska (Da se zna kogda pridohь azь arhiepiskopь Gavriilь vъ carьnogorsku bogorodicu). The British traveller Edward Brown saw most probably the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska, when he passed through the city of Kumanovo in 1668/69 (near which [scil. Kumanovo] there is still a Greek Monastery, upon the side of the Hills). The Church has a ground plan of an inscribed-cross with five domes, resembling those of Staro Nagoričine and Church of St. Panteleimon in Nerezi (near Skoplje), narthex and a three-partite apse. The central dome has a twelve-sided drum and is set on four massive pillars. The smaller domes, erected in the shape of octagons, are located in the corners of the building - the eastern ones are situated on the prosthesis and the deaconry, and the western ones above the narthex. The narthex is decorated with a modest architectural sculpture. The Church is vaulted with barrel and cruciform arches, placed on the walls, pillars and pilasters in the interior of the building. The façade is decorated with lesenes. This Church is a true representative of the building traditions of the Palaiologan epoch, such as Churches in Arta, Mistra and Thessaloniki. The Church has been fresco painted between 1348 and 1352, representing the largest painted ensemble on the Macedonian territory in the 14th century and the second largest in the Balkans.
11153 Sveta Nedela Place In the charter of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo the boundaries of Štenče are described. The village of Štenče and its possessions bordered on the Metochion of Sveta Nedela (Štenče selo sь vsěmi pravinami I s megami, sь modričkymi i gostivarskymi, i do metochyje Svetyje Nedělje). ---------------------- According to the Land Inventory Brebion the Priest Nikola from Rěčice donated a field above Sveta Nedela to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the sake of his salvation (Niva nad Svetomь Nedelomь što dade popь Nikola ōdь Rěčicь). The same document describes how a certain Savdik, since he wanted to have child, donated a field above Sveta Nedela to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (p. 297, art. 76: Savdikь viděvь jere ne imamь poroda da što priložihь Materi Božije za kupь za to da ně rěči, nь davamь nivu nad Svetomь Nedelomь ōtь puti podluž᾿ka, us᾿ put měčički, i do brazde podluž᾿ke, i vinu do mege podluž᾿ke de me pomenuje crьkva).
111783 Sveta Petka Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed the donation of several villages by Sebastokrator Dejan to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica. The toponym of Sveta Petka is mentioned in the boundary delimitation. The landholder or the donor of Svetka Petka called Takša is also attested (ta na Takšinu Svetu Petku/ta na Prosečenikь na svetu Petku). It is unclear, whether Sveta Petka was a village or a church. We suppose that it was a church. Its localisation is also unknown. The secondary literature assumes that it could have been either near Bujanovac in today's Republic of Serbia, or to the North-West of Kumanovo or to the South of Kumanovo in the Republic of North Macedonia.
130254 Sveti Dimitrije Place The settlement site Sveti Dimitrije is mentioned in the charter of the Serbian nobleman Jovan Oliver. The charter was issued between the years 1332 and 1341. Jovan Oliver met the Hegumen Simeon of the Monastery of Saint Dimitrije in Kočani and donated the settlement site Sveti Dimitrije in Jastrebnica to the monastery (selište pusto Svetago Dimitrija u Jastrebnicě).
18026 Sveti Ilija Place King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirmed the donation of the church of Saint Ilija by Kalomen for the right to have a grave to the monastery of Saint George-Gorg (I dade Kalomenь za grobь svoi crьkvь Svetago Iliju sь nivōmь, ōd puti carьskogo koi grede mimo Svety Theōdōrь i do Gornjego puti koi ide prězь brьdo do narotija putma, i ōbь sije strane brьda do kruše gornice i do smokve, ta dolu do puti do vodovažde).
120274 Sveti Ilija Place The boundary description of the village Kunarjane in the narrow place Ključ, which is preserved in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of Hilandar issued after May 1343, mentions the marketplace Sveti Ilija (I u Ključi Kunarani i sinoromь: kako teče is planine potokь megju Ključь i Kunarane, tere potokomь u Veliju rěku a po ōnoi strane rěke na Ōzrinь, na mogilice, na lokʼvu, na sadove, na kopišta, na Črьveni brěg, na veli dubь, pravo u rěku. I trьgь Svetago Ilije// I u Ključi Kunarani i sinoromь: kako teče is planine potokь megju Ključь i Kunarane, tere potokomь u Veliju rěku a po ōnoi strane rěke na Ōzrinь, na mogilice, na lokʼvu, na sadove, na kopišta, na Črьveni brěg, na veli dubь, pravo u rěku. I trьgь Svetago Ilije).
120459 Sveti Kostadinь Place The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Nikola Stanjević became his possessions in the vicinity of Konče from the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He erected the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče (kako poiska na carьstvě mi mnogovьzljublenni vlastelinь i brat carьstva mi veliki vojevoda Nikola, kako da priloži i da mu potpiše carьstvo mi materi Bōžijei hilandarьskōi crьkьvь u Kon’či Svetago Stěfana što si jestь sьzidalь svoimь trudōm i ōtkupumь u svojei baštině zapisanoi, što mu jestь zapisalь i utvrьdilь roditelь carьstva mi, u baštinu do věki, svetopočivьši carь). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with thе villagе of Sveti Kostadinь (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana. Selo Konča, selo Lubnica, selo Trěskavьcь, selo Suhi Dolь, selo Dědino, selo Rakitьcь, selo Sěništa, selo gde jestь sědel Dobroslavь Karbikь, selo polь Tudōrice, selo Kostadinci, selo gde je sědelь Kostadinь, sselo Negronfōti, selo Grkovь Dolь, selo Sveti Kostadinь, i sela ina koja se nahode u meteseh kōnčkihь, mala, golěma kude jestь posadilь vojevoda ōtroke svoje.

120682 Sveti Vrač, The Church of Saint Cosmas and Damian Place The Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš donated after 1376/1377 the Church of Saint Cosmas and Damian with people, vineyards and a watermill to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I ešte priložismo u Petrьči crьkovь Prečistyje Pandanosa duhovnika Iosifa i Svetyhь Vračevy sь ljudmi, sь vinogrady, sь vodeničiemь). Ivanov and Matanov assume that the church was in the city Sandanski, which was called Sveti Vrač till 1949.
11147 Svety Ilija Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated together with his son, the Young King (mlad kralь) Uroš, the Metochion of Svety Ilija located in Upper Polog to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (u Gornjem Polozě metohь Svety Ilija). ------------------------ The monks of Svety Ilija took care of the posessions of the monastery at Suha Gora (da se branii Svetago Ilije ljudmi, i nikto ōtь vladuštiihь kraljevьstva mi da ničto ne zabavitь).
118183 Svinište Place Svinište is mentioned in a Slavonic Menaion from 1420 (u Sviništa). It is registered as Dolno and Gorno Svinište in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. It seems that this village was deserted in the last quarter of the 16th century and that its inhabitants founded a new village with the same name (today Svinjište) in the region of Preševo (today Republic of Serbia).
113463 Svrčin Place In 1337 (?) the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for the Monastery of Chilandar in the palace of Svrčin.
120443 Sěništa Place The grand duke (veliki vojvoda) Nikola Stanjević became his possessions in the vicinity of Konče from the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He erected the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče (kako poiska na carьstvě mi mnogovьzljublenni vlastelinь i brat carьstva mi veliki vojevoda Nikola, kako da priloži i da mu potpiše carьstvo mi materi Bōžijei hilandarьskōi crьkьvь u Kon’či Svetago Stěfana što si jestь sьzidalь svoimь trudōm i ōtkupumь u svojei baštině zapisanoi, što mu jestь zapisalь i utvrьdilь roditelь carьstva mi, u baštinu do věki, svetopočivьši carь). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V realised his wish and donated the Church of Saint Stephen in the village Konče with all its property to the Hilandar Monastery in 1366. The monastery on Mount Athos was endowed also with the villagе Sěništa, where Dobroslavь Karbikь, the nobleman of Nikola Stanjević used to reside (I tuzi crьkьvь prilaga i potpisuje carьstvo mi materi Božijei halandarskōi, vь pomenь carьstva mi i vь pomen brata carьstva mi vojevode Nikole i vsěmi seli crьkve Svetago Stěfana. Selo Konča, selo Lubnica, selo Trěskavьcь, selo Suhi Dolь, selo Dědino, selo Rakitьcь, selo Sěništa, selo gde jestь sědel Dobroslavь Karbikь, selo polь Tudōrice, selo Kostadinci, selo gde je sědelь Kostadinь, sselo Negronfōti, selo Grkovь Dolь, selo Sveti Kostadinь, i sela ina koja se nahode u meteseh kōnčkihь, mala, golěma kude jestь posadilь vojevoda ōtroke svoje.

The village of Sěništa is listed among properties in the inventory of the Church of Saint Stephen, which belonged to the Hilandar Monastery after 1366. The village of Sěništa is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Strumica in 1519 and 1573.
11492 Sōsthnai, Summer Pastures Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320) donated two summer pastures called Sōsthnai to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita in ca. 1299/1300 (ἑτέρας δύο πλανηνὰς καλουμένας Σώσθνας). The source-based context suggests that these summer pastures were located in the mountains to the East of the village of Λουμποτάνιον. ------------ In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328), at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective summer pastures is confirmed (Druzě dvě planině narekoměi Soštně).
18064 T(P)uri(e)šev dolь Place On the demand of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin, the Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palailogos confirmed the donation of a vineyard a short distance away from Turičev dolь to the Monastery of Saint Nikita in Skopje (καὶ ἀμπέλια δύο διακείμενα εἴς τε τὸ Πομπόσδιν καὶ εἰς τὸν Λάκκον τοῦ Τουρίση). In the Serbian translation of the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin - in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective land is confirmed (i vinograda dva, jedinь ou Poboždi a drugy u dolu Pureševě). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated a field on a abandoned vineyard in Turičev dolь to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg ( Niva vinogradište vь Turičeve dolě, ōd rěke megju vinogradi i megju Vitanom, ta gorě na brěgь na Gomradu I. pogonь).
120211 Tarahin’cь Place The village of Tarahin’cь is mentioned in the boundary description of the village Karbinci (I skaza počьn’še ōdь Tarahin’cь putemь). The village Karbinci and the land of Kar’ba were subject of dispute between the monks of the Hilandar Monastery and the guards of the emperor. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV sent David Mihojević, the kefalija (governor) of Štip, in order to determine the boundaries of the disputed land. The Serbian emperor issued on 8th of June 1355 a chrysobull charter. He confirmed the right of the Hilandar Monastery over the village and the land with the boundaries determined by David Mihojević. The Čelnik Stanislavь donated the church of Saint Blaise (Sveti Vlasije) to the Hilandar Monastery. He endowed it with the settlement site Tarahin’ci (Tarahninci). Stanislav asked the Serbian Despot Konstantin for permission to settle the place with people, hence might be suggested, that the site was deserted. The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš confirmed the donation on the 1th June 1377. The village is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Štip in the years 1519, 1550 and 1573 (here as Trahinci and Gorno Gunovo).
117546 Tarnobo Place The Church of Saint Constantine and Helena in Ohrid possessed an unused vineyard, which was from the east side in the vicinity of the property of Phapias and bordered from the west side a road (ἔτερον χερσάμπελον τοποθεσίᾳ Ταρνόβῳ, πλησίον ἐξ ἀνατολῶν ἕως τοῦ Φαπία καὶ ἐκ δυσμῶν πλησίον ἕως τῆς ὁδοῦ). The village is mentioned in the fragmentary note on the back of the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ōhrid from 14th century (30 litrь voska i tarona što jestь u Lukočrěvě i te tamu u Trnově za adьrfato). Probably not identical with the village Trnova registered in the Defter for the Nahija Mokra under the year 1583.
6552 Tavorь Place Probably identical with the village Taurision. The Byzantine Historian Prokopios of Caesarea relates that the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. was born in the village Taurision near the fortlet Bederiana in Dardania (Ἐν Δαρδάνοις που τοῖς Εὐρωπαίοις, οἳ δὴ μετὰ τοὺς Ἐπιδαμνίων ὅρους ᾤκηνται, τοῦ φρουρίου ἄγχιστα, ὅπερ Βεδερίανα ἐπικαλεῖται, χωρίον Ταυρίσιον ὄνομα ἦν, ἔνθεν Ἰουστινιανὸς βασιλεὺς ὁ τῆς οἰκουμένης οἰκιστὴς ὥρμηται). The Bulgarian Tsar Constantine I Asen donated the village of Tavorь together with a ruined fortress (apparently ruins of the fortified settlement near Taurision), meadows and hunting grounds to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Tavorь, gradište i s polemь sь nivijemь, sь livadami, sь Ezeromь blatnimъ, sь zaběloï, sь lovišti zvěr’noïmi i roïbnimi, i sь vsěmi pravinami ih). The village of Tavorь is attested in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Monastery of St George-Gorg (niže Tavora) from 1300. The village of Tavorь is mentioned in the boundary description of the property, which belonged to the chapel (kellion) of Saint Petka and was given by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Hilandar Monastery (i na putь kako grede u Tavorь). Tavorь is registered in the Ottoman Defters for the years 1452/1453, 1467/1468 (as Tavore or Tavre), 1544/1545 and 1568/1569.
124379 Tavorь, Fishing Grounds Place The Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen (reigned 1257-1277) donated fishing grounds near the village of Tavorь to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Tavorь, gradište i s polemь sь nivijemь, sь livadami, sь Ezeromь blatnimъ, sь zaběloï, sь lovišti zvěr’noïmi i roïbnimi, i sь vsěmi pravinami ih).
6573 Tavorь, Hunting Grounds Place The Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen (reigned 1257-1277) donated hunting grounds near the village of Tavorь to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Tavorь, gradište i s polemь sь nivijemь, sь livadami, sь Ezeromь blatnimъ, sь zaběloï, sь lovišti zvěr’noïmi i roïbnimi, i sь vsěmi pravinami ih).
131902 Tavorь, Local Road, put Place The local road between Tmorane and Tavorь is attested in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) for the kellion of Sveta Petka in Tmorane in the year 1299/1300 (na putь kako grede u Tavorь).
6557 Tavorь, Ruined Fortress Place The Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen (reigned 1257-1277) donated a ruined fortress (gradište) near the village of Tavorь to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Tavorь, gradište i s polemь sь nivijemь, sь livadami, sь Ezeromь blatnimъ, sь zaběloï, sь lovišti zvěr’noïmi i roïbnimi, i sь vsěmi pravinami ih).
6569 Tavorь, Uncultivated Land Place The Bulgarian Tsar Konstantin I Asen (reigned 1257-1277) donated uncultivated land (meadows) near the village of Tavorь to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (Selo Tavorь, gradište i s polemь sь nivijemь, sь livadami, sь Ezeromь blatnimъ, sь zaběloï, sь lovišti zvěr’noïmi i roïbnimi, i sь vsěmi pravinami ih).
10513 Tetev Katun Place Around the fresco-icon representation of Christos Antiphōnētēs in the south corner of the church of Sveti Gjorgji, which is in the vicinity of the city wall of Bargala, are Slavic graffiti incised (dated to the last decades of the 13th and the first decades of the 14th century). Among others also a certain gramatik Voihna from Tetev Katun is mentioned on one graffiti (azь gramatikь voihna ōt teteva katuna).
117742 The Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Zachlumestisa Place The inscription above the entrance door to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Zachlumestisa mentions the circumstances of the endowment in the year 1361. The church was erected at the expense of the kaisar Grgur. The painted decoration of the monastery was commisioned by Gregory, the Bishop of Devol (Ἀνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρων ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τῆς ὑπεραγίας Θεοτόκου τῆς Ζαχλουμήστισας διʹ ἐξοδου τοῦ πανευτυχεστάτου καίσαρος Γούργουρα καὶ κτήτωρος ἀνιστορίθη δὲ παρὰ τοῦ πανιεροτάτου ἐπισκόπου Δεαβόλαιως καὶ πρωτοθρόνου κύρ Γρηγορίου καὶ κτῆτωρος ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλείας Στεφάνου τοῦ Οὐροσιοι μηνὶ αὐγούστῳ κεʹ. ͵ϛωξθ ἰνδ. ιδʹ).
111840 Thessalonike Place

The forged chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, which is dated in the text to January 1342, but was produced between the year 1357 and 1372, confirmed the possesion of Tzerkbistan near Melnik by the Zographou Monastery (καὶ ἀντὶ τῆς πλανηνῆς τῆς λεγομένης Λάκτεβας τῆς κατεχομένης παρὰ τῶν δηλωθέντων μοναχῶν, ἐπιλαβέσθαι καὶ κατέχειν τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν, τὴν περὶ τόπον τοῦ Μεληνίκου δημοσιακὴν ἑτέραν πλανηνὴν τὴν λεγομένην Τζέρκβησταν).

The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište).

At last quoted in the boundary delimitation of a meadow, that was located between Žabljana and Kolušine luke and between the vineyards of Vodno and of Nerezi (I postavi kraljevstvo mi zabělь dobitkomь Svetago Geōrgija ōt Žabljanь do Kolušine luke i do vodněnskih᾿ i nerěž᾿kyhь vinograd, i Verihino město i Dragijev lugь).
121170 Vetunica Place In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with the village of Vetunica with all its rights (I Vetunicu sь vsěmi pravinami).
117639 Veščani Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village Veščani with boundaries and all rights to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid (Selo Veščani s megjami i sь vsěmi pravinami). The village of Veščani is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536-1539 and under the year 1583 as Višičani or Višničani.
132360 Via Egnatia Place Gavro Škrivanić outlines in his study on the roads in medieval Serbia that the Via Egnatia connected Rome and Constantinople via Macedonia. Although a vast variety of secondary literature has been published on the Via Egnatia, some parts of its route still remain obscure, for instance the section between Ohrid and Resen. The archaeologist Viktor Lilčikj Adams has argued for a multi-layered approach to this question and stated rightly that: "[…] a serious scholarly reconstruction requires new detailed field and cabinet archaeological research with modern research methodologies and adequate sophisticated field and office equipment." The same scholar distinguishes for the section Ohrid – Resen between a summer and a winter road. The summer road led from Ohrid to Velgošti and via the mountain of Istok (1661 m altitude) and the village of Petrino to Resen, which is the most direct and shortest way between Ohrid and Resen. The winter road offers three variants: The first ran from Ohrid via Kosel, Opejnca, Zavoj, the pass of Bukovo (1207 m altitude) to Resen, which is the longest and safest section. The second variant connected Ohrid, Leskoec, circumvented the elevation of Bigla (1228 m altitude) to the South-East of Opejnca, crossed the pass of Bukovo and reached Resen via Izbište. The third led from Ohrid to Leskoec, Skrebatno, Ilino and Resen. In our case we have emphasised and embedded the summer road.
130354 Vidostinište Place The boundary description of the village Vidostinište appears in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (Ōtь Vidostiništь megě).
19284 Vilska Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of Vilska to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55. The site appears only in the later transcript (Hil. 150), which was made probably in the first decade of the 15th century. A clarification of the settlement typology is not possible, because Vilska appears in Hil. 150 as village (selo) (Selo Vilʼska i megja mu ōt Crьnaga vrьha ta na crьkvišta ta na ōbě Ōstrьvice terь na Skrьke dokle Děla teče, ōtь Dělana u Pogorь, upravь na grьbavu krušku, na Česta gumnica ōtь grьbave kruške prěko pod Gorunovicu, upravь nadь Druzetinь grobь, ōtь Druzetina groba u na Pogorь u rěku, u Caričino rěkomь, ta na Kobilo Kobilьšticomь, ta na Orlevi dělь.

11131 Viništa Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos donated in ca. 1299/1300 the village of Viništa to the Monastery of Saint Nikita (ἕτερον τόπον καλούμενον Βίνισαν, διήκοντα μέχρι τοῦ ὄχθου τοῦ Σελκόβου). ------------------------ In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian king Stefan Uroš II Milutin - in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective village is confirmed (Drugo město Viništa ōpirajušti do brěga Selkova).
120229 Vitьče Place The charter, which is mentioning the settlement site Vitьče, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I prida kraljevьstvo mi selišta zapoustěvьša ōt věka. Ime selištu: Brěstь i Suhogrьlь i Lěskovica i Vitьče). The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos in 1340/1341 confirmed the village Vitьče with hamlet as a property of the Hilandar Monastery (τὸ χωρίον τὸ Βίτζιν μετὰ τοῦ σὺν αὐτῷ ἀγριδίου, καὶ τῆς νομῆς καὶ περιοχῆς αὐτῶν).The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed again the donation of the village Vitьče, a former land of Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, with hamlet and all boundaries to the Monastery of Hilandar after May 1343 (I u Lukavici: selo Brěstь, selo Suhogrьlo, selo Lěskovica, selo Vidče/Selo Vidče i sь zaselkomь sь vsěmi megjami I pravinami). Unknown localisation.
11393 Vlach Katun near Klьčevišta Place In ca. 1299/1300 the Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320) donated a Vlach katun (κατοῦναν βλαχικήν) near the village of Klustobista to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita. The topography and the context suggest that the katun has to be localised to the North of the contemporary villages of Banjane, Kučevište and Pobožje. ------------ In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328), at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective katun is confirmed (i katunь Vlahь Svetago Nikite).
11050 Vlkovno Place The Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the village of Vlkovno to the Monastery of Hilandar. Vlkovno is listed together with Štenče as a village located in Upper Polog (I u Gornjemь Polozě selo Štenče i sь Vlьkovnōm).
118268 Vlьči Lugь Place The settlement site Vlьči Lugь in the plain of Strumica is mentioned in the charter (the so-called „zbirna hrisovulja) of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the years 1303/1304 and 1336/1340-1342/1345 for the Monastery of Hilandar. In the charter the donation by Hrelja of the settlement site with all respective area and rights was confirmed to the Monastery of Hilandar (I selište Vlьči Lugь u Strumičskomь poli sь vseju ōblastiju i pravinami).
120189 Vodoča Place The village of Vodoča is mentioned in the fragment of the Praktikon from 1320 listing the holdings of the Iberon Monastery in Palaiokastron (Veljusa) and its surroundings (ἕτερον πλησίον τοῦ Ἁγίου Ἰωάννου, τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ τῶν Βοδετζηνῶν).
19561 Voihnino selište Place The settlement site Voihnino selište appears in the boundary description of the village Morobisdos, which has been preserved in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (do Voihnina selišta; u Voihnino selište).
117656 Volino Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed two estates in or near the village Volino as a possession of the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid. One property was an acquisition of the Church, the other an endowment for the sake of salvation (I Volině město kupenica i zadušnina). The village of Volino is registered in the Defter for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583.
130291 Volujakь Place
121083 Vozarce Place The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš donated after 1376/1377 the village Vozarce to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I ešte priložihь u Tikvešu Pešteru sь ljudmi i selo Šeškovo, Gavriilovь Kamenь, Grьbavьcь, selo Vozarce). The village Vozarce is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Tikveš in the year 1519 and 1573.
120525 Vranino selo (selište) Place The land inventory of the Church of Saint Stephen in Konče, which was created after the church became a possession of the Hilandar on Mount Athos, mentions the village (i Prosěnikovo lozije na Vranine sele; niva Prosenikova na Vranine sele; niva Nogajeva na Vranine sele; Marьjanova niva na Vranine seli) and the settlement site of a certain Vrana (na Vranine selišti 11 ōrahь I tri ōskoruše i dvě črьnice i prisadь) several times. The location of both places, which are probably identical, is uncertain, but was for sure in the vicinity of the village of Konče.
116269 Vranje Place Between 1343 and 1345 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued a charter for the Monastery of Chilandar in Vranje.
18473 Vrače Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of the settlement site of Vrače (Selište Vrače) to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55. The settlement site of Vrače is probably registered as Vrač in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. The location of the settlement site is unknown. The identification with the village of Vračevce, 18 km to the North-East of Kumanovo, is questionable.
11157 Vrbo Place According to the Land Inventory Brebion a certain Obrad donated a field beneath the site of Vrbo to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for the right to have a grave (298, 83: i pod Vrьbomь niva na 6 zametь, što dade Obradь za grobь). The name of the site of Vrbo is mentioned in connection with the village Lěskovljani, nevertheless its more accurate localisation is unknown.
10990 Vrutok Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated together with his son, the Young King (mlad kralь) Uroš, the valley (village) of Vrutok near the spring of the river Vardar together with mills, lands, fields and hay harvests to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo, which owned them even before the charter was issued (i dolu na rěcě Vrut’kь: sь mliny i sь zemlomь, sь nivijemь, i sь sěnokosy što ci je i prěge bylo).
20967 Vrutok, Mills Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated together with his son, the Young King (mlad kralь) Uroš, the valley (village) of Vrutok near the spring of the river Vardar together with mills, lands, fields and hay harvests to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo, which owned them even before the charter was issued (i dolu na rěcě Vrut’kь: sь mliny i sь zemlomь, sь nivijemь, i sь sěnokosy što ci je i prěge bylo).

Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1) from the year 1346/47 (ōtь Novoseljanь drumomь na Vrьbicu i po kolniku na Gabrovo k Raičanomь i kolnikomь nadь Bunašь).
18193 Vrьdunь Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) confirmed Sebastokrator Dejan's donation of the settlement site of Vrьdunь to the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the year 1354/55 (Selište Vrьdunь).
7023 Vōdno Place King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the village of Vodno with churches, vineyards and hunting grounds to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Vōdno selo prida kraljevstvo mi, i vь njemь monastirь svetaïa Bogorodica Jeleusa sь svetymь Ḟeōdōromь nadь Vodnomь i sь svetymь Pandeleimonomь i sь svetymь Ḟeodoromь iže jestь vь Hvaštihь, jedno bo jestь selo Vodno i Nerězi, sь vinogradi, sь nivijemь, sь voděničijemь, sь sěnokosi, sь lovišti zvěrnimi i sь ribnimi, sь zaběli i sь vsěmi pravinami ihь).
123476 Western Road to the Monastery of Treskavec Place During a TIB survey in September 2008 Mihailo St. Popović documented the Western road to the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Treskavec. In this case he came across substantial remnants of the respective road, which could not be dated due to the lack of archaeological excavations and finds. Nevertheless, the Western road seemed to date to the Early Modern period and was covered by a tarmac road between 2008 and 2016.
12324 Zabel Monastery Place The church of the monastery (katholikon) was built between 1852 and 1856 on the foundations of an old church, which was erected in 1330. Тhe church of the monastery is dedicated to the Dormition of the Holy Mother of God (Uspenie na Bogorodica or Golema Bogorodica). The katholikon has three naves, a central eight-sided dome and a five-sided apse in the East (with entrances in the West, South and North). The name of the monastery comes from the medieval Serbian term for uncultivated land (zabel). The place, where the monastery is located, is in the triangle between the villages Nikuljane, Staro Nagoričane and Čelopek.
14037 Zagrad (1) Place In the year 1344/45 King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of the village of Vlьčije to the Monastery of Treskavec. In the boundary description of the village preserved in the charter also the village of Zagrad is mentioned ((Selo Vlьčie, a tomu selu megje: gde se stae Vlьčevska Rěka s Ljubovšticomь, ta po hrїdu na putь vlьčevski, grede na Mužicь, tьžde putь do Malihь Koritь, ōkolo vsěhь Malihь Koritь i gorě na Myslovrьhь, i niz brьdo na Peklišta po hrїdu k Zagradu, i dolu gde se stae Vlčevštica i Ljubovštica, gde je i počelo)
117636 Zagradčane Place The Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ohrid bought the estate of Kaliman in Zagradčane. The church received also as a donation for the sake of salvation the property of Gjurgič in Zagradčane. Both possession were confirmed by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the charter for the The Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos (U Zagradьčanehь město kupeničijemь Kalimanovo i Gjurgičevo što je dano crьkvi zadušnina). The village of Zagradčane is registered in the Defters for the Nahija Ohrid between the years 1536 and 1539 and under the year 1583.
117378 Zaplьžane Place The hamlet of Zaplьžane is mentioned in the charter (the so-called "zbirna hrisovulja") of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) from the years 1303/04 and 1336/40-1342/45 for the Monastery of Hilandar ((I pride kraljevьstvo mi crьkvь svetije Bogorodice iže vь Lojaně i sь selomь Lojanomь sь vsěmi megjami sela togo i sь vsěmi pravinami i sь vinogrady, i s nivijemь i s livadijemь i sь voděničijemь i sь zaselky Kьkrino i Zaplьžane i Kobilija Glava i Dobrutovci i Gradište, da jestь metohь svetie Bogorodice hilandarske).
117381 Zarvinci Place The village of Zarvinci appears in the Pšinski pomenik from the 15th century. In the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572 the village of Zaranovci is mentioned, which lay in the surroundings of the village of Lojane. An Ottoman distortion of the toponym Zarvinci is conceivable.
117990 Zessizan Place The King of Sicily, Charles I Anjou, issued on the 18 May 1273 a charter for the Sevastus Paulus Gropa on account of his accomplished services. Paulus Gropa obtained in the donation the control of „Zessizan" in "valle de Ebu."
18082 Zijašta Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated a tenured field in Zijašta, which was a gift of Kosta Ljutovoi to the church of Holy Mother of God in Vodno for the right to have grave, to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg. (I niva koju je dalь Kosta Ljutovoi u Zijašti na Prěsčišti lьništa PE. Pogonь: dade ju za grobь si crьkvi Matere Božije vodenske: ōt batinske vodovagje, ta nis putь koi ide u Dračevo do rěke Prěsьčke sь lukōmь).
19509 Zletovo Place The first written reference to Zletovo comes from the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Basileios II for the archiepiscopal see of Ōhrid from the year 1019. Zletovo (καὶ τὴν Σθλετοβὰν) is listed as part of the Bishopric of Morozvizd (Morobisdos). The Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski departed for the Lěsnovo Monastery (vь monastirь Lesnovskyj), from which he was released after a probationary period with the blessing of the abbot to enter a hermitage near the monastery and Zletovo (za nekoj skïtь blizь prjamo manastirь, vь dolь prjamo Zletovo). According to the Vita, the Saint Gavrilo Lesnovski also came to the aid of a local Bulgarian prince named Mihail in the fight against the Pechenegs and Cumans. Mihail had to flee from his opponents to Ratkovica (vo stranu Ratkovicu). He was able with the assistance of the saint to sidle up to the opposing general Mavragan near Rataica in Zletovo (u Slětovo) and to kill him (u Rataicě i ubi Mavragana). Zletovo was withdrawn from the sovereign authority of the Byzantine Empire in 1282/1283 during the reign of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (i Zletovu). Zletovo is mentioned in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Gračanica Monastery from 1315 (or 1321?) (i po Zletovoi). The scribe Stanislavь completed in 1330 a Slavic manuscript in the Monastery of Saint Michael the Archangel in the mountains of Lěsnovo, which was in the domain of Ovče Pole and the region of Zletovo (vь ōblasti ōvčepolьskoi vь horě zljętovstěi, v gorě lěsnovьstěi, v monastiri stgo arhistratiga Mihaila). The scribe Stanislavь finished his prologue of the manuscript in the time, when Dragoslavь ruled over the land of Zletovo as Župan (ōbdrьžjaštu horoję Zlętovьskoję županu Dra’goslavu). According to the Slavic founding inscription for the Lěsnovo monastery from 1340/41, the monastery received annualy 100 perpers from the revenue of the market in Zletovo (ōd zletovьskago trьga na godine sto perperь). The same inscription mentions the vineyards of the town of Zletovo (nadь gьrdsko lozie). However, Zletovo with its urban metochion was not included in the endowment for the Lěsnovo Monastery in 1340/41, 1346/47, or 1381. The scribe Stanislavь copied a Menaion at the request of Jovan Oliver destined for the Monastery of the Saint Michael the Archangel in Lěsnovo in 1342 in Zletovo according to the colophon of the manuscript written in Slavic language (vь horě Zletovcěi). In the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo from the year 1346/47 the erection of the monastery by the Serbian Espot Jovan Oliver is mentioned. Jovan Oliver built a church in honor of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel in the Zletovo region in Lěsnovo (sьzdati jemu hramь vь ime velikoslavnyhь i besplьtnyihь činonačelnikьь arhistratiga Mihaila i Gabrïila, vь straně že zletovьscěi rekomōje Lěsnovo; crьkvi Arhanggelu u Zletovoi; crьkvi Arhanggelu u Zletovoi). Zletovo appears in the boundary description of the hamlet/village Globica in the founding charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo from the year 1346/47 (i što se kь Zletovoi kami vali tozi Zletovu budi a što se kь Globici vali tozi crьkvьno). In addition, the charter confirms the annual revenue of 100 perpers from the market in Zletovo for the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (ōtь zletovьskago trьga). The Bishopric of Zletovo (episkopi zletovьskoi) owned also possessions in Pianitza according to the same charter. A note in the Slavic manuscript Lesnovski parenesis relates that it was written in Zletovo at the place called Lěsnovo in the Monastery of the Holy Archangel Michael in 1353 (vь zemli zljatovsьskoi, vь městě rekoměmь Lěsnovo, vь ōbiteli svetago arhistratiga Mihaila), as Arsenije was the Bishop of Zletovo. In 1354/55 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan gave permission to his nobleman Vlatko Paskačić to donate the Church of Sveti Nikola in Psača, which Vlatko had erected on the inherited property of his father, together with the appertaining metochion to the Monastery of Hilandar (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). Stefan Uroš IV Dušan enlarged Vlatko's endowment with land near Krilatica, where a certain Neōr had resided and where the Emperor had moved miners from Zletovo (I na Krilatici zemlja koja jestь ōt Trnov’ca na čimь jestь sědělь Neōrь, posadi rudare koje prěseli ōt Zljetove). The Eparchy of Zletovo was probably abolished around 1370. After 1376/77, the Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš (Ioannes Dragases) and his brother Konstantin Dragaš (Konstantinos Dragases) confirmed that the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos possessed the churches of Saint Dimitrije and Saint Nikola in Zletovo (u Zletove stgo Dimitrïa, i svety Nikola). The Serbian local ruler Konstantin Dragaš confirmed on the 15th August 1381 that the Hilandar Monastery had the right to become the annual revenue of 100 perpers from the market in Zletovo aimed for the Lěsnovo Monastery (I ōd trьga zlětovьskoga da uzima Arhanggelь lěsnovьski na vsako gōdište r. Perьperь, jakože pišetь u hrisovuli carskomь). A forged charter from the 15th century, also known as the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin concerning the settlement site Ulijare settlement from 1318, relates, among other things, about the conquest of Zletovo by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin between the years 1282 and 1284 (Zletovu). The Lěsnovo Monastery is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1570 to 1572 as Arhangel. The Lěsnovo Monastery possessed in Zletovo five watermills. Zletovo appears also in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1570 to 1572 as as Izltva.
123762 Zletovo, Major Road, kolnik Place A major road (kolnik) in the vicinity of the town of Zletovo is mentioned in the Slavonic donation inscription at the Monastery of Lesnovo from the year 1340/41 (od Peštni pravo niьz dolь do kolnika podь grdsko lozie ... podь prisadь niz kolnikь nadь gьrdsko lozie). The same road appears in the foundation charter of the Bishopric of Zletovo, which was issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) in 1346/47 (do kolnika koi prěhodi prězь dolь, i otь kolnika).
120796 Zlešovo Place The Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš took away the village Zlešovo from his nobleman Dabiživ Spandulj and donated it after 1376/1377 to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I selo Zlešovo što uzehь u vlastelina moego Dabiživa). The village Zlešovo is registered in the Defters for the Nahiye Tikveš in the year 1519 and 1573 as Zleševo.
18423 Zlokukjane Place The village of Zlokukjane was granted to the Monastery of Hilandar by the Empress Jevdokija and her son Konstantin Dragaš in the year 1378/79 (selo Zlokukjane). It is registered as Kumaničevo in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. Zlokukjane is a self-explanatory toponym, which can be translated literally as "bad house". It indicates a certain inhospitality or an abandoned (that is enchanted) ruin site.
11159 Zlovadnica Place A field called Zlovadnica and registered as a possession of the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo was situated above Treboš.

The Serbian Despot Jovan Dragaš and his brother Konstantin Dragaš confirmed after 1376/1377 the donation of the village Zubovo to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos (I prьvo selo Mokrane, i selište Crьkvišta, i selište Makrijevo, i selo Borisovo, i selo Zubovo, i selo Gabrovo, i selo Napodu). The village of Zubovo is registered in the Defters for the Nahiya Strumica in the year 1519 and 1573.

In the boundary description of Kolicko the village of Čankovo is mentioned (A vo mege sela Kolicka: ōdь gumništa Čankova prěko po srědě prokopannьnoga puta). The village of Čankovo is registered as Čaikovo in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572.

17768 Čel᾿nik Place Tsar Constantine I Asen donated 85 wells above Čel᾿nik to the monastery of Saint George-Gorg (I nadčel᾿nikomь studenecь PE. i Slivьštica ōt izvora eija…). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirmed the aforementioned donation of 85 wells above Čelnik to the monastery of Saint George-Gorg (I da kraljevstvo mi ōt rěke Sliv᾿štice četvrьtu čestь na potrěbu monastiru i Bani, i nad Čelnikom PI studen᾿cь). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin granted also a field under the road, which went through Čelnik near Črna Gora till the river Serava, to the monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Druga niva nis putь koi grede prěs Čelnikь u Črьnu Goru do rěke Serave).
11056 Čerěnce Place According to the The Land Inventory Brebion a certain Manoilo from Banic donated a field under Čerěnce, not far away from the field of lady Zoia, to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin of Htětovo (Niva pod Čerěn᾿cemь blizь kira Zoine nive, koju dade kir Manoilo ōtь Banicь, na 13 zametь).
118189 Četirьci Place The village of Četirьci is mentioned in the Vodičnički pomenik from the 16th century. It is also registered as Čtrči in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 and from the years 1570 to 1572.
120618 Črьna Gora Place The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) issued charters for the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica in the years 1349 and 1354/55 respectively. The location of the village of Arhiljevica is unclear. It might be located in Preševo (now Serbia) or in the Črьna Gora in the triangle of the places Belanovce, Domanovci and Izvor. Črьna Gora (vь Črьnoi Gori) is mentioned in the Vita of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V (reigned 1355-1371) written by the Serbian Patriarch Pajsije. It reports that Stefan Uroš V and his mother Jelena completed the Church of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska after the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Dušan. A Church of the Holy Mother of God in Črьna Gora above Žegligovo is attested in the Serbian genealogies (rodoslovi) and annals (u Črьmьnyje Gory, vyše Žegligova; eius vero mater aedificavit Ecclesiam in Nigro Monte, supra Segligovo). This church is probably identical with the aforesaid Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska. The Ottoman Sultan Murad I (reigned 1360-1389) might have crossed the Črьna Gora on his march against the Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović before the battle on the Kosovo Polje (Kosovo Field) in 1389. In 1409 Evdokija Balšić commissioned the monk Gerasim in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in Črьna Gora near Skopje to write the manuscript of the Dialogues (Paterik) by Gregory the Great. In the spring and summer of 1413 the two Ottoman pretenders to the throne Mehmed and Musa fought for supremacy on the Balkan Peninsula. Mehmed was supported by the Serbian Despot Stefan Lazarević (reigned 1389-1427). In the course of the military operations, Musa initially stayed in the Ovče Pole (in the Ragusan sources called Ovcepogle). Then, Mehmed and Stefan Lazarević crossed together with their troops the Črьna Gora (Prěšьdьše že Črьmnu Goru) and reached the Ovče Pole (kь Ovьčju polju), where Djuradj Branković (reigned 1427-1456), Stefan's nephew, took command over the Serbian forces. The scribe Vladislav Gramatik resided between 1457 and 1497 in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska. In 1479 he compiled a liturgical book (panegyrikon) in the Monastery at the foot of the Črьna Gora in the region of Žegligovo (vъ podkrilii Črъnye gory). The Črьna Gora is mentioned in the colophones of Vladislav Gramatik and Dimitrij Kantakuzin from the years 1469 (vь vьsečьstněmь monastiri prěsvetьje bogorodice suštee iže vь podkrilii Črьnьje Gory) and 1473 (vь vьsečьstněmь monastiri prěsvetьje vladičice naše bogorodice i prisnoděvi Marie, suštee iže vь podkrilii Črьnьje Gory, v prědělě Žegligovcěm). In 1519 a hierodeacon named Mina wrote a triodion for the Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in Klustobista in the solitude of Vunešь at the foot of the Črьna Gora (poduvesie Črъnie Gory vъ pustynju naricemuju Vunešъ). The Vuneški pomenik (15th century or 16-17th centuries) was kept in the small Church of Sveti Nikola in Vunešь at the foot of the Črьna Gora above the village of Ljubanci (pomenikъ hramu stgō i slavnaagō arhierea i čjudtvorca hva Nikōli gljemii Vunešь vь pōdkrili Črьmnie gōry vyše sela Ljubancii).
17776 Črьnče Place The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin donated the field of Akropolites under a road towards the castle Črьnče to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Niva Akropolitova nis putь koi grede na grad Črьnče di protopope Desisava na Podu). He also granted a field under the fortress Črьnče near the possessions of the butcher Tihomir to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg (Niva pod Črьnčemь blizь Tihomira Makelara, do Rada Trьpezice i do puta koi grede u selište). In the boundary description of Vodno also Črьnče and the road to Črьnče is mentioned (A mege vodьnьske: poiemše ōd voděnice bistijaritove Kutrevice, ta na Mramorь pod visь, ta putemь koi grede na Črьnče, ta na Črьnče,...) The fortress was restored the fourth time in between the 11. and 13. century.
132314 Črьvena polěna Place The charter, which is mentioning the pašište Črьvena polěna, is a forged document for the Monastery of Chilandar attributed to King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. It summarises the possessions of Chilandar and confirms earlier donations amongst others in the town of Štip and its surroundings. The document was created in the years 1371 to 1378 during a legal dispute with the Monastery of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos based on the existing charter of King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 1330s. The charter is attesting a state of possessions of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip, which was built by the Serbian nobleman Stefan Hrelja Dragovol, as they existed in the 1330s. The charter also attests the resettlement of abandoned settlements with people from foreign lands by the Serbian nobleman Hrelja (I planina Ōgraždenь i pašište Črьvena polěna. Sinorь Vasilica, sinōrь Stlьbica i Drakšanь i Petrovo i Slivnica i Knjeginja na brězničsky putь i na Frugopolovo selište).

117320 Žegligovo Place According to the Life of Saint Prohor Pčinjski (11th century) Prohor settled in a small cave in the deserted area of Nagoričino in Žegligovo (vь Žegligovskoj straně). The Saint met the later Byzantine Emperor Romanos IV Diogenes (reigned 1068-1071), who was hunting in Žegligovo. Between 1300 and 1318/21 a certain anagnost Radin from Nagoričino in Žegligovo (anagnosta Radina Nagoričanina izь Žegligova) wrote a gospel for the priest Zagoranin in Sušica. According to the Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops, written by Archbishop Danilo II and his successors, the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (reigned 1321-1331) gathered his army in the forefront of the Battle of Velbužd in the first half of 1330 on a field called Dobrič, located in today's South-Eastern Serbia at the confluence of the rivers Južna Morava and Toplica. He intended to confront the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) at this place. As messengers informed him that the Bulgarian Tsar had reached the castle of Zemen in the upper course of the river Strymon (Struma), at that time the border between the Serbian Kingdom and the Second Bulgarian Empire, he set his army in march and first moved to Nagoričino, where he prayed in the Church of Saint George (priide vь monastirь svoi kь svetomu mučeniku Hristovu Georьgiju Nagoričьskomu). After the Serbian victory at the Battle of Velbužd near today's Kjustendil on 28 July 1330, Stefan Dečanski captured Michael Šišman and brought him to Žegligovo (aduxere eum in Segligovo), where he died and was buried in the Church of Saint George in the village of Nagoričino (et sepulchro datus est in Ecclesia sancti Georgii in pago Gorichina). In the year 1349 (u zemli žegligovьskoi) and 1354/55 respectively (u zemli žegligovьskoi) the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) mentions Žegligovo in his charters for Church of the Presentation of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Arhiljevica. The localisation of Arhilevjica remains unsolved. It might have lain near Preševo (today in Serbia) or in the Skopska Crna Gora in the triangle of the villages of Belanovce, Domanovci and Izvorь. In the Serbian Annals a church in the Skopska Crna Gora above Žegligovo is mentioned (u Črьmьnyje Gory, vyše Žegligova; eius vero mater aedificavit Ecclesiam in Nigro Monte, supra Segligovo). The same source often conflates Žegligovo and Nagoričino in one unit (I u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crьkov svetago velikomučenika Georgïa; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgïa; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago mučenika Georgïa; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crьkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgïa; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgïa). Žegligovo is mentioned by the Serbian Janissary Konstantin Mihailović (15th century) in his memoirs ("and as he [scilicet the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V] reached the land of Constantine, he pitched his tent in the field of Žegligovo" and "as the Sultan Mehmed [II] arrived near the field called Žegligovo on the border of Rascia"). The term "Land of Constantine" relates to the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš, who ruled over Žegligovo in the second half of the 14th century and was therefore called "Žegligovac". Žegligovo served probably as a deployment area for the Ottoman Sultan Murad I (reigned 1360-1389) before the Battle of Kosovo in June 1389 against the Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović (reigned 1373-1389). The Byzantine Short Chronicles report that the Ottoman Sultan Bāyezīd I (reigned 1389-1402) handed over the relics of Saint Hilarion of Moglena (11th/12th centuries) to Konstantin Dragaš in 1394, who resided in Žegligovo (ὁποῦ ἐκάθετον εἰς τὸν Ὀζίγλοβο). Thereupon, Konstantin brought the relics to the Monastery of Sarandaporь. In the year 1395 Konstantin Dragaš fell in the Battle of Rovine against the Wallachian Voivode Mircea the Elder (reigned 1386-1418). In the year 1479 the scribe Vladislav Gramatik compiled a liturgical book (Panegyrikon) in the Monastery of Saint Bogorodica Črьnogorska at the foot of the Črьna Gora (Skopska Crna Gora) in the region of Žegligovo (vь prědělě žegligovscěm). The humanist and diplomat Felix Petančić (ca. 1455-after 1517) refers to Žegligovo as "Gegligove". In 1512 Ottoman troops pillaged Žegligovo and Ovče Pole (To lěto plěniše Turci Žegligovo, Ovče Polě). In the summer of 1550 Klementios was appointed Metropolitan of Skopje, Vranje and Žegligovo (μητρόπολιν Σκοπίου, Βράνιας καὶ Ζεγληγόβου). Žegligovo is mentioned in the Vodičnički pomenik from the 16th century. The župa of Žegligovo roughly included the area to the South of Preševo (today in Serbia), to the West of Slavište, to the North of Ovče Pole and the valley of the river Vardar and to the East of the Skopska Crna Gora.
