Nikolay Petrovich Rumyantsev (1754-1826) — Earl, statesman of the Russian Empire, a patron and a collector. The first half of the 1820s, the beginning of his numismatic activities. In a letter dated 7 November 1821 from Gomel belonged to him, he said: "On these days is among the most Gomel from the earth dug a pot of silver coins... All the same Onet and years one thousand six hundred twenty, coins of the Polish king Sigismund".
