     The earliest traces of human settlements in this area relate to the Paleolithic Coins minted by the Dacians during the 3rd century BC, copying the design of  Thracian tetradrachmon issued by Lysimachus, have been discovered here. A small Romancastrum was built sometime in the 3rd century AD in the vicinity of present-day Pitești (part of a protection system forRoman Dacia and Moesia).During the Age of Migrations, the Pitești area was, according to historian Constantin C. Giurescu, the site of trading between Vlachs and Slavs, which, in his opinion, was the origin of Târgul din Deal (“The Market on the Hill”), a separate locality.

      The first recorded mention of Pitești itself was on May 20, 1386, when Wallachian Prince Mircea I granted a gristmill in the area to Cozia Monastery.Pitești was subsequently one of the temporary residences of Wallachian Princes. Due to its positioning on the junction of major European routes (and its proximity to the Saxon markets in Hermannstadt, Transylvania), the city originally developed as an important commercial center.By the late 14th century, it became home to a sizable Armenian community.

     At the time, the locality was only extending on the left bank of the Argeș, and gradually expanded over the river, reaching the hill slopes to the west(in the 19th century, it completely absorbed Târgul din Deal). While Pitești was commonly designated as a high-ranking town, a village of Pitești was still mentioned as late as 1528, which led some historians to conclude that the village and urban area coexisted within the same boundaries.
