"2 lei hill"

People say that an old man was trying to climb this hill, but he was very tired. So he started to stop all vehicles and carts that were going up. He said that who ever will take him to the top of the hill will get 2 lei from him!
By Danut Zaharia
Some say that "doi lei" was the price to lend an extra pair of oxen for a chariot to get over this hill.
By Roxana Ciobanica
I also knew that 2 lei (2 coins) was the price asked by some thieves as a protection fee from chariot owners or travellers so as not to get hijacked.
By Ovidiu Bisog

“It is said that it was hard to climb the hill with a large weight in the cart, so for 2 lei coins, people were

helping by supplying an extra horse or a bull to pull the cart"

By Violetta Irimia
