‘Scrap metal’ piece is rare Roman coin


Recommended Posts

A ROMAN coin buried in the depths of Malmesbury's Athelstan Museum has been unearthed.


Volunteers auditing the museum's collection discovered the small, corroded piece of metal last week.


Unsure of what it was, they sent it to Wiltshire County Council's conservation department, where it was identified as a Roman Denarius coin.
