Ancient Roman Coins Found in Portugal (4,500 of them, 4th century)

Wednesday, October 10, 2007


Archaeologists excavating a site in northeastern Portugal discovered 4,500 ancient Roman coins tucked away inside a wall.


The bundle of 4,526 copper and bronze coins was hidden inside the wall of a 4th century blacksmith's home, said Antonio Sa Coixao, who is leading excavation in Coriscada.


"It looks like someone was trying to hide them but they never went back to get them," Sa Coixao said Wednesday.




Which explains why there are so many Roman coins on Ebay
