Roman Coin Treasure Buried Beneath  Park – Hutton Pulitzer #GoXplrr

The Seville Archaeological Museum said the construction workers came across 19 amphoras containing thousands of unused bronze and silver-coated coins dating from the 3rd and 4th century.

Workers laying pipes in a southern Spanish park have unearthed a 1,300lbs (600kg) trove of Roman coins in what culture officials say is a unique historic discovery.

The coins are believed to have been recently minted at the time they were buried and had probably been stored to pay soldiers or civil servants.
