Hundreds of Roman gold coins found in basement of old theater . Archaeologists are studying a valuable trove of old Roman coins found on the site of a former theater in northern Italy. The coins, hundreds of them, date back to the late Roman imperial era and were found in a soapstone jar unearthed in the basement of the Cressoni Theater in Como, north of Milan. "We do not yet know in detail the historical and cultural significance of the find ," said Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli in a press release. "But that area is proving to be a real treasure for our archeology. A discovery that fills me with pride." The coins were discovered last week, according to Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, and were transferred to the Mibac restoration laboratory in Milan where archaeologists and restorers will examine them. A press conference is scheduled for Monday, when more details will be announced. Source : news5cleveland website
