Rarest Treasure of Roman Coins Found near Kaliningrad

Archeologists from the Archeology Institute, RAS have found a unique treasure of Roman coins of the 1st-2nd centuries AC in the Kaliningrad Region.

      The discovered treasure has already been handed over to the Kaliningrad Regional History and Art Museum.

      The treasure is comprised of 100 Roman bronze coins with portraits of the Antonine Dynasty emperors - from Trajan (r. 98–117 A.D.) known for his extensive conquests to eccentric Commodus (r. 177–92 A.D.), whose ascension to the throne marked the end of “the five kind emperors’ era”.

      It is a mystery how the treasure of Roman coins came to the Zelenograd District of the Kaliningrad Region, archeologists point out. It was probably hidden there by some merchant in the late 2nd or early 3rd centuries AC.
