18th Century oins of Russian Officers Found in Azov

Archeologists have found a treasure of 18 coins of the 18th century in the center of Azov town in the Rostov Region.

      “The treasure was bigger, but some part of it was destroyed during construction works. We have found 11 rubles and seven fifty-kopeck pieces”, - the head of archeology department of the Azov Memorial Estate Andrey Maslovsky reported to Interfax agency on Monday.

      According to him, Peter the Great, Yekaterina the Second, Peter the Second and Anna Ioannovna are depicted in the coins.

      “The latest coins date back to 1734. It indicates that, most likely, the treasure was buried during the stay of the Russian army in Azov from 1736 to 1742”, - Mr. Maslovsky said.

      He added that the treasure was allegedly buried in 1736, when the siege of the fortress was conducted. It was found in the area line of the Russian camp, which had surrounded the Azov fortress.

      “The coins could be hidden by some of the guard officers, who soon died of epidemic. At that time the Russian army lost few soldiers in military operations, but lots of soldiers were lost because of the epidemic”, - Mr. Maslovsky pointed out.
