Rare Roman Coin with Feeding She-Wolf Unearthed in Veliky Novgorod

Specialists of the Archeology Institute, RAS have found a rare 4th century Roman coin in Veliky Novgorod.

      It has the image of a she-wolf feeding the babies Romulus and Remus, and the goddess Roma, the patroness of Rome.

      The expedition chief Oleg Oleynikov told about it.

      “It is a really unique find. It dates back to the 4th century, the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine the First, who turned Christianity into a dominating religion. Possibly, its owner kept the coin as a Christian relic” - Mr. Oleynikov explained.

      According to the scientist, within one and a half months of the expedition taking place in the center of Veliky Novgorod, the archeologists have unearthed about 4 thousand artefacts, including armory, jewelry, coins, stamps of Novgorod governors and six fragments of birchbark manuscripts.
