Pot full of golden coins from the fifth century excavated

Como – the end of the rainbow must be in Como. In that place is, during excavations in the historic old town, a Roman amphora with countless pure gold coins found.

The lucky gold strike in Como

The value of the find is priceless, so let experts know the local medium QuiComo. Luca Rinaldi, superintendent of archaeology in the province of Como: “A precise value is not. These are non-marketable valuables. It is certainly a exceptional discovery and therefore of inestimable value.”

The coins found date from the fifth century after Christ, the late keizertijdperk and are in exceptionally good condition. The site is carefully examined for even more hidden treasures. The excavation was part of a project for the Como of a new centre.
