Archaeologists working in Como, Italy, a town north of Milan, made a surprising discovery in September 2018. They were doing excavations in the basement of a theater that had been condemned and was about to be torn down. Then they spotted a soapstone jar. Inside the jar were 300 gold coins. The jar dates from 300 to 500 CE, the late Roman Imperial period. The coins are engraved with the faces of Roman emperors. It’s estimated that the find is worth millions of euros.
