  Roman Silver Coin Hoard Found in Romania

A treasure hunter from Mure? County has discovered a hoard of silver coins dating back to the time of the Romans. The more than 300 coins were found in a clay pot, buried in the earth of the forest of Sângeru de Padure, which the man had been scanning with a metal detector.

The 43-year-old treasure hunter, Narcis Car?i?, is an impassioned history lover and enjoys spending his free time searching for archaeological remains. In fact, the discovery he just made is not his first. About a year and a half ago, Mr. Car?i? obtained his detectorist's license, and since then he has made three archeological discoveries. The first time he discovered four tetradrachms, large silver coins originating in Ancient Greece which were the standard coin of the Antiquity. The second discovery was a pot full of coins dating from Antiquity which he found in the Ernei area of Mure? county. And now this hoard from the forest of Sângeru de Padure.

After inspecting the pot filled with coins, while making sure not to move it from its current position in the ground, Mr. Car?i? contacted the Mure? County Museum.
