The photo seems not to show the reported find : 40-50 gold or silver coins are described, conjectured to have been the contents of a leather purse that has not survived, but the picture seems to show sestertii or middle bronzes, more than 40-50 of them, far too many to fit in a normal purse!

Hi Curtis,

That is because it is a "file photo" which appears to have been taken from an earlier find. If you use Google Reverse image search you will see the other articles it was used in.

I am constantly surprised by how much some people can fit into their purse! I am sure some things are constant, no matter which millennium...

Not exactly coin related but I thought I would share. It is not common to get archaeological news concerning Australia.

Globally Significant Archaelogical Discovery in Australia:
