According to the user of the forum, Reibert.info “Alter Mann”, this treasure of silver coins of the Roman Empire was found by him in the forest with the help of a metal detector completely by accident. All coins were scattered on the territory of the one meter.

The Romans stayed in the territory, which two thousand years later will become Ukraine, long enough to please today archaeologists and treasure hunters with numerous finds of their coins and weapons and ammunition. However, Roman silver denarii (coins) were readily accepted for payment by various peoples and far from imperial borders. So modern numismatists are satisfied – every year on Ukrainian fields with the help of metal detectors are founf hundreds, if not thousands of coins with profiles of Roman emperors.

This treasure was found about six months ago in a forest on the territory of Western Ukraine and belonged to the ancient Roman merchants who walked through the territory of modern Ukraine along trade routes to the Baltic Sea with various goods.

The influence of the Roman Empire spread far beyond its borders. Tribes and peoples not even neighboring the empire fell into the orbit of this great country. Roman culture and glory conquered hearts no worse than Roman swords conquered bodies. The barbaric leaders wanted to live like patricians, the kings imitated emperors … That is why the coins of the Roman Empire are found by treasure hunters with metal detectors far beyond the borders of the Rome Empire.
