Bonisoli hails discovery of ancient Roman coins


Milan, September 10 - Culture Minister Alberto
Bonisoli said Monday that the discovery of a big cache of golden
ancient Roman coins uncovered in a vase in Como was a landmark
find, saying the dig it comes from will generate more treasures.
"For me it's more than an an exceptional case," Bonisoli told
a news conference in Milan.
"We are not yet able to understand it, but it's a message
from our ancestors".
He said that the site held at least three more objects.
"We have certainly caught of a glimpse of a gold bar and two
other objects," Bonisoli said.
"But at the moment we have only removed the first layer of
around 27 coins weighing around 4 grams, minted in the period of
emperors Honorius, Valentinian III, Leo I and Libius Severus, so
they do not come after 474 AD".
