Amphorae found 600 kilos of bronze Roman coins during construction work in Seville

Coins, probably made in the East, are "brillant uncirculated", ie, that have not circulated and therefore have no wear.
The amphorae found during construction work parallel to a road connection and is a unique find in Spain and perhaps in the world.
The director of the Archaeological Museum of Seville smonedas believes that "could be worth millions of euros surely".
Tomares City Council says the finding is "timely" and that the work will continue, although the Board will ask its closure.
Amphorae, plural, 19 of them.
They were intentionally hidden a metre deep, under a layer of rubble. And they belong to the tetrarchy mostly in "mint state" (plus age).
Curiously, it says that these amphorae are not the usual "wine or olive vessel" type.
Nothing much to add, but interesting to see them "live".
Ummm, hey I'm not 100% sure what the coin-rules are, but if it's okay with you guys then I'm gonna try to get one of those sweet jugs of goodness to share among ourselves, eh?
... what could go wrong?
I speak Spanish and this is pretty accurate. But instead of closure they are just asking that construction work be halted.
@monetarium, I like the avatar, my family is from there.
Google is a most dear friend.
What date of find was given?
In Kiwiti's video, it said 284-411 Dc, I'm gonna assume dc means ad in this case.
