    between 75 B.C. and 4 B.C.
    This was an ancient coin collector's stash. Coins of all the different players in Roman politics at the time!

    I read about this recently...So awesome a find.

    I think they need to glean whatever research they can about the hoard info, and then repatriate them into my collection.

    Mwuhahahaha!

    I did find it funny (in the linked article) the mention of “Augustus Young” - I’ve yet to see this moniker before.

    Perhaps they were thinking of this guy?
