    A coin from the Bar Kokhba Revolt, dating from AD 132 (the first year of the revolt), was found at the bottom of cliffs currently undergoing excavation by Israeli archaeologists in the Judean Desert.

    Israel is the only country I know where the random (or scientific) find of an ancient bronze coin is announced in the press. And if it's an aureus, it makes headlines.
