Over 650 priceless Roman-era coins have been unearthed in an ancient city in western Turkey, researchers said Wednesday.

“These 651 silver coins, from the era of Emperor Augustus, constitute a very special and unique collection,” Elif Ozer, senior archaeologist supervising the dig in the ancient city of Aizanoi, told Anadolu Agency.

Of the coins, 439 are standard Roman silver denarius coins, and 212 are cistophor coins from the ancient Greek city of Pergamom, she added.

The ancient Roman coins were found in a jug that was protected by terracotta plates. (Aizanoi Excavation Directorate /Anadolu Agency)
