When a glass is half full…

An ancient Roman aureus… Unfortunately just one half of it… But we should always “see a glass half full rather than half empty”… Maybe somewhere in the woods the other half of this coin also hopes to see the daylight when someone finds it))

Anyway we can clearly see a quadriga on it, such an image was often minted on coins in those times. We could assume that this aureus used to look like this before it lost its half:

Besides, the woods were generous that day and there were other gifts, too:

But any gold find is great even if it is just a half of an aureus!

These finds were made with the help of a Garrett ACE 250 with the Mars Goliath coil and Mars Universal Shaft.
