In the Netherlands, found a treasure of Roman gold coins

Experts believe that this state was buried along with the Frankish commander in the second half of the fifth century, when the region was part of the Western Roman Empire, which collapsed in 476 CE.

Some of the 41 gold coins found in Lienden, near Venendal, bear the image of Majorian, one of the last rulers of the empire, who ruled for four years from 457 AD. “On this basis, we believe that the treasure was buried in 460,” said Nico Roimans, professor of archeology at the University of Vriigo in Amsterdam.
