5. They Found Ancient Roman Coins Made of Gold
The Cressoni Theatre in Como, Italy, opened in 1807 and closed in 1997. At that point, it was supposed to be razed to the ground. However, the Ministry of Culture determined that the site held a potential treasure trove of ancient artifacts, and in 2018, an archeological team discovered these gold coins. They were stacked neatly in rows, similarly to how banks roll coins nowadays. Archeologists who have studied the find believe that it belonged to a Roman bank rather than a private individual. Furthermore, the coins date from the fifth century — about the time Rome fell.
