Krzysztof Kozłowski was using his metal detector to search for artifacts in Poland when he came across something extraordinary.
Buried near the Vistula River in Józefów, a silver coin with serrated edges and inscriptions on its front and back was unearthed by Kozlowski, according to a May 4 Facebook post from Lublin Provincial Conservator of Monuments.
Now, experts have identified the small coin as a 2,000-year-old Roman denarius, officials said. Using the coin’s inscriptions, it was determined that the relic dates to about 81 B.C.
On the front side of the coin is a bust of Ceres, the Roman goddess of vegetation and harvest, according to the conservator. Below Ceres’ chin is an unspecified object, but experts think it could have been a cornucopia or ear of corn.
