Silver coins found at Odeon site in Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Published on November 29th, 2012 | by Admin


Forty Roman coins have been found in the forum complex at the Odeon site in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

The coins were said by archaeologists to have been minted during the Severan dynasty, while ruled from 193 to 235 CE and variously feature images of four different emperors.

The Odeon site, dating from the second to fifth centuries, is the location of a Roman-era theatre, and is smaller in scale than Plovdiv’s well-known ancient theatre in the city’s Old Town.
