An amazing discovery has been made in Jerusalem by Archeologists as reports indicate that a hidden collection of ancient bronze coins that may have belonged to Christians fleeing invading Persian forces. The coins discovered date back to the late Byzantine era of 7th century CE, and were discovered by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) in an excavation that began in June 2016.
Excerpt From The Christian Post:
The uncovered coins could be easily dated because they bear the images of the Emperor’s under which they were made. In this case they bore the icons of emperors Justinian (483-565 AD), Maurice (539-602 CE) and Phocas (547-610 CE). They were all minted in present day Turkey. Each coin shows the image of the emperor in military dress, carrying a cross, while the reverse of the coin shows its denomination.
