Image result for 22,000 coin found egypt

(Fox News) – Archaeologists in Egypt have unearthed a 2,200-year-old gold
coin depicting the ancient King Ptolemy III, an ancestor of the famed
Cleopatra.

The coin, which bears the image of the King on one of its faces, was
discovered during the excavation of a large Greco-Roman building at the
San El-Hagar archaeological site in Northern Egypt.

Ptolemy III ruled Egypt in the 3rd century B.C. Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities
says that the coin was made during the reign of King Ptolemy IV in memory
of his father. Ptolemy IV
reigned from 180 to 145 B.C.

The Ministry explained that archaeologists also found pottery vessels,
terracotta statues, bronze tools, a stone fragment engraved with
hieroglyphs and a small statue of a ram at the site in the Nile Delta.

The value of the coin has not yet been revealed.
