Rare Treasure of Byzantine Gold Discovered in Southern Russia

A mission of archeologists excavating the Krasnodar Krai province in Southern Russia announced it unearthed a treasure of gold Byzantine coins dating back to the 10th century, during which the region was known as the "Taman Peninsula."


The treasure was hidden in a ceramic pot found in the lands of an ancient residential area abandoned since the 11th century. It includes 28 metal coins made of pure gold featuring the faces of Byzantine emperors.


Scientists believe that one of those emperors had hidden the treasure at the end of the 10th century or with the beginning of the 11th century, after the emergence of the Tamutarakan princedom (a Russian entity that settled in the region with the end of the 10th century).
