Hundreds of ancient Roman gold coins have been discovered on the site of an old theatre in Como in northern Italy, the Ministry of Culture said. The coins date back to the end of the Roman Empire in the 5th century and were found in a kind of stone urn in the Cressoni theatre basement, not far from the site of the ancient city of Novum Comum. According to Italian media, the coins could be worth millions of euros.

I'm guessing Ancient History Encyclopedia doesn't get to use the "Breaking News" label very often.
