A real treasure has been discovered in Hungary – nearly 7,000 coins that date mainly from the 15th-16th centuries. Among the coins, there is also a Roman object.

In the years 2019-2020, the Hungarian museum “Ferenczy Múzeumi Centrum” conducted archaeological research at a medieval site in Újlengyel in the Pest commune. In the first year, only 150 coins were found, in December 2020 a new set of coins was discovered. For example, it was in a broken pot, not far from the previous finds.

The finds are mainly coins of Maciej Corvinus (1458-1490), Władysław II Jagiellończyk (1490-1516) and Ludwik II Jagiellończyk (1516-1526). Researchers estimate that the treasure was probably buried around 1526 in connection with the Battle of Mohacz.

Moving on to Roman artefacts – among the coins was the denarius Emperor Lucius Verus, co-ordinator of Marcus Aurelius in 161-169 CE.
