    Only your first link will work. Who's to say some kid may have taken their parent's coin collection down to the beach and lost them? That's one of my biggest problem with the Oak Island saga. Just because you find something old, doesn't mean it was dropped there back in the day and/or by who you think may have done it.

    Yeah. If one just thinks about this, it seems highly unlikely. Who knows, perhaps a Roman ship made it here. BUT, the odds of one guy finding 7 coins "washed up on the beach"...nah.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    I knew someone who claimed to have salted the beach with old but worthless coins. Many years ago.
    He told me he'd pick a busy beach with tourists. He then would then " find" the coins. The tourist would ask what he found. He'd play dumb and wait for them try to to take advantage of him and offer a few bucks.
    He'd make a few bucks that way. Is the story true I don't know.

    If u click on blue letter ''treasure hunter'' in first article it will send u to the original news. I also don't think they come from shipwreck since Tampa is simply not on the right side for Europe shipwreck. In my country we occasionally find roman coin on the beach but never more than one piece and they r in better conditions than this ones, but Roman presence is ordinary thing in here.
    My friend last week after storm just find one roman folis at beach along with 14 pieces of gold jewellery. On other beach one russian coin collector for every 6th of May throw in water few hundred roman coins every year in the sea, so yes it is highly unlikely that they come with roman ship on that beach in Tampa.
