    Bronze, silver, gold and iron in one day!

    Hi guys.
    Because of the great results with Deus on both old sites that I have been searching with Garret, yesterday I decided to research one of my first sites. I have searched twice with at pro there, 5x8 coil bringing home one silver Drachm and one silver Denarius.

    Getting there

    I spent two hours finding almost nothing then deus was screaming in my ears. I thought about a can and ignored it. I took two steps forward but I turned back.
    This beautiful Follis came out. This was the one that showed me which way to go.

    After the first three other follis cane out. It was already time for lunch and I stopped to eat something. Just two meters from were I was laying I had a little surprise. First i thought it was the beer.

    This site was great because of the diversity of the coins. Roman, Byzantine, Greek and maybe even Ottoman's on the same soil. Bronze,silver and gold all together.

    Justinian I, 527-65 AD, bronze follis, SB-207, bust facing / M, CON year XXIIII,
    Justinian I, a follis of the type listed in the Sear Byzantine catalogue as number 168. "ANNO XIIII" is the date, the 14th year of the emperor's reign (AD 540-541). The obverse inscription is actually supposed to say "DN IVSTINIANVS PF AVG", though by the time this emperor came to power hardly anyone in the Empire could speak Latin anymore, including the people who made the coins, so the legends tend to get a bit mixed up

    It was a very hard day but for sure was worth it. This time I had more quality than quantity.
    Thanks for watching.

    Your right Benjamin. I was thinking to ask my money back.
    I'm sure i have passed over the big Follis with the 5x8 coil of AtPro without any results.
    Thanks mate

    Thanks pepperj. I didnt post a pic because it's a simple ring but here it is. I don't dig every single signal because it's impossible. I would need months cleaning just a part of this area that's why i think it was pure luck.

    My, my, my
    With those kinds of results,, I would be tempted to dig all signals. I'll bet there are some great targets underneath the trash. I love my DEUS but in an area like that, with lots of iron and trash , I would have to go over it with my CTX.
    Congratulations on your finds and I know there is more to come.
