Rare Roman coin – Or not !

Archaeologists working alongside Highways England who are improving the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon discovered an incredibly rare Roman Bronze coin minted for a little known Roman emperor.

There was no mention if they were using metal detectors to search.
This rare coin shows Ulpius Cornelius Laelianus, who reigned Rome for about two months in AD269 before his untimely death.
So far Archaeologists claim this Roman coin is only the second coin of it’s type to have been found in the UK.
Perhaps they should look on Google Images, it would appear there are a few more in circulation !
