    300-year-old gold coins found near Bellary

    BELLARY: Over 200 ancient gold coins, believed to be 300-years old, were today unearthed during a drainage work near a house at nearby Sandur.

    A total of 213 antique gold coins, depicting the images of Lord Shiva, his consort Parvati and the Moon, were found by the house owner while taking up drainage work on his land, police said.

    The gold coins also bear a brief description in Devanagiri script.

    The coins were seized after the house owner informed the police, they said.

    Archaeological officials from Hampi are expected to reach Sandur to conduct numismatic studies, police said.

    Something tells me that the house owner found much more than 213 coins... if that is the case he is a clever man. He is plain stupid if he deposited everything he found with the police..

    Don't worry soon it will be found in Italian museum.
