Rare gold coins found in Israeli city of Caesarea

A collection of gold coins believed to have been hidden 900 years ago has been discovered by archaeologists in the ancient Israeli port city of Caesarea.

The rare cache was found - along with a single gold earring - in a bronze pot between stones in the side of a well.

The hoard of 24 coins appears to have been hidden by someone who hoped to retrieve it, but never returned.

Archaeologists say the owner may have died when the city's inhabitants were massacred by a Crusader army in 1101.

The discovery, which specialists have identified as belonging to the end of the 11th Century, was made during an excavation and conservation project at the Caesarea World Heritage site.

It was found between two stones in the side of a well at a house in a neighbourhood dating to the Abbasid and Fatimid periods.



"The cache is a silent testimony to one of the most dramatic events in the history of Caesarea; the violent conquest of the city by the Crusaders," archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority said.
