Shipwreck – the Coin Hoard of the Six Emperors
Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek presents a massive hoard of coins from the Mediterranean and parts of the wreckage discovered by divers just off the coast of Sicily.
During a violent storm in 1991 coins and many other artefacts dating from the Roman Empire, such as pottery vessels and bronze weights, were whirled up from the seabed a short distance from the ancient city of Camarina on the most south-easterly point of Sicily. The coin hoard will now be exhibited for the first time outside Italy
The exhibition will present more than 4000 Roman bronze coins and a selection of other finds from the shipwreck, all of which date from the latter half of the third century AD.
