A haul of valuable coins issued by Roman general Mark Antony have been 
discovered in a Welsh field - more than 2,000 years after they were buried.

The coins were found in afield in the small village of Wick. "The 
hoard's find spot is only a mile as the crow flies from that of another 
second century silver hoard found in 2000. "Together the hoards point to 
a prosperous coin-using economy in the area in the middle of the second 
century." The three silver denarii were part of a 91-coin haul 
comprising of currency issued by Roman rulers spanning 200 years.
