Ancient Coins are Relatively Common
Digging up archeological artifacts is common in England, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Tunisia and a dozen other countries where ancient coins are found. The Roman Empire was vast and spanned a thousand years. If you were a collector in England, you would see ancient coins for sale in every coin shop, often because a farmer in a field, or someone scavenging with a metal detector found them in the ground — sometime in hoards of thousands together, where some Roman subject long ago buried them for safekeeping. Museums usually get first pick, but most finds are of coins already in the museums, so they go on the market.
