A thunderbolt sits just to the left of the inscription and the fabled club of Heracles (Hercules) cuts between the lettering.

Coins of this type are often sold on collector’s website and antiquities dealerships for hundreds of pounds each.

Londoncoins.co.uk, for example, lists a tetradrachm with the face of the Greek goddess Artemis for £280.

In total, Mr Durca uncovered 68 of the coins in Radomiresti, Olt County.
