So last weekend I found my first holed roman coin . So I did some research how fascinating and mysterious artifact . So I did a little research and found it so interesting that they cant give an exact purpose for putting a hole in . It could be a pendant , nailed to door or furniture the saxons even holed them to make it like the roman emperor was bowing or even 100s years later a farmer having eyes only find and holed it as a charm or pendant all we no is that it was a coin and turned into a artifact and had a purpose but what we will never no .
