Gold coins and statues more than two thousand years old have been discovered in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). An interesting find was made by archaeologists during excavations in the town of Tell Abrak in the emirate of Umm al-Quwain.

According to experts, coins imitating Roman monetary units were in use in the 1st century AD. As the head of the Italian archaeological mission in Umm al-Quwain, Micheledelli Esposti, said, "this money is an imitation of coins minted in the Roman Empire, or rather in Lyon."

In addition, two stone statues and a tablet with inscriptions in Aramaic were extracted from under the sand and cultural layer.

Scientists have been excavating in Tell Abrak for several years, which, judging by ancient monuments, flourished in the period from 2500 BC to 300 AD. Meanwhile, the history of the area itself goes back to the Neolithic era.

Currently, the authorities of the emirate are preparing to open a new arechological museum, where a unique and original collection of artifacts from all historical periods of Umm al-Quwain, starting from the Neolithic era and up to the pre-Islamic period, will be exhibited.
