|A rare Byzantine gold coin has been found by a group of schoolboys in northern Israel. The coin was found along a stream in the Galilee region. The coin is a solidus minted by the emperor Theodosius II in Constantinople around 420–423 CE.|
Theodosius II was named to the throne as an infant in 402 and ruled until 450 when he died in a riding accident.
A high quality (AU) Theodosius II solidus would expect to make at least $ 1500.
