They found also 44 pounds of coins bearing the images of the emperor Constantine, who ruled the Western Roman Empire from 312 to 324 A.D. and was later known as Constantine the Great, ruler of the Roman Empire from 324 to 337 A.D.; and of Licinius, Constantine’s rival, who ruled the eastern part of the Roman Empire. The statues were in remarkably good condition. The divers, Ran Feinstein and Ofer Ra’anan, will be awarded a certificate of appreciation and invited to tour the storerooms of the National Treasures.
