In any case, it is quite rejoicing to hear that two coins minted during the reign of Alexander the Great have been recently found by members of the Israel Caving Club while investigating a large stalactite cave “somewhere” in northern Israel (the location is kept secret to avoid illegal looting).

Researchers have labeled this find as one of the most important discoveries in recent years.
