hello , beautiful lead coin of " Massinissa " king of numidia " (actually : maghreb = tunisia,algeria and marrocco ) , more than twos century before J.C

During his younger years while not yet king he fought in the Second Punic War (218–201 BC), first against the Romans as an ally of Carthage and later switching sides (206 BC). With Roman support, he united the eastern and western Numidian tribes and founded the Kingdom of Numidia. He is well-known for his role as a Roman ally in the Battle of Zama (202 BC) and as husband of Sophonisba, a Carthaginian noblewoman whom he allowed to poison herself to avoid being paraded in a triumph in Rome

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
