Total number of coins
1590 bronze coins (1452 Dium, 47 koinon of Thessaly, 39 koinon of Macedonia, 13 Thessalonica, 7 Philippi, 2 Edessa, 2 Corinth, 1 Amphipolis, 1 Magydus, 1 Tralleis, 10 uncertain, and 15 Roman bronzes), ranging from Claudius to Antoninus Pius, found in the foundation level besides the west wall of the first (western) room excavated at the place of the former sanctuary of Zeus Olympios, next to two other hoards (Dion 1998 and Dion 2000). All three hoards were buried in clay vases. The exact function of the area where the hoards were found is unclear, but the hellenistic sanctuary of Zeus Olympios had been transformed in Roman times, the wall of the temenos built over, and a theatre established.
