Roman coin found in Sweden.

A Roman coin has been found just outside the Swedish town Norrköping. The coin is from 169-170, i.e. the time of Marcus Aurelius. It also shows the emperor on one side. 

This is the second Roman coin to be found in the region. The first one was found over a hundred years ago, in 1905, making this find quite remarkable.
