Axum and Yemen seem irrelevant.
Why are there more in Britain than in Italy?
Coins in the most urban areas of the empire eventually had to be melted back again to forge new currency. At the outskirts they still used that as currency even centuries after they were issued.
Then OP's map is useless
NTA or OP but not useless, just an incomplete picture
>just an incomplete picture
No its completely useless
Better recording system for coins found by metal detectorists and random members of the public?
If that's the case this map is too incomplete to really gather data from. If Anatolia and Iran are so blank and those governments have bad recording practices, then you really are going to miss the bigger picture. Let alone Yemen (warzone for decades) and Ethiopia which likely has other worries than creating a roman coin registry, and likely doesn't even have a culture of valuing them beyond their literal metal worth.
Same reason Roman ruins in britain are literally this well preserved. These are some basic bitch Roman bathhouses but the British preserved them because they actually gave a shit and had a real civilisation after the Roman collapse
Italy meanwhile used major Roman structures for shit like keeping cattle and tore the bricks apart to use to build tiny shit houses.
Is the water supposed to look that bad
Yeah, it’s not for bathing. It’s pretty much the same standard actual Roman era users would have used. Only difference is they drained it daily and then refilled it the next day in Roman times. Obviously they don’t want naked people or people in swimwear messing around in the ancient baths
That’s like saying the Cargo Cult is superior because they keep American traditions or something lol
why are angloids retarded
>Let's use this bathouse as a sheep pen. We knwo we can recreate it later after we get back on are feet........
>We need to preserve this ancient alien tech for future generations
>had a real civilisation after the Roman collapse
oh no no no
Brits didn't preserve shit, they abandoned these places. In Italy, people continued to live in the cities, so reused the building materials.
Well, thats an incendiary way to put it.
Another maybe more illustrative way is to say that itally was still a major center of civilization after the collapse but mostly effectively lived in rather large city statelets so they had actual things to do with that stuff.
You mean the Brits thought they were visited by aliens, so they took great care of whatever they left behind, whereas the people in Italy couldn't give a shit about ruin number 30041
That bathhouse was rebuilt in the 18th century.
Made the medlets seethe
Pretty sure ancient land house many unearth treasure
I wonder if those jeets had any idea whose portraits they were looking at on those coins.
Probably some vague "Caesar" figure who was the king of Rome
>countries mostly traded with themselves
Why are there so few coins in Anatolia? Turks?
Turkey has really piss poor policies about historic preservation and cataloguing archeological sites.
High likelihood the oldest ever human structures and/or cities are on the bottom of Turkish dams.
I just had the novel and revolutionary idea of archeological terrorism (in Minecraft)
This map does not surprise me. Maybe Muslims countries are less likely to report Roman coins.
>all those coins in Gotland
