I had this in another topic but it seemed out of place there so I put it here.
Did they come here? Read this and decide. I guess I kind of stole this poll from the website.
1. Roman coins have been found in Venezuela and Maine
2. Roman coins were found in Texas at the bottom of an Indian mound at Round Rock. The mound is dated at approximately 800 AD.
3. In 1957 by a small boy found a coin in a field near Phenix City, Alabama, from Syracuse, on the island of Sicily, and dating from 490 B.C.
4. In the town of Heavener, Oklahoma, another out-of-place coin was found in 1976. Experts identified it as a bronze tetradrachm originally struck in
Antioch, Syria in 63 A.D. and bearing the profile of the emperor Nero.
5. In 1882, a farmer in Cass County, Illinois picked up bronze coin later identified as a coin of Antiochus IV, one of the kings of Syria who reigned
from 175 B.C. to 164 B.C., and who is mentioned in the Bible.
6. In 1966, a man named Manfred Metcalf stumbled upon a stone in the state of Georgia that bears an inscription that is very similar to ancient
writing from the island of Crete called "Cretan Linear A and B writing.
The list goes on and on.
