School kids excavate Byzantine-era coin at Kilodia

NUMISMATICS: Students on archaeology program unearth a 1,700-year-old coin. – Students from schools in the Lev Hasharon Regional Council helping on an archaeological dig on the Sharon plain have unearthed an ancient coin dating back to the year 300 C.E., among other finds.

I can find no other information about the coin. From the photo its surface looks almost completely abraded to me. I'm impressed that specialists could identify it.
