      Gold coins show 'Emperor of Britain'
      The Times [UK], January 24, 2008

      Two "extremely important" gold coins that shed light on a little- known
      rebel Roman emperor from the 3rd century AD have been unearthed by a
      farmer in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area. They relate to the
      Roman commander Carausius, who declared himself Emperor of Britain
      around 286 or 287 after the Emperor in Rome ordered his execution. He
      was overthrown in a coup d'├ętat by his finance minister, Allectus, in
      293.

      Those finance ministers will get you every time!

      RB, Self-proclaimed Emperor of the North Pole
