It dates from the late 17th century and belonged to a prominent sheriff and nobleman, a member of Parliament.

Everything was wrapped in Polish, Yiddish and German newspapers from October 1939.

A hoard of four thousand Roman coins from a sunken 2nd century merchant ship has been exhibited for the first time as a whole at the Museum of Aquitaine in Bordeux. The collection lay at the bottom of the Garonne River. Since the first discoveries in the 1960s, other coins have been found repeatedly, not only in the vicinity of the river, but also in building material or in the walls of houses that were built from river material.
