A museum cleaner is minting it after she found a lost multi-million GBP fortune in ancient coins stashed in an old jewellery box.
Curious Tanja Hols had walked past the untouched box in the storeroom at the Passau State Library in Germany thousands of times on her rounds and finally couldn't resist opening it.
Inside she found a hoard of gold and silver coins from ancient Greece, Rome and the Byzantine empire, that had simply been stored 200 years ago and never properly recorded.
Museum antiquities expert Dr Markus Wennerhold explained: "We looked for similar coins online, and found that some which were the same but in much worse condition had been sold for millions of Euros. Then there are coins that seem to be so rare they are not recorded elsewhere."
Now museum bosses are working out how to reward Tanja for her find.
"She was very honest, a brilliant historian and a great detective. We are certainly going to promote her to the curating side of the museum and we're discussing a suitable reward for her," said a spokesman.
