Coin on a baptism bell

A coin with the emperor Hadrian stamped on it was found on a baptism bell that was cast in 1557. It is not definite that the coin originally came from Seligenstadt. In any event, the coin must have had a special value. When the bell was melted down, the coin was moved to the museum's antiquity collection.
