[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution, presented in the Study Day "A place of worship in the center of the Mediterranean: the sanctuary of Tas Silg" (Rome, 21 March 2005), illustrates the numismatic documentation that came to light on the Tas Silg site during the excavation campaigns conducted by the Italian Archaeological Mission in Malta since 1963. These are specimens of Punic, Sicilian, Roman (republican and imperial) emission, which are included in the broader framework of coin circulation in the Maltese archipelago. The last part of the essay presents the huge coin deposit found under the bottom slab of the baptismal font, studying its votive function.
