An Egyptian Coin Found in Mississippi.
The Jackson Miss, Eagle says that several years
Ago, a veritable Egyptian silver coin, worth about
Thirty cents of our currency, was in digging a
Well near Tullahoma, in that State, found embedded
In the earth, about thirty under ground.
This is one of those isolated facts which are from
time to time coming to light, from which has
Been drawn the inference that this country was
Known centuries before the time of Columbus,
Not only to the Northmen and other Europeans,
But to the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, and even
To the Chinese.
