COIN

Unique ID: NMGW-B60B35

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Copper alloy radiate, probably of Allectus (AD 293-6) (Reece Period 14), probably PAX AVG, unclear Pax left. Mint unclear. Heavily worn/holed - unusual in a Roman context, so presumably indicates re-use in Anglo-Saxon times e.g as part of a necklace? This coin has been considered for Sam Moorhead's corpus for RIC.

Evidence of reuse: Pierced
