COIN HOARD

Unique ID: GLO-40A9B6

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Circumstances of Find

During archaeological investigation by Cotswold Archaeology Ltd in advance of building work for the new Bath Spa, 16th November 2007.

The Beau Street hoard 2007 T677 Summary of contents for valuation The hoard consists of eight archaeologically discrete bags of coins kept together as excavated from the block and listed as separate summaries below (bags 1-8). In addition to these eight groups there were some coins that could not be assigned to a bag that were removed during the excavation of the soil block in the laboratory. These are listed in the final summary, as overall contents by emperor and then as stored (in bags relating to their stratigraphic position in the block, as removed in the laboratory). Some of these groups may be related to particular bags and others have no known context. Additional to this is the material studied by Richard Reece that formed the basis of the initial coroner's report in 2007. A proportion of this is now display in Bath and was catalogued by Richard Abdy before it went to Bath. It was difficult to reconcile the summary by Richard Reece with the actual coins remaining at the BM and so they have been re-counted and summarised with the loose material in the final group below. One nummus of Crispus found with the loose coins is considered to be a stray find not part of the hoard. Overall summary (with primary type of coin in bag):

Bag 1 3803 Silver radiates
Bag 2 3033 Debased radiates
Bag 3 2773 Silver radiates
Bag 4 2302 Silver radiates
Bag 5 775 Silver radiates
Bag 6 1795 Denarii
Bag 7 406 Debased radiates
Bag 8 253 Debased radiates
Loose coins 2437 Mixed (mainly silver)
Total 17577
