Dispersed coin hoard dating to the Roman period. The hoard consists of 47 copper alloy coins. TREASURE NO: 2010-T211.

The coins appear to be a mixture of Roman copper alloy denominations dating from the second to the late fourth century, summarised below:
Sestertii (2nd cent AD) 2
Radiates (late 3rd cent AD) 4
Tetrachic /Early Constantinian 2
Mid-Constantinian 15
Late Constantinian 4
Valentinianic 19
Theodosian 1

They are all base metal in composition (copper alloy); the late Roman denominations known as radiates (post AD 260) and nummi are essentially bronze coins, some with a silver admixture to the alloy in the order of 1-5%.

This group of coins has the appearance of an accumulation of losses from different periods over the course of the second, third and fourth centuries AD. It spans a wider period than is likely for a hoard deposited in, say, the late fourth century and contains a mixture of denominations. The coins are worn in appearance and such an assemblage is typical of the range of coins found in an area inhabited during the Roman period. The coins were therefore probably not deposited together as a hoard and instead form a series of technically separate finds as a result of random deposition over a period of time. As such, these coins do not appear to constitute Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996 which require that coins must be from the same find.
