COIN HOARD

Unique ID: YORYM-17E5F8

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

TREASURE CASE: 2010 T474.

Description: The coins appear to be a general mix of typical late Roman period settlement site finds, rather than a discreet group from one context.

Radiates (AD 260s - 270s): 2
Nummi (ranging in date from early to late fourth century): 36
Siliqua (AD 364-367): 1

Metal Content:
Late Roman radiates (post AD 260) and nummi are essentially bronze coins, some with a silver admixture to the alloy in the order of 1-5%.The siliqua is likely to contain a high percentage of silver.

From the same find?
This group of coins has the appearance of an accumulation of losses from different periods over the course of the third, fourth and possibly into the fifth century 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 and of varying surface appearance. Such an assemblage is typical of the range of coins found on a later Roman settlement. 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 in an area of settlement 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.

The coins will be recorded on the PAS database.
