Strip of rolled lead found in association with 2012 T406. Undiagnostic.

Notes:

This object was found as part of Treasure Case 2012 T406, consisting of 101 Roman silver coins of the denomination known as a denarius (plural denarii ) and 2 copper alloy coins of the denomination known as a sestertius (plural sestertii). The earliest coin in the group is a legionary denarius of Mark Antony (issued c. 32BC-31BC) and the latest a denarius of Commodus dated to AD 190-191. The chronological spread is thus consistent with a hoard of late second century date. Also included in the hoard are 3 Roman trumpet brooches, two rosettes, two silver finger rings and ceramics.

The coins satisfy the terms of the Treasure Act with regard to age and metal content. They are certainly more than 300 years old and at least 98 of them have precious metal content in excess of 10%.

On the balance of probabilities, we conclude that this hoard of constitutes a prima facie case of treasure under the terms of the Treasure Act (1996), by being part of a group of precious metal coins and objects of the same find.
