Robertson 2000, 243 no. 1001:

""About two years ago [i.e. before 1804], a large quantity of Roman copper coins were found in a field belonging to Mr. John Shuttlewood of Walton, situate about one mile from Cotes Hall and about two miles from Walton; which are now in the possession of Mr. Adams, junior, bookseller at Loughborough; which must in general have been in high preservation when deposited in the earth, as they do not appear to have been much injured by currency; and even now, in their present state of decomposition, almost all of them are legible, and many of them are very fine; but they are in general common and obvious. One of them, however, of Severus Caesar, with the title of Augustus, appears seasonably in aid, to support the tottering credit of Goltzius, from whose time no mention has been made of it, except by Harduin, likewise under suspicion, to this day."
Then came a list of 214 folles:
Diocletian 35
Maximian 73
Constantius I, Caes., Aug. 27
Constantius I (deified) 5
Severus II, Caes., Aug. 4
Maximinus Daza, Caes. (?) 6
Constantine I, Caes. (or Aug.?) 64

-J. Nichols, Hist. and Ant. of Co. of Leics.., III.2 (1804), 1136, rev. types"


End date uncertain, unclear if Constantine I Caesar or Augustus.
