Object type: COIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Roman denarius of the regent Julia Mamaea, mother of the child emperor Severus Alexander, last of the Severan dynasty. Julia would have a very strong influence over her son's reign up until his murder by his own troops on campaign in the March of AD 235. The coin is broken and exhibits pitting across both surfaces. One of the larger examples occurs in the centre of the bust of Julia Mamaea, obscuring some hair detail and facial features, but the legend renders an identification as possibly RIC 343 (BMC 43). The reverse also has a large pit where a peacock is expected to be present. …

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Roman strap end of the later Roman period (200-300 AD). The object is composed of iron and consists of an ovoid centre with projections on the Y axis. The upper projection is a rectangular loop with two thick parallel nubs above. The lower projection is demarcated at the top by three conjoined rings encircling the shaft. The projection terminates in a 'nail cleaning' bifurcation. The presence of the 'nail cleaning' end is common on Roman strap ends of this period, though few examples of this type have been recorded on the PAS database.

County: East Riding of Yorkshire

A late Roman silver coin, heavily clipped. Posibly this was a siliqua, but the removal of the legend makes identification of the eperor from the obverse difficult due to the standardisation of imperial portraiture at this time. Obverse:- Diademed head of emperor, facing right. Legend has been entirely removed. Reverse:- Seated and draped figure facing left, orb in dexter hand and staff in sinister. Diameter:-11 mm Weight:- 0.7g
