Ninety-one Roman denarii, principally of the first and second centuries A.D. As found the coins are in differing conditions, some fresh, some encrusted with corrosion products, perhaps the result of contact with vegetable matter in the form of grass which appears to have been deliberately included within the container of the coins. A detailed study must therefore await conservation of the coins. The coins were contained within the remains of a pottery vessel The latest coin in the hoard is a denarius of Marcus Aurelius, dating to his eighteenth tribunician year, or A.D. 163-4. T…

An associated group of three silver Roman Republican denarii: 1. C. Licinius L.F. Macer, Rome c.84 BC; Crawford 354/1; 2.51g, worn and corroded 2. L. Mussidius Longus, Rome c.41 BC; Crawford 494/42; 2.09g, worn and corroded 3. uncertain Republican moneyer; 2.91g worn and corroded. Silver coins of the Roman Republic formed a significant part of Roman currency until the beginning of the second century A.D. until withdrawn under the emperor Trajan (98-117). From their worn state, it would appear that these coins formed a small sum, lost at some point in the first century A.D.…

A slightly tapering gold tube with coiled wire decoration attached to it near the wider end and about two-thirds of the way down. The wider end is closed by a flat plate, secured from coming out by the ends of the tube being bent over. The plate now sits at an angle, with one side pushed slightly down the tube, but it would appear that it originally sat square to the end of the tube. Attached to the plate is a small loop, of fairly flat cross-section. The tube is bent slightly to one side towards its narrower end, the edges of which are folded in. It seems likely that it is broken at …
