Robertson 2000, 171 no. 733: ""One day during the third week in May 1892, Mr. Thos. Evans of Coed y Clorian whilst ploughing in one of the fields on his farm was fortunate enough to turn up an earthenware crock containing about 800 coins of Roman emperors of the third century AD, amongst them being those of Valerianus, Gallienus, Claudius, and Aurelianus. The crock was embedded in the breast of a hill, just on the line of an old watercourse and it is probable that the water had wasted away a great part of the soil bringing the crock to the surface. The top of the vessel had been plou…
