Robertson 2000, 363-364 no. 1495: "During the excavation of a Roman settlement at Sea Mills: "the number of coins - 153 - too, is quite remarkable, when we consider that the trenches in which they were found covered only a fraction of the area of the whole field. They included a small hoard. The hoard comprised 24 coins, all found within a circle two feet in diameter. No fragments of a jar which might have contained the coins were found, so it is supposed that they were contained within a leathern pouch or cloth bag which rotted completely away and permitted the coins to become disper…
