Correspondence in the Bodleian Library from John Lloyd of Wollaton to Edward Lhwyd discusses coins from a find of 600 or 700 coins ploughed up in an urn in "my own little Parish" (ie Wollaton). The details seem to relate to a hoard third century radiates, the latest mentioned being Probus. The subsequent history of the coins mentions a dealer in Wilford, which may have given rise to some confusion between this find and one in Wilford, IARCH-6F1F31, if they are indeed separate. John Lloyd (of Wollaton) to Edward Lhwyd, Nottingham, 3 October 1695, transcription by Helen Watt and Brynley…
