An incomplete copper alloy enamelled unidentified object of uncertain date, all edges very water-worn but the original shape still apparently retained. The object is very flat (1.0mm thick) and subcircular in shape with a rectangular projection extending from the edge (which presumably originally extended further). The front of the object, with the projection extending at 12 o'clock, depicts a sub-circular enamel design within the curved edges of the object. It has a flat area at the top, beneath the projection. A facing bust is centrally placed on a now light-blue enamel background; a…

Robertson 2000, 335 no. 1368: ""About 30 years ago, in a field near Lumps Lane, Southsea, some workmen who were digging clay turned up a number of fragments of Roman pottery, and one vase or urn was recovered entire. This same field lately came into the possession of Mr. Harry A. Evans whose workmen also discovered several fragments, and one of them had the good fortune to unearth a jar filled with silver coins to the number of about a thousand. They included a few of the reigns of Trajan, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius, but the majority belonged to the middle of the fourth centur…

De Jersey (2015): ""A few years since a parcel amounting to nearly one hundred coins, in silver and mixed metal, were found near Portsmouth. They, for the most part, resembled those given by Ruding, Plate 3, Nos. 46, 47, 49, 50, 51, 52, and, Plate 2, Nos. 32, 33 and 34. Mr. Cuff, who communicates this, observes, it is worthy of remark, that not one of them has the androcephalous horse." Akerman 1837, 221 n.26 The records of this hoard are so confused - even by the standards of the early nineteenth century - that it is debatable whether there is a great deal of point in attempting to r…
