Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper alloy coin or medallion with a diameter of 36mm and a weight of 13.23g. This piece is incredibly worn. On the obverse there is a faint trace of a bust right which might have the features of Carausius (AD 286-93) - sadly this cannot be captured on a photograph. Although this might seem far-fetched, the British Museum has a medallion of Carausius which measures 38mm in diameter and weighs 13.21g. The BM piece is made of orichalcum (brass) and appears to have been overstruck on an earlier dupondius of the first of second centuries AD. It is just possible that this new find is s…

Record ID: FASAM-0B7712
Object type: COIN
Broad period: GREEK AND ROMAN PROVINCIAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper alloy coin of Gordian III (AD 238-44), struck at Nicopolis-ad-Istrum (in Moesia Inferior). The obverse legend is illegible, but the emperor is identified fromt he style of bust. The reverse inscription records the piece as coming from Nicopolis. The reverse type might be unpublished, but we will not know until a better example of this issue is found (either from a hoard or as a site-find, or in a publication that has not been consulted), but probably shows Hermes standing left.
