Robertson 2000, 171 no. 734: "At the Gwindy, "on the first of June, 1835, a tremendous thunderstorm exposed what a little girl (who passed just after it was over) supposed to be buttons; she picked up a handful, and took them home, which upon examination, proved to be coins. It was very soon noised abroad, and a number of persons went over, and, as may be supposed, they scrambled and pulled the vessel out piecemeal. Information was brought me that coins had been discovered, and I immediately sent over a person, with particular orders, if possible, to get the vessel in which they had b…

Robertson 2000, 307 no. 1267: "27 Feb. 1856 "Mr. Syer Cumming read the following notice of coins found at Lougher [sic], Caermarthen, laid before the Association by Mr. Eaton.. The first to notice is one of high interest and antiquity - a chalcos of Syracuse, similar to one figured in Bti's Thesaurus Brandenburgicus, lib. ii, p. 289, where it is assigned to Gelo I.. Though the Romans secured their conquests in South Wales by erecting several stations, none of their money occurs in this trouvaille of an earlier date than the last half of the third century. They are all third brass." Th…

No vessel or fragments of any were found near the spot, though sought for. They were all denares [sic] of the Emper…

Robertson 2000, 213 no. 870: ""On 13 November 1966 a hoard of Roman coins, buried in a bronze bowl, was discovered during excavations for a septic tank on Mr. David Heard's new housing development at Penard, Gower (Glamorgan). 2,583 pieces - the original total was probably a little higher - were seized by the police on behalf of the coroner, but on advice from the National Museum of Wales it was decided that the silver-content of the coins was too low to justify the institution of treasure-trove proceedings.. As Plate IV shows, the container was badly damaged, but its shape was restor…
