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…

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…
