An incomplete Roman ceramic Lowther's Group 1 and Betts Die 3, relief-patterned flue-tile dating from AD 150-200. A similar tile is illustrated in Betts et al (1997:53 Fig.27a).

County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An extremely worn and illegible silver coin, probably of Medieval to Post-Medieval date. Both the obverse and reverse are completely worn and are now illegible as are both the obverse and reverse legends. The thinness of the flan suggests that it was probably a struck rather than milled coin. The flan has been bent into a stretched 'S' shaped profile and as such may well have been used as a love token. Die axis is uncertain. Weight is 1.54g, diameter is 19.3mm and thickness is 0.6mm.
