Record ID: NMS-D9A0D6
Object type: COIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy modified Roman coin, possibly a sestertius. The flan is square with rounded corners and appears to have been hammered around the edges to square-up or lip the periphery. The thinness of the coin and the fact that both obverse and reverse are struck in relatively low relief for the period suggest either a contemporary copy or that the object was struck in imitation of a coin, but was not intended for use as one. Obverse; female bust facing right, probably Faustina the Younger (Reece Period 8. Circa AD161-175). Reverse: standing female figure. Die axis 6 o'clock.

Object type: STRAP END

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Corroded copper alloy late Saxon strap end. Sub-rectangular in form with two trapezoidal removals from the terminal end creating a castellated profile. The profiled end is slightly thickened to one side with the central trapezoidal projection moulded into a raised hexagonal form, perhaps representing a debased beasts head. In fact, there is a possibility that the base of the projection is a corroded break and it originally extended to more of a zoomorphic finial. The attachment end is bifurcated with single rivet holes and extant rivets, in each upper corner. The central body of the fr…
