Incomplete silver denarius of Hadrian (AD 117-138), [HADRIANVS] AVG COS III P P which dates the coin to c.AD 134-138 within his reign, but the reverse is worn and the original surface missing, so it cannot be defined, apart from a central figure standing right with a tall structure to the right, perhaps a parazonium, or perhaps another figure but they are too close together for ADVENTVS AVG type.

Silver Republican denarius with most of the original surface now missing, and some corrosion product which appears as raised pellets and curved lines which suggest that the surface may have been exposed to some heat in the past. The coin is too worn to be able to identify it within this period and likely dates from c.211-27 BC.

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Silver Republican denarius with only four letters left on the obverse NIVS and a bare head facing right with curly hair and no beard and a defined angular mark at the base of the neck. So perhaps it is a denarius with the head and legend of Marcus Antonius, or Mark Antony (83-30 BC), but must date from at least the time of the Second Triumvirate with Octavian, established in 43 BC. The closest parallels that the recorder can find are on coins from the east, c.32-31 BC, with small lettering behind the head, and the best example of these is illustrated in BMC, Republic III (1970) on Pla…

County: Cornwall

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman hinged dolphin-type brooch, missing one wing and the hinge and pin, as well as the foot and catchplate. There is a small fragment of the copper alloy spindle visible within the tubular wing. Some of the surface of the wing remains on the outside and retains two sets of parallel transverse incised lines. The head of the brooch has a central raised moulded square which extends vertically down the bow into a lozenge-shape which tapers into a neck and then expands into a rounded terminal. The terminal appears zoomorphic because a chip has been broken off…

Incomplete cast copper alloy Aesica-variant brooch, likely another Cornish Type 31 (Bayley, Butcher & Tyacke, 2011), judging from the length of the crossbar, with long narrow wings, and the form of its junction with the bow, at the head where there is a perforation for a stud, and a circular plate bow with a central perforation, again missing its stud. There are two slight projections or knops on either side of the disc plate, which might have held studs, creating a cruciform shape typical of the Cornish Type 31, but the thin and flat plate is not typical of the type. The fantail foot…

Silver reduced siliqua, of the period AD 360 to 367 (Reece Periods 18-19), possibly of Jovian (c.AD 363-364). Reverse: VOT/V/MVLT/X within wreath type. For possible type see RIC VIII, Arles, no. 331. This reverse type was struck for Jovian, Valentinian I and Valens. Altough the obverse legend appears to read [ ] IOV[ ] it could just be D N V[ ] so the coin might be Valentinianic.

Sheet copper alloy mount or escutcheon plate in the form a flower with a central raised roundel and four trefoil petals in a cross formation. One of the central petals in one of the four groups has broken away so that it is flush with the other two petals either side. This broken edge may have originally been extended to form an arm of a handle for a drawer or as a decorative mount on an item of furniture. The back of the mount has an open circular hole, which is about 6 mm in diameter, where the mount has been punched from behind to form the central roundel on the front. It does not …

Cast copper alloy jews harp, with bevelled edges so that it is lozenge-shaped in section, which flattens out as the body extends into the tapering arms. At the apex of the loop there are two parallel grooves where the iron tongue would have been attached originally. This small lyre-shaped musical instrument was used by holding the frame between the teeth and striking the iron tongue with the fingers. They were used from the Medieval period right up to the 18th century, but the earlier ones are often forged iron, are decorated with punchwork or engraving, have 'barleytwist' loops, and …
