Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three Iron Age silver units, fused together. Only two faces are visible, one of each coin at the two ends of the pile. One is the obverse of an Icenian Pattern-Horse type, the other the reverse of an ECEN Pattern-Horse type. Given that they are fused together it is certain that these coins were concealed together and thus represent a hoard. The date of deposition of this hoard could lie at any time between the very late 1st century BC and the period of the Boudiccan revolt or even a little later.
