Incomplete silver developed crossbow brooch of Bayley and Butcher (2004) type T192. The crossbar, axis bar and pin are missing, broken at the end of the highly arched pentagonal-sectioned bow. The bow becomes abruptly circular-sectioned with a collar before the foot-plate, which is straight sided, bevelled on either edge with a single transverse rib and a pair of ribs at the upper end and two pairs of transverse ribs at the lower end.

Pierced silver siliqua of Gratian, reverse VIRTVS ROMANORVM type, mintmark and further details illegible, slightly clipped and with relatively wide (2-3mm) piercing near edge (which has worn through) between 2 and 3 o'clock (obverse), weight 1.22g, AD378-83 The worn piercing shows that this coin has been reused as a pendant and thus qualifies at an item of Treasure. It is quite worn but not excessively so. The reuse as a pendant probably belongs to the 5th century although a late Roman reuse cannot be ruled out.

Incomplete silver finger ring. Broken, the rear of the hoop missing, swelling smoothly from the narrow, oval-sectioned breaks through the shoulders to form the bezel which is undefined and undecorated except for a slightly flattened centre. The lack of diagnostic features makes dating difficult, but the form would be consistent with Roman finger rings, although a post-medieval date is also possible. Width of hoop 22mm. Width of bezel 7mm. Weight 3.7g. Field JH2

Silver circular disc, probably a bezel from a finger ring. The disc features a diademed head engraved in intaglio facing to the right. Encircling this is the retrograde and somewhat garbled legend ANTONI VIVAS IN DEO. Several of the letters are back-to-front but the meaning is relatively clear. The formula VIVAS IN DEO is a Christian one, the translation of this inscription being 'Antonius, may you live in God'. The fact that the letters are retrograde and engraved in intaglio would have made the bezel suited for use as a signet. Two strikingly similar silver bezels (both 10mm i…

Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk

59 silver denarii ranging in date from issues of the Roman Republic to those of Tiberius. The coins were found scattered over a relatively small area and clearly represent part of a hoard scattered by agricultural activity. Wear patterns are consistent with this, the older coins generally being the most worn. Dating is difficult and one's initial reaction is to connect this hoard to the Roman invasion of AD43. However, the latest coins, those of Tiberius, still show some wear and had plainly circulated for a number of years. It seems more likely, on the balance of probabilities, that …

Two late Roman silver siliquae, both rather heavily clipped, one of Theodosius and the other of Honorius. The coins have a little wear but not much. The phenomenon of clipping siliquae seems to belong to the very last years of the 4th century and the early years of the 5th. The latest coin was struck between 395 and 402, suggesting a date of loss or deposition in the early years of the 5th century. Catalogue: Theodosius, siliqua, heavily clipped, reverse VOT/X/MVLT/XX in wreath, further details illegible, weight 0.70g, AD383-95 Honorius, siliqua, heavily clipped, reverse VIRT…

The eight coins were discovered dispersed over a small area. The group comprises eight silver denarii. The earliest is of Julia Domna, whilst the latest are of the last members of the Severan dynasty, Elagabalus, Severus Alexander, Julia Soaemias, Julia Maesa and Julia Paula. None show much signs of wear although some are rather accreted due to the low silver content of the coins. It seems likely that the eight coins went into the ground together, either lost as part of a purse, or concealed as a hoard. This loss or deposition, on the basis of the condition of the coins, presumably…

The coin was discovered in the same location as a hoard of 21 silver coins found 1994 (14 coins) and 1995 (7 coins)[1]. The coin is of a Roman silver denomination known as the denarius (plural denarii). It was issued by Julius Caesar and minted in Africa in 47-6 BC (RRC[2] type 458/1). The coin satisfies the terms of the Treasure Act with regard to age and metal content. It is certainly more than 300 years old and has a precious metal contents far in excess of the 10% threshold. Same find? Roman Republican coins circulated for a long period in Britain due to their high silve…

Miniature silver sword. The blade is straight sided for most of its length before curving inwards to the point. The edges on both faces are bevelled. The rectangular hilt guard, handle and rectangular pommel are flat sectioned. There are two circular piercings, one through the hilt guard and one through the top of blade, probably for rivets rather than suspension. The sword is now slightly bent at the top of the blade. Similar miniature copper alloy and iron swords or daggers as votive objects are discussed by Bagnall Smith (2007). Roman, mid 1st - possibly 3rd century. Length 47.5…
