Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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 …

Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

A group of 39 sestertii dupondii and asses, the latest legible specimen of which dates to the reign of Gordian III. Although the date range spreads over more than a century, they form a compact group and their wear patterns are consistent with coins lost or buried together, the earlier coins generally showing more wear than the later ones. These coins were all found in a relatively small area and undoubtedly represent a dispersed hoard.

A single Roman gold coin, a solidus of Arcadius, found in exactly the same area as a hoard of 26 late Roman gold solidi and 4 silver siliquae discovered in 1993. This coin is plainly part of the same hoard, missed during the 1993 excavations. It was struck in 394-5, a date that exactly accords with the latest coins in the hoard and its crisp, almost mint state, similar to that of the other coins of this date present, suggests that it had not been in circulation long when the hoard was buried. Arcadius, solidus, mint of Milan, Roman Imperial Coinage volume IX, 35b (September 6, 394 t…

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…
