7 AR siliquae and 143 base metal coins to AD 402 scattered over a relatively small area. The earliest coin is a nummus of Constantine I (330-5) and latest coins siliquae and nummi of the house of Theodosius struck no later than the early years of the fifth century. They form a compact group which would reflect the circulating medium in the last years of Roman Britain and is most likely the remains of a dispersed coin hoard.

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…

All the coins are a mixture of first and second century AD copper alloy denominations known as sestertii, dupondii and asses (1 sestertius = 2 dupondii and 1 dupondius = 2 asses).and are mostly worn in appearance. The first eleven coins were found in May 2010 and an addendum of six more in May 2013.

The group stretches from the late first century AD (a worn coin of the Emperor Domitian) to the late Severan dynasty (a sestertius of Severus Alexander of AD22…

A gold solidus of the emperor Theodosius I struck at Milan between 378 and 387 (Roman Imperial Coinage vol. IX, no. 5f or 8b).

The group comprises four silver denarii. The earliest, showing some wear, is of Domitian whilst the other three are in crisper condition and show very little signs of circulation. All of these three date to the reign of Antoninus Pius. It seems likely that the four 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 occurred in the 150s or 160s.

Fragments of silver snake finger-ring of Johns (1996) Type C, a form "which incorporates two or more complete snakes in the design" (Johns 1997, 35-7): two lengths of wire, both with a snake-head terminal and one end missing, form a loose reef knot . Part of a probably separate object, a pin with a small biconical head, passes through the centre of the knot. All three fragments move freely, although the pin is held in place by the other two pieces and cannot be withdrawn. 1st - 2nd century.

Silver finger ring of Henig's type XI with wide bezel set with an oval disc showing a scene in relief. This features a male figure reclining to the left; he holds out what appears to be a ewer towards a bird. This represents Ganymede, Jupiter's cupbearer offering a drink to his master in the form of an eagle. Depictions of Ganymede and the Eagle together with representations of Leda and the Swan and Cupid and Psyche are common in the late Roman Empire, the themes of metamorphosis and apotheosis being especially popular in that period.

Five silver denarii and one silver radiate, found in a close area and running in a straight line as if scattered by the plough. One, a coin of Vespasian, is heavily worn whilst the others, coins of Septimius Severus and his family, were relatively crisp. They form a discrete group in terms of date and denomination and there seems no doubt that they represent part of a dispersed hoard.

Treasure report by Adrian Marsden: A hoard of cu alloy objects found in close association with one another and very close to a radiate imitation manufacturer's hoard found in November 2004 (see file). These comprise two RB bracelets and 10 sestertii of the second century. The coins, where condition at deposition can be ascertained, were all heavily worn, suggesting a mid-third century date. This suggests that both bracelets and coins were intended for melting down to produce radiate imitations, a theory made more likely by the fact that one sestertius appears to have had pieces cut fr…
