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…

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. A silver ring from Great Walsingham features a sim…

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…

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 .

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 coin has been fitted with a ribbed suspension loop, also of gold, at the 12 o'clock position on the obverse (6 o'clock on the reverse) in order for it to serve as a pendant. This process is well known from the early Saxon period when many Roman gold coins were thus treated. Coin dated to 378-87, suspension loop added from the fifth to early seventh century. Obv.

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.
