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

Four base silver radiates fused together in a pile. Given this feature they clearly entered the ground in a similar position and, since they are of base silver, they furnish a case of Treasure. The only legible portions are provided by the face visible at each end of the pile, an obverse of Postumus from his Principal Mint and another of Gallienus from the Gallic Mint operating in the late 250s (with a GALLIENVS.P.F.AVG legend, radiate and cuirassed bust right). Both coins are in sharp condition with little wear and the loss or deposition most probably occurred in the 260s. Three m…

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…
