LATEST ROMAN COIN HOARD

Arthur Shippee forwarded the following item from The
Explorator mailing list (explorator 7.43). He writes:
"A metal detectorist in Norfolk found a hoard of Roman
coins."

The following is quoted from an article in the Eastern
Daily Press of Norfolk:

"Finds officer Dr Adrian Marsden said the collection of
900-plus Roman denarii is a significant discovery and
includes coins from 270 years of early British history.

The earliest coins  from 32BC  feature Marc Anthony,
consort to Cleopatra, whereas the most recent date from
240AD and the short-lived reign of teenage emperor
Gordian III.

"We were out on a Sunday and it was almost dark when
we started," said Mr Buckley.

"We have never found anything as large as this before. The
50 that we first found on the surface was amazing but to think
there were hundreds below the surface as well."
