Jeweller's Hoard

Jeweller's Hoard
This hoard, found during building work in 1985, represents part of the stock of a jeweller working in the area in the second century AD. There are 110 coins in the hoard, 83 silver and 27 bronze. The silver coins (mostly denarii of Domitian) were almost certainly being melted down for conversion into jewellery. All the engraved gems (117) are of carnelian.
