Found this in my Roman grot pot!

Post by cookertron » Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:39 pm

Hi folks,

I was going through my Roman grot pot the yesterday and found this coin, don't know why was in the pot as it has some detail on it. I'm hoping you guys will be able to help me with it :)

Unfortunately I can't tell you about the circumstances around me finding it because I can't remember, I know it was found in my ex-pasture permission last year which is now a crop field and currently under crop boooooo.

I know it was minted in Trier, Germany as the mint mark is T something S.

Thank you for your help and I welcome your suggestions.

I would guess a 4thC bronze follis? House of Contantine or theabouts but you need a proper expert. ::g

That makes sense as there's an image of a leaf in the middle and according to the link you gave me the leaf is a mint mark for TR (Trier).

combined with other finds the dates suggest the site has been occupied from before the romans (celtic) right through to present day. However the majority of finds have been Roman.

I can't wait until August, the landowner is very keen to see what we find this year. I found a lovely Roman fibula brooch last year complete with pin, I handed it over to him (reluctantly) along with a a selection of coins. They are his really so I can't grumble (grumble grumble).
