    Second Roman Silver coin found in one week...

    Don't worry Jimmy it wasn't a Commodus
    (although Dad found it, so only 1 each really )

    Dad went out for nearly 3 hours before the rain & made a wise move. We had discussed his previous short visit yesterday to this classic looking hill spot & agreed that the 2 scrappy coins meant we were close.

    He got a nice Medieval Knife Terminal (2 Beast heads)
    Brass Horse Boss
    3 Roman Bronze Coins

    Plus a Roman Silver;

    Domitian AR Denarius circa AD90
    (only our 2nd Roman Silver of this Emporer & pretty early for our area)

    Can't wait to hit this site in better condition.

    Big thanks to Land-mag

    I think the last time we both had a Roman Silver was Feb this year, so funny we finally got one in the same week. (His early period - mine late)

    Sadly I knew it was about 19mm before I checked as thats the standard size for a Denari. The Roman were pretty good at mass production

    The first couple of years we seem to really hoover stuff off, so our continued success mostly is due to new sites, which as a team we make look easier than it appears

    Thanks everyone else, its one of our more exciting finds, it would be about a days pay for a Roman Soldier & they didn't lose many. It would be a little like you losing a $50 bill
