    Boston Gary's stonking double gold pouch

    Cracking first pouch of the season and both Celtic's were from new fields, Field 18 on Aunties and the air field area

    50 - 20 BC Essex Wheels quarter, VA 260, BMC 485 and 496, ABC 2231. Quite a rare Trinovantian type
    1.4g, 14.42mm - sent to CCI for recording and ID confirmation.
    The quarter you sent is an Essex Wheels type as you say, all ID correct and I've recorded it as 12.0697 (the BM haven't sent my allocation of 2013 numbers yet, still using last years).

    Very thick heavy 2nd C Roman bronze coin sent for ID
    Ah yes - the unmistakably sad-eyed Antoninus Pius (138-161). I'm not certain who the personification on the reverse was meant to be, but with the outstretched right hand (holding... what?) and the rudder in the left hand, it's probably meant to be either Ceres/Annona holding a bunch of grain-ears (over a modius?) or Salus feeding a serpent rising from an altar. This also appears to have been in the plow-soil for some time as the legend-bearing portions of the edges are all chipped away.
