NewsWebsite Update

Friday Update: 19 August 2022


We don’t have many tokens sent into the website and so I was very pleased to receive one this week. Plus three sixpences from different reigns and a rare sceatta.

In PAS finds there is the story of a nummus of Decentius that has been cut up to make smaller coins. The story includes a man known as Paul “the Chain”. He may sound like a comedy character from Carry on at your Convenience but he was in fact a ruthless enforcer for Constantius II.

Timeline are selling several recent detecting finds including an Iron Age mount and a penny of Eadberht Praen, with a previously unknown moneyer. In the news is the story of detectorist Paul Rowlands and his find that “I doubt I shall ever beat” which is now going on public display.
