PAS Finds: week ended 1 April 2022
My selection of the detecting finds recorded at the PAS for the week ended 1 April 2022.
Figurine of Mercury
This head from a figurine wears a plain round hat with a pronounced rim with the remnants of two wings, known as a petasos. This indicates that this was probably Mercury. Like other Roman gods, Mercury had a few strings to his bow being the god of travellers, trickery and thieves. He was most associated with commerce and merchants, from which his name derives. This is a Find of Note; County Importance.
