Coin of the month
Every month we will look at one of the coins from the Seaton Down hoard in more detail. With 22,888 coins in the hoard there are plenty of interesting stories to choose from.
Almost all of the coins in the hoard are of the same basic type. They are bronze nummi made between AD 317 and 348. However, despite this apparent similarity there are in fact 0ver 1,000 variations. Each one tells a slightly different story and these stories build up into a fascinating picture of life in the Roman world.
Here are some of our favourites.
