The hole in the wall

This morning brought our first Roman coin which we think was issued under Tetricus I (AD 270-3).   The coin popped out from a cavity in the wall of the bath house in the northern corridor section, followed by an angry frog!

  1. What is the tell-tale sign indicating that it is from the reign of Tetricus I?

    Excellent images by the way, and great to see the story literally unfold.

      Hi Emile,

      If you look closely you can see the face and crown. We’ll get a coin specialist to look at it for further confirmation.

      With best wishes,

      Guy
