On the Cover
Gold coin, solidus, of Magnus Maximus, the usurper who ruled Spain, Gaul and Britain in AD 377—88. It was minted in Trier and his coins are not common in Britain. The silver siliqua shows the reverse of a coin of the Emperor Arcadius, dated to AD 395—402. Minted in Milan, it was one of the last Roman coins to be supplied to Britain.
This hoard of 133 coins (19 solidi and 114 siliquae) was found in 2012 . It had been buried in a boundary ditch of one of Roman London's cemeteries.
