Abstract

This article reappraises the Walbottle (Throckley) hoard of late third-century Roman coins. The complicated biography of the hoard since its discovery in 1879 is described, followed by a summary of the re-identified coins and a discussion of the dating of the hoard. The results of a ground-breaking metallurgical study of a sample of the Walbottle coins are also presented, emphasising the on-going value of antiquarian finds when subjected to careful re-evaluation and analysis.
