4,957 coins in a pot including coins of the Central Empire between AD 251 - 280s, the Gallic Emperors between AD260-274 and a group of 363 irregular coins.

The most striking discovery was the coin of Domitianus II, an ephemeral emperor who ruled for a couple of weeks in Gaul when it, together with Britain and Iberian peninsula formed part of the breakaway Gallic Empire.


Discovered by a metal detector user in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire.
