The Bourton-on-the Water Hoard (Gloucestershire), c1970

Over 3,000 mainly follis sized coins of the London mint, mostly Constantine I, with some of Licinius I and a few others.  Over 500 of the coins were of the Soli Invicto Comiti type with many in superb condition.  The types of coins present - Licinius (no coins minted in the west after 316), Crispus Caesar, Constantine Jun Caesar (both made Caesar in 317) and the Sol reverse (not minted after 316) and those types not present, including several reverse designs introduced in 319, when taken together, indicate that the hoard was assembled early in the reign of Constantine, almost certainly between 317 and 319 AD. The main hoard contained 2707 coins and the scattered hoard 590 coins.
