The Rauceby Hoard, Largest Roman coin hoard found in UK

The Rauceby Hoard is the largest recorded hoard of Roman coins found in Britain to date, discovered by a detectorist near Ancaster in July 2017. The hoard, consisting of 3,099 tetrarchic nummi dating from 294 to 307 AD, was found in a ceramic pot buried in a large oval pit. The hoard is believed to be a ceremonial or votive offering, providing further evidence for so-called ‘ritual’ hoarding in Roman Britain.
