Description

During a major archaeological excavation in The Hague (Netherlands), the remains of a rural settlement from the Roman period were unearthed. The finds from this settlement near Forum Hadriani, capital of the Civitas Cananefatium, were rich by Dutch standards. One of the finds was a hoard consisting of 107 denarii (period Nero – Marcus Aurelius), six silver bracelets, a silver-plated fibula and the remains of a necklace of small glass beads. Together with other finds from this site, including coins, the hoard can teach us more about coin use and coin loss in this part of the Roman Empire.
