Name:  Appleford Hoard
Brief biography:  A hoard of 5,736 fourth century base metal coins found in a field near Appleford in Berkshire on New Year's Eve 1954.

The Appleford Hoard was found on New Year’s Eve in 1954 by a farmer ploughing his field in Berkshire near Appleford and the River Thames. It was found when the plough struck the top of one of the two pots between which the hoard was divided, over 1,650 in one and over 4,000 in the other. They appeared to have been split by mint and date and were mostly base metal, though it also contained 16 debased silver coins. It was suggested, therefore, that the hoard was buried in two stages. The terminus post quem for the entire hoard is 350, the latest coins in the first pot date from 326. The coins in the first pot were principally from the mint of London, the coins from the second pot were mostly from the mint of Trier.

It may be that these coins represented some form of a bank – the thinking being that the coins were received in two parts, as well as buried in two parts. It is discussed in an article by Kraay for Oxonesia, with details about the contents, distribution and physical pots the hoard was found in. It is also included in Robertson’s inventory of Romano-British Hoards.
