These 160 aureus coins were found below the floor of a Roman house in Corbridge in 1911 CE.
They were stored in a bronze jug, their true value hidden by 2 bronze coins wedged in its neck.
When the jug was lifted out of the ground, the weight of the gold broke it, revealing the hoard.
The Jug was lent by the English Heritage (Trustees of the Corbridge Excavation Fund).
From Corbridge, Northumberland, UK, circa 160 CE. (The British Museum, London).
