Hi,
I read this and laughed. Where did they get the bit about the second found in the UK? There were a dozen or so in the Normanby hoard alone.

That's pretty cool.  Strange though that a metal detectorist who has a collection of coins didn't recognize what it was for 30 years.

The rev. shows Salus seated feeding a serpent, but the legend is apparently FORTVNA....

A unique Roman inscription was found during archaeological excavations near Valkenburg in South Holland. This is a text on one of the poles of an old Roman road, along the current N206. According to the province, no such discovery has been made in the Netherlands before.

It is a inscription on a wooden pole of the second cohort of Roman citizens. That was a unit of the Roman army that acted as a contractor and carried out all kinds of construction work, Omroep West writes.

The text is 'COH II CR', which is the abbreviation for Cohors II Civium Romanorum. The inscription probably comes from the year 125 AD.

Systematically built
Curator Jasper de Bruin is enthusiastic about the find. "Until recently, it was not known whether the Roman road was built by soldiers, civilians, locals or perhaps slaves," he says.

"Now it appears that almost 2000 years ago, the second cohort of Roman citizens built the road at Valkenburg, which can be seen as the predecessor of the current Rhineland Route." According to De Bruin, this shows that the Roman road was built very systematically.

The excavations are part of the archaeological investigation of the Roman Limes, the ancient northern border of the Roman Empire. This find will be further investigated in the coming period. The results will be published next year.
