Click for a larger photo
This is a PHOTOCOPY. It was used by Forum for about 10 years until we were able to find and purchase an original copy. The image is the actual book cover, not the copy. Out of print and difficult to find.

The Cunetio Treasure (Hoard), also known as the Mildenhall Hoard, is the largest hoard of Roman coins found in Britain. It was discovered in 1978 at the site of the Roman town of Cunetio, near modern-day Mildenhall, Wiltshire, and consisted of 54,951 low value coins. The coins were contained in a large pot and a lead container. The coins are now in the British Museum and the pot is on display at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes. This study publishes a detailed catalogue of the find and illustrates over 1,000 coins.
