I hope you enjoy this one Lucas! We will probably not see another anytime soon.

That could be, but if there is one in North Hampshire, hopefully more will be found closer to Rome. It went a long way to be the only one that gets found. As with many things, time will tell. Now I need the regular D601 to go with it.

Metal detecting is strictly forbidden in Italy, it's hard to find here another one!

The fact it was found in North Yorkshire at a time Domitian began dismantling the northern frontier line of forts is very intriguing! The odds of this rare type being found that far from Rome (the edge of the known civilised world) is truly staggering.

Great addition Lucas! You didn't have to trade David a kidney for that one did you!?
