This coin was part of the Harptree Hoard, which was found in 1887 and contained nearly 1500 late Roman coins. Comes with a ticket from CNG.

East Harptree is a small village in the UK some 16 miles south-west of Bath and it was the site of the discovery of about 1500 largely mint-condition Roman silver coins all dating from the 4th century which is known as the 'Harptree Hoard'. It was discovered on the land of Mr William Kettlewell of Harptree Court. During the dry summer of 1887 the water supply to the village of East Harptree had run very low and it was decided to search for an additional spring on the Mendip Hills that could be conducted into the mains pipes to supplement the supply. In November of that year, while searching for the source of a spring in Harptree Woods, a labourer called William Currell put his pick into a vessel full of Roman coins. The jar was 6 inches (15cm) below the surface in swampy ground (Source: Spink).
