Coins from the Killingholme Hoard

This hoard of 3,700 coins of Constantine I (Constantine the Great) and his sons feature a variety of different reverse designs.  The hoard was discovered at Killingholme (North Humberside) by a metal detectorist in 1993.  The coins which date from the 320s and 330s had been carefully and tightly packed into a single pot, probably in the mid 330s. After recording by the British Museum, most of the coins were sold in auction by Spinks.  Although the coins in this hoard were minted at several places in the Western Empire, the ones we have are mostly from the London mint.
