Brilliant - thank you very much!alloverover wrote: ↑Sat May 15, 2021 10:46 am Most Roman minims were either cut from bigger coins or made using the dies from bigger coins on small flans.
This is one theory on how Iron Age minims were made, using clay shrinkage to keep the detail which really is unbeleivable on some Iron Age minims

These four are the best I got, all came up within an hour, concentrating on an area after picking up a big chunk of samian ware cup & other pottery there, it was on a building site of a new farm house & barn I was working on between Bicester & Oxford, lovely dark soft soil close to a villa & temple site, I’d never stayed late at work so much for a few weeks after finding these!
