Some of those pot legs are whoppers. I hope they used a good pulley or swing arm system over the fire or it’d have been a nightmare to shift!

Great find, as it’s unlikely to have moved far from where it was used, so assuming there was a dwelling nearby?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
