This Astonishingly rare find consists of a Hoard of 65 Bronze coins of the Emperor, contained within its original hiding pot.

The coins are of a very high quality, with most of the legend being visible on virtually all of the coins.

Average diameter of coin: 3/4 inch. Height of pot: 2 3/7 inches.
