Medieval Artefacts

Item 0192: Pierced Roman Coins
Date  
Size  
Weight  
Material  
Description Pierced roman era coins can be found on many medieval sites. The holes are made with no reference to what is on the coin, such as directly above the bust, but placed anywhere. The coins are also worn and smooth, which is very unusual in earlier 4th century coins due to the short periods of circulation of each type. This leads me to believe that the coins were polished up and used for decoration, or even armour.
