Catalogue of Coins, Part II

Preview

The catalogue of coins in part 2 was similar to part 1, but the only difference was the added label—mint. It is stated that if there was no mint shown on a coin, it means none was named on the coin. For further explanation, “Unknown” was passed on absolutely to coins that were discovered in the 1920s. Exceptions discovered lately might have fallen from scarps during the winter, be they stray finds in fields, and so on. “Modern” may refer to surface finds, or to areas where modern infectivity has occurred. “Undatable” was referred to a proper archaeological level that produced pottery of such poor quality as to be chronologically nondescript. In such cases, the date of the level depends on the coin date.

Keywords: undatable; modern; coin; mint
