Coins ranging from M Antonius (c.f. BC 30) to Trajan (AD 98-117)(S1). "On June 10, 1874, a labourer named William Hart (of Cockfield) found, while ploughing a field near Lavenham Lodge.... in the parish of Lavenham, 197 silver coins, all denarii contained in a rude earthern vessel without handles or cover... It was turned up near the surface of the ground, at the depth of about one foot, as nearly as the finder can say. Of this number, I have seen 184; the others had been dispersed."
