    What an incredible pile of treasure, Dave! Wow! So many great finds that I don’t even know where to start! Is the second item a fibula? And that button looks ancient!

    Yes, found at the site where I found the Roman silver ring last year!

    It's actually a black tombac (my personal favorite type of button) dating to late 1600's or early 1700's

    What is the silver Roman looking coin?
    That is a Celtic silver coin 150 to 50 B.C. from the Vindeliker tribe.

    Great finds! Especially the quinar of the Vindelici (type Schönaich is good. Celtic coins are the supreme discipline with us. So you have found a very good place. I hope you had a nice time and didn't get scared of the gas prices.

    Drew, when I posted my group reply the forum glitched and kept telling me I needed to enter at least 2 characters. After about the 10th try to reply I just typed 12 to see if it worked and it did!

    Thanks very much! You really know your celtic coins too. The gas was terrible. More than 100 euros to fill up the car! I'm having trouble understanding the translation of "Schönaich." Is it a type of coin or just a word used to describe a pretty coin? Danke mein freund!

    Schönaich is a village in Baden Württemberg. Since this coin was described there for the first time and was common, it was called "Schönaich type" to distinguish it. There is also ,,Type Nauheim,, ,,Type Manching,, Type Prague,, (my favorite) etc. The coin dates to the 1st century bc.

    The Celtic coin of you is a kind of imitation of coins of the tribe of ,,Volca Tectosages,,. They, in turn, took the coin design from drachms of the Hellenistic settlement of Rhoda in Spain. The further to the east the more abstract the coin image became. One side shows the goddess Ceres and the cross was originally the so-called "Rose of Rhoda". This was then dissolved further and further until only a cross remained. I hope I could express myself reasonably.
