    • This coin is a Roman sestertius from the reign of the Roman emperor Maximinus. Imprinted are the words “MAXIMINVS PIVS AVG GEM” and “FIDES MILITVM S C”, as well as Maximinus’ head on one side and Fides, the goddess of trust on the other. The coin dates somewhere around 236-238AD and was probably placed inside Victoria Cave as an offering from a Romano-British cave cult. Accessioned in the T Lord Collection.
