Tuesday I started off on a field that looked sticky under foot and to be honest it never disappointed it was horrendous to say the least. I persevered for an hour but it got the better of me again. Same farm different field the other side of the hill and yes this field also broke me after 2 hrs. So I went to my medieval field in the hope of some luck, only took 20 or 30 steps and up popped the cut half in picture short cross and a Henry I think not ID it yet, unfortunately as this field has crop in it digging made a mess so once again I had to leave. I made the decision to head a mile or so away to another farm which being on higher ground and rotted flat stubble I knew would be a safe bet for searching. over the years this field has produced some memorable finds but its one of those fields that you can search for 5 hrs with little to show, any way after 2 hrs up popped this nice little Silaqua.....After the terrible start the roman gods shined...lol.
Well rite now I'm packed and heading off to a roman site, this time pasture but hoping the grass is not too long, let you know the outcome....Happy Hunting  Wink

Nice Smiley still waiting for a siliqua or a Tealby...

As I'm sure you know - the siliqua is of Julian as Augustus, but before he grew his beard out Smiley - Arles mint, third workshop. c. 361AD

The cut half is a Tealby (Henry II) - there are some faint letters on the reverse, but I can't see them well enough to see if I can make out a mint or monneyer.

Glad that it hasn't rained too much this week - hoping it is going to be dry on Sunday.

Beautiful coin once again Paul.  You sure do spend a lot of time on the fields, probably even more than me and Ron, and you definitely deserve all the success you have.  Brilliant stuff!!!  Really gets the forum buzzing every time you post.
Cheers and Happy Digging!!  Tom.

From what I have seen over the last few years on DW, I think Paul could start a museum that we would all pay to visit.
Keep it up a Paul, I am like others amazed at the quality of your finds and the follow up descriptions making us all more knowledgeable. 👍😊
