"Easter Sunday 1976 provided a memorable experience for John D. Shepherd of the Springhead Excavation Group. Excavating within an early structure on the site he uncovered a group of five gold coins closely packed together in the clay floor. There was no surviving trace of any container possibly suggesting a small bag of cloth or leather. The coins were aurei of first century date, four bearing the head of Nero and the fifth of Titus, all minted between 58 and 75 AD"
