Total number of coins
Coins run from Mark Antony to Trajan Decius, although it has been argued that the last coins could be intrusive. In that case, the hoard would end with issues of Gordian III. 81,096 (and not 81,044!) coins were published in 1934 by Mouchmov, after a further 20,000+ coins had been dispersed. The total number of coins therefore exceeds 101,096 specimens. The difference between our comput and the 81,044 coins mentioned in the original publication resides in an error in counting the number of coins of Commodus (3146, whereas 3191 is correct) and reporting the correct number of coins of Caracalla in the table p. 6 of Mouchmov's publication. Note that further errors have occurred for Trajan (p. 21, last three entries, where numbers do not add up).
