Nora Hoard – a possible votive deposit of Romano-Campanan coins from Sardinia

Deposited c. 230-225 BCE

Just reading Gorini’s admirable write up! V nice to have an archaeological context! I agree with his historical framing and lean strongly to his interpretation of it as possibly votive but not likely constitutionally foundational in anyway.
