Abstract

The coin hoard of Saint-Vincent-de-Mercuze III, discovered in 1961, belongs to the category of mixed hoards combining antoniniani and aureliani which have been struck prior to the reform of 294, and later nummi. Its chronology extends from the reign of Gallienus to that of Constantine. Its terminus can be set at 312 A.D., which places it in an uncommon category of hoards of the Tetrarchic period and invites us to place its deposit in the context of the aftermath of the battle of the Milvian Bridge, in October 312, and of the monetary reform of 313. The catalogue published in 1961 contains errors that justify the re-examination and re-publication of the hundred and sixty-one coins of a recently rediscovered part of the hoard or preserved in public collections.
