Interpretation

    • A silver coin with a four-legged beast on one side, and 'eadbertus' on the other. It has been identified by Dr. John Naylor as a silver sceat of King Eadbhert (king of Northumbria AD37-58). More specifically, it is a Booth's Class F coin of Eadbhert's coinage with an unusual back-to-front S, which narrows it down to a specific issue in the middle decades of the 8th century. It is in good condition, but is well-worn, suggesting it may have remained in circulation for some time.
