The Seaton Down coin hoard consists of approximately 22,888 coins. The vast majority are 4th century nummi associated with Constantine I, his family and other sub-emperors of the time. A few examples of earlier radiates were found with the hoard but these must have been in accidental circulation at the time.
The coins were found with 3 iron ingots and excavations recovered a few associated finds that may be associated with a leather sack that once contained the coins.
The hoard was found by metal-detectorist Laurence Egerton who was detecting on land belonging to Clinton Devon Estates near Seaton.
