Find


The following was noted in the Society of Antiquaries' Donations Book in 1863: "Mr. Thornhill, Surgeon, has presented a Greek colonial coin of Trajan, with the reverse of Jupiter Ammon's head, found ... in digging a garden at Bulman's Village, Newcastle. The Chairman observed that the old north road passed along the foot of those gardens, and that its hollow may still be traced". The coin is presumably in the Society's Coin Collection.
