Tumulus about the usual size; grave three feet deep, with its feet pointing to the east. Bones pretty sound; teeth firm and regular; burnt coffin: two fair coins. One of them has, on one side, the head of Constantine the Great, laureated and this legend, FL. VAL. CONSTANTINVS. NOB. c.; reverse, GENIO POPVLI ROMANI; exergue, P.L.N; a genius, standing, holds in one hand a patera, and, in the other, a cornucopiæ. This is of the second brass. The other, of the third size, also has on one side the same emperor's head, laureated, and this legend, IMP. c. CONSTANTINVS. P.F. AVG. On the other side is this legend, S.P.Q.R. OPTIMO. PRINCIPI; three military ensigns erected. They are very common coins. Here was also the blade of a knife and some nails.
