Title:   Frankish Coin Hoard
Supervisor:   Michael Laughy
Category:   Coins
Description:   West and adjacent to Modern Wall 5, we excavated 12th-13th c. A.D. fill, in some places a half meter deep or more. The fill was remarkably uniform in content throughout. Typical pottery included: fine sgraffito; slip painted ware; inscribed ware; plain glaze; brown and green glaze; polychrome glaze; Byzantine lamp fragments; coarse wares; and cooking wares. Within this fill, we discovered a slightly scattered hoard of 43 coins. At the time of this summary, the legible coins are Frankish, and date to the early 13th c. A.D.
