Letter to the editor --
Coin from Folkestone.
by Philip Dunn.

Dear Madam,

A list of coins found by John Gowar and myself on Sugar Loaf Hill, Folkestone was compiled on page 96 of KAR Number 33. One coin, however, was not included on this list and I should like to pass the details on now. The coin is an AR silver quinarius dated to 41 BC and this very early date is unusual. The obverse shows the laureate head of Apollo facing right with a lyre behind. The reverse is Lucifera standing facing and holding two long torches; on right P. CLODIVS, on left M.F. The coin is illustrated in Seaby's Roman Coins, page 73, No. 294.
