A much larger hoard was ploughed up, about 7 years ago, on the farm of Mr. Rickaby beside Whorlton, near the borders of our district. The coins were contained within a large silver vase, which being much corroded was broken to pieces by the plough. The coins must have been hid about the time when the Romans forsook Britain; those which I have seen being of the reigns of Valens.
