FAKE – In BoC 13/1, 1988 we published a group of aurei and Antoninus Pius, allegedly from a hoard of several hundred pieces emanating from Jordan. Another group has surfaced in England, with aurei of Augustus in equal percentage. The coins are covered in dirt and there is just one pair of dies for each emperor.
