Rozel Hoard (1820)

In 1820, a rock fall resulted in the discovery of a hoard of 920 billon coins, somewhere in the Catel de Roselle, but most likely in the same area as the other Roselle hoards. The entire hoard was purchased by the noted German antiquarian Baron Donop, who published it in two articles... (Hannoversche Numismatische Zeitschrift 1835, 1839); the latter containing illustrations of 754 billon coins and two quarters of Corisolita's billon coins, with 4 Unelli silver coins.
