    The above coins are simply listed as having 
        been found in excavations "legalmente 
        intrapresi," but quantity and distribu-
        tion suggest an early 3rd cent. hd.; 
        two aes grave and one AE of Capua, 
        also listed, as well as a quantity of 
        gold jewelry, presumably do not belong
