cani qui huius mortalitatis diem clausit extremum. Anno d'nice incarnacionis millesimo cccccxxx° septimo et mensis Aprilis die octavo et sepultus est in hac tumba cuius anime propicietur deus amen.'

The brasses to Dean Sutton and Dean Fyche are the only ones hitherto noticed in Ireland. They are both engraved in Mason's History of St. Patrick's cathedral.

Mrs. Prest exhibited through Mr. Pettigrew, V.P., a silver box, which had been in the possession of her family for a long period. On the lid was engraved a portrait of Edward VI, crowned and surmounted by martial emblems. Beneath the portrait is the following: Edward y° Sixth of the Right Line. Th's puts an end to Edw'rd's coin. H. P. 1596.

It was suggested that the box may have been made of the coinage of Edward VI, from the construction of the last line of the inscription. Sir Fortunatus Dwarris, V.P., exhibited some interesting coins belonging to colonel Watkyns, M.P., lately found near Brecon.

CAESAR. AVGVSTVS. Bare head of Augustus. Rev. SIGNIS RECEPTIS S. P. Q. R. A buckler between two standards.

Numerous as are the coins of Augustus, this reverse appears to be one of such rarity as not to have been recorded in Mr. Akerman's excellent catalogue of Roman coins. It was struck on the recovery of the Legions of Varus. IMP. CAESAR. VESPASIANVS. Rev. PON. MAX. TR. P. COS. V.

A caduceus.

IMP. C. P. LIG. VALERIANVS. Avg. Rev. VICTORIA. AVGG. (Augustorum) Victory with shield and palm.

Eustace Gray, Esq., of Winston, forwarded drawings of an interesting font in Winston church, near Darlington, on which was represented a combat between two dragons, each of which is furnished with a fish's tail, having an acorn at each end. It was referred for future consideration.

Mr. Charles Dew communicated intelligence of the discovery of a stone coffin by some draining men in a field between Caerwent and the cross roads, marked on the ordnance map as "Five Lanes."

Mr. Wakeman also forwarded a notice of this discovery in the following communication:

"A very curious discovery has been made about half a mile west of Caerwent. In cutting drains the workmen opened a grave, what we call a cist, the sides and end formed of flag stones on edge; within this was a stone coffin containing the bones of a tall man. The labourers had rifled the coffin before the proprietor was aware of it, and, from circumstances, there is strong reason to suppose they found some rings or fibulæ among the remains; which, however, is denied, and they have not yet been recovered. The most extraordinary part of the affair is, that the space, about four or five inches between the coffin and sides of the grave,

was filled with small coal! The spot is nearly twenty miles from the nearest coal mines, and, at any time in which we can suppose the interment to have been made, it must have been a very expensive article. As late as a century ago very little coal was consumed in this district. I have not seen the coffin, but Mr. O. Morgan considers it Roman."

Mr. O. Morgan has, since the receipt of this notice, given an account of the discovery at a meeting of the Archæological Institute, by which it appears that it is his intention to make careful investigation of the locality. The subject will, therefore, not be pursued further by the Association. The following is from the report of Mr. Morgan, as given in the Gentleman's Magazine for this month. (p. 63.) "This sepulchre, which presents certain peculiarities of a novel character, consisted of an oblong outer chamber, about 10 feet in length by 3 feet 6 inches in breadth, formed of large thin slabs, neatly squared. Within this receptacle was a large stone coffin, formed of a single block of the sandstone of the district; the space between this cist and the external inclosure being filled closely with small coal, unburnt, rammed closely into the cavity. A large slab, without inscription, covered the coffin, and this lay at a depth of about four feet. Within this receptacle was placed a second coffin of lead, fitting closely, and the lid formed of a plate of lead which had been laid upon four iron bars placed across the cavity for the purpose of supporting it. The coffin, when opened, was full of clear water, in which lay a human skeleton, apparently of a man in the prime of life. No weapon or ornaments, as the workinen asserted, were found in the coffin."

The remainder of the evening was fully occupied by the reading of a paper by George Vere Irving, Esq,," On the Geography of the Wars of the Saxons in Northumberland with the Northern Britons, from the Battle of Menao to that of Kaltraez," which will be printed in the next volume of the Journal.

The Association then adjourned over for the Christmas, to Wednesday, January 24th, 1855.
