The range of centuries in one small stash is astounding. Suggests that the stash is older than the 7th century I guess?

How would that be possible? The artifacts, the coins, go back to the 4th, they say, but the most recently minted coin defines the "terminus ante quem" (nothing earlier than this). They could have been buried yesterday, but they could not be locked up before the coins were minted.

I meant "no older than" the 7th Century for the reasons you suggested
