Ex Pierre Bastien Collection (Part II, Numismatica Ars Classica 114, 6 May 2019), lot 855; Ciani & Vinchon (6 May 1955), lot 439; 1922 Arras – Beaurains Hoard.

The Beaurains Treasure or Arras Treasure is the name of an important Roman coin hoard found in Beaurains, a suburb of the city of Arras, northern France on 21 September 1922. Soon after its discovery by workmen in a clay pit much of the treasure was dispersed. Agnes Baldwin Brett, the first female curator of the American Numismatic Society (1910-1913), wrote for The Numismatic Chronicle Volume XIII, 1933, an article about this hoard titled “The Aurei and Solidi of the Arras Hoard”, in which she writes that “its final reconstruction will be for ever impossible in an exact sense. The general composition of the hoard is, however, well known.” The largest portion of the hoard can be found in the local museum in Arras and in the British Museum.

The final winners of all Triton XXIV lots will be determined during the live online sale that will be held on 19-20 January 2021. This lot is in Session Four, which begins 20 January 2021 at 2 PM ET.
