This probably pertains to the work of John Speed, whose atlas "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain" also contained individual county maps. These were prepared for engraving in about 1610, and first appeared in atlas form two years later. They became a standard reference and were still in use well into the 18th century.

Smiffy. I find your list of place names very interesting. Could you please enlighten me on the significance of 1610, when they all seem to become the modern spelling?

This seems to have gone seriously off-topic. I'll have a bit of a sort out when I get home after work.

Yes, if you remove the preceding paragraph I posted, you could come to the conclusion you stated. However, the problem is that the paragraph IS there. Plus your paragraph says of 1st/2nd century forgery that it was relatively rare, not that it didn't exist. They have certainly found forgeries from then.

I thought you said you currently had a ban - why would this arise from an edit "years back"?
The original "coin moulds" (in passing, not quite the same as "coin pellet moulds") was changed to "coin dies" at 16:41 on 27 June 2012 by user Wetman with the edit summary "Coins are struck not cast ...".  Subsequently at 11:58 on 6 June 2014 Martin of Sheffield provided a citation for the coin moulds/dies: "Detsicas 1983 cited by Howell 2014 p 40".  Howell does indeed refer to "coin moulds" in a passing reference during an article on excavation in Furfield Quarry.  Now the question arises: were these moulds associated with a mint which a casual reader would assume, or are they "coin pellet moulds" for counterfeiters and jewelers?  It would be nice to get a date on these, since the article you cite below seems to imply this was a late Roman problem.

This was an edit years back. I was scrolling back looking for changes in the relevant paragraph.

I'm confused.  WP's entry for the history of Rochester was last changed by a human at 08:16 on 6 December 2019.  That was merely a technical change, before that the previous change was at 23:17 on 2 March 2019.

Thanks, I had a try at your suggestion. It beat me and I am now on a four day ban! It looks more complex than I had supposed. I looked through the previous edits and saw that someone have previously changed the coin moulds to coin dies (evidently without checking the actual quoted source).


I've enjoyed looking into this subject. I kind of wish the discussion had continued longer.😀


Looking forward to more place names until Time Team are allowed out to dig again!
