Also it's fascinating that the hoard make up seems to be only from the time described (96-211), as I don't see any that appear to predate Nerva. Could those earlier coins not have made it to the area? Could that be a dating for when the area became part of the empire and only received post-Flavian coins from the mint and didn't have much outsider commerce with those earlier coins moving through?
It could be what would happen if Rome pulled the army out of the area and stopped sending new coins into the local economy which continued to use the ones they had locally. How will we know?
