Carolingian Denier (LIN-F6C6E1)
A Carolingian silver denier found in East Lindsey, Lincolnshire
A Carolingian silver denier issued by Louis the Pious and classified as a Christiana Religio type, which was his third and last coinage. It is possible that it made its way to England prior to Viking incursions but it is equally likely that the Vikings brought this coin with them as plunder after raiding in Frankia.
