Abstract
﬈e coin complex of Merendree is the only non-military one in the northern territory of the civitas Menapiorum that is large enough to allow a statistical study. We offer a catalogue of all 289 recorded finds and analyse a spatially concentrated sample of 253 coins. Some attest the presence in the area of an older stock of Augustan coins, but the ensemble is consistent with the start of nucleated settlement in the Flavian period. Non-monetary finds possibly indicate a rural sanctuary and a limited military presence. Merendree continued as a regional centre until the end of the Gallic Empire. During this time the composition of the ensemble correlates well with other centres in the civitates of the Menapians and Nervians. After ad 274 the influx of coins stopped abruptly. Archaeology shows a continued occupation throughout the late third, fourth and fi﬇h centuries leading up to a revival in the Merovingian period. A few Constantinian coins and small militaria suggest a brief revival of coin attraction in the 330s connected to a renewed military presence.
