In August 2018 a Saudi Arabian source provided us with photographs and some data about a small hoard of 16 late Roman solidi and 7 Aksumite gold coins, found on 29 July 2018 at an undetermined location in the Abyan Governorate of Yemen, northeast of the city of Aden. We do not know if the hoard was found in a container, and have no information about any archaeological context. We are reasonably sure that this group comprised only a small fraction of the original find, which was said to have contained 50-200 or more gold coins. However, we think that we record a typical sample of the original hoard, whose post and ante quem termini were probably the same as those of the analogous al-Madhāriba hoard.
