Full description

1996. Metal detected finds.
Papal Bull of Clement VII. (S1).
Two Popes of this name. The first (1378 to 1394) was not supported by English throne, so the above probably belongs to the second Clement VII (1523 to 1534).
See (S1).
V. Fryer (NCM), 11 June 1997.

Previously reported bull is clearly of Clement VII of Rome (1523 to 1534) not of Avignon.
Information from T. Pestell (NCM).
A. Rogerson (NLA), 20 December 2001.
