012.16 During the process of Cultivation in the year 1852, there was found on the Hill of Megray a Small Urn containg upwards of 200 Silver Denari, all Roman. They consisted of Coins of the Caesars Claudius, Nero, Galba, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian, and the Emperors Nerva, Trajan, and Adrian. Some of the Coins are now in possession of Mr R, Brown of Megray and R, Duthie Stonehaven but most of the Coins were sent to the Queen's Remembrancer in Edinburgh. The summit of the above named hill can be seen from Raedykes, the Bay of Stonehaven, and from the site of the Camp near Fetteresso Manse, and is supposed to have been a Roman Out Post.
