This is a replica Roman money box from the National Roman Legion Museum. Coins could be collected and saved throughout the year. Soldiers could then use the coins for activities like gambling during Saturnalia, although they commonly gambled for nuts.

This object was chosen and photographed by Somerton Primary School to complement their video about Saturnalia. This was part of the 2016 Kids in Museums Takeover Day at the National Roman Legion Museum, Caerleon.
