Thanks,  @Roman Collector from a quick browse this looks like an interesting download - I was drawn to some of the discussions about barbarous holed, and plugged denarii:

Holed denarii were not uncommon in barbarian regions. The process of drilling was precise, avoiding damage to the coin's imagery or text, suggesting that these holes were likely used for wearing the coins as pendants or for other decorative purposes.  One coin with an unfinished hole even suggesting that it was a clockwise drill used.
