This coin is, therefore, simply not supposed to be in Haltern, unless we accept that it was brought from Hispania to the Lippe valley by a soldier serving in one of the Spanish legions that was transferred to the Rhine: I Germanica and V Alaudae.
It is possible that Haltern played an important role in the administration of the subjected territories, because the camp has too many large houses.
