Note 153
From Chapter 17 of the Decline & Fall

In the departments of the two counts of the treasury the eastern part of the 'Notitia' happens to be very defective. It may be observed that we had a treasury chest in London, and a gyneceum or manufacture at Winchester. But Britain was not thought worthy either of a mint or of an arsenal. Gaul alone possessed three of the former and eight of the latter.
