Application of the criteria

The remaining evidence will be weighted at the same level as for cemeteries. Objects with Christian symbols warrant the maximum ranking: the lead tanks, graffiti on sherds, objects with little intrinsic value incorporating Christian symbols (with a discounting for more valuable portable items) and Christian villas; Christian hoards with chi-rho or similar, three-quarters; hoards with less explicit Christian symbols, one-half; destruction of pagan artefacts or sites, one-half; with re-use by Christian, three-quarters; and datable pagan hoards, one-third.
