orator

Here is my best explanation:

'speaker' is the definition.
(orator is a kind of speaker)

'gold by a hill' is the wordplay.
'gold' becomes 'or' ('or' is the heraldic name for gold).
'by' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'hill' becomes 'tor' (tor is a kind of hill).
'or'+'a'+'tor'='ORATOR'

'finds' is the link.
