OBVERSE: Helmeted head left with large ear, torc on neck and zig zag
decoration in front
REVERSE: Horse left with crescent armed star or daisy above, pellet
in circle below and in front of horse.
An extremely rare unpublished piece with only two others known, but
from different dies, both from West Sussex. The helmeted head probably
develops from coins of Lower Normandy, which bear the head of Pallas Athena.
The style of the reverse is basically Atrebatic, and given the two findspots
that's not an unlikely attribution. But they are probably quite early, perhaps
struck soon after the Gallic War.
