Republic denarius


Dear members,

I can't find this denarius from the republic. Who can help? It could be a celtic imitation, if so what proto type?

Thank you
Best regards

Looks like a Geto-Dacian hybrid.  The reverse has a Triga instead of a quadriga so that may help.  I think the X on the reverse is supposed to be the spokes from the wheel. 

Here's a similar one:

Thank you Jay, I agree. Apart from the triga another interesting deatil is the trident. We will probably never know what the engraver was intending....
