Celts, Danube Region, Imitative of Philip II of Macedonia, c. Late 4th Century B.C.

Celtic tribes struck coins from the late 4th century B.C. until the late 1st century B.C. They were introduced to coinage by the Greeks, with whom the traded, and for whom they sometimes worked as mercenaries. Tribal coins often copied Greek designs, especially Macedonian coins from the time of Philip II of Macedon and his son, Alexander the Great. The copies tended to become increasingly abstract over time. The very nearly Greek style of this coin suggests it was an early issue.
