EB0002 Celtic Face / HorseCeltic billon stater , 58-56 BC
Obverse: Head right.
Reverse: Horse and rider right.
Weight: 6.36 g
Notes (courtesy of Yurii P):
This seems to be class II stater of Unelli (group N of series Z in John Hooker's classification) -- imitation of Coriosolite staters by a neighboring Armorica tribe. Just like other billon staters of this type it was probably minted c. 58-56 BC, before or during Viridovix stand off with Roman invaders of Julius Caesar. http://www.writer2001.com/exp0012.htm
