Denomination : Billon stater.

Size : 19.2 x 20.0 mm  Weight : 6.14 grams.

Reference : Seaby Greek - 110.  Spink British - 16 (class 3).

Most coins of this type were struck by the Coriosolites in N. W. Gaul and taken to the Channel Islands when the people fled there during the Gallic invasion by Julius Caesar.  It is likely that the type continued to be struck on the Channel Islands for some time after that.
