Description: "A rare potin of the Celtic tribe living on the upper part of the Seine river. Very clear helmet and attractive reddish patina. This tribe is generally accepted as part of the Leuci tribe however they were very war-like substantiated by the severed head on the reverse of this coin. Typically their warriors kept the severed heads of their enemies about their saddle horns and their villages were "decorated" by piles of enemy skulls. Not exactly the perfect neighbors!"
