Tribe : Iceni.

Denomination : Silver Unit

Date : ca. AD 60.

Reference : VA-790-1.  Spink British - 434.  Sear Greek -181.

Size : 12.5 x 13.5 mm.  Weight : 1.25 grams.

Grade : gVF with a fairly good strike on both sides.

Obverse : Male head right.

Reverse : Horse running right, with a triangular symbol above, and a diamond shaped symbol below.

Van Arsdell attributed this type to the Celtic Queen Boudicca, but the evidence for this is at best tenuous.  The head on the obverse has a mustache and so we can say for sure it is not a portrait of Boudicca.
