This particular type of Eastern Celtic tetradrachm was probably minted somewhere in Pannonia during the 2nd or possibly the first Century BC.

Denomination : Bronze tetradrachm.  These are normally refered to as billon, but the alloy is so low in silver that by this point I think it is better to refer to them as bronze rather than billon.

Size : 20.1 x 21.2 mm.   Weight :  8.05 grams.

Reference : These are fairly common, yet I have no yet found a reference for them.

Grade : VF and nice for this issue.

Obverse : Head of Zeus right.  The style is very crude, but you can clearly make out the nose, beard and hair.

Reverse : Boy on horse back left.
