The name for this type, first first named by German numismatists, is Kugelwange, which means ball cheek in German. The type was struck by the Celtic Skordoski tribe in Syrmia, a fertile region in Europe, on the Pannonian Plain, between the Danube and Sava rivers. Today, it is divided between Serbia in the east and Croatia in the west.
