A worn but complete gold stater, attributed to the Southern tribes of the Atrebates or Regini, dating to 60-50 BC. A Selsey-type, probably ABC 485, the 'Selsey two-face' type. The obverse is quite worn and details are hard to make out, however the attributes of the reverse suggest that ABC 485 is most likely.
