Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Late Iron Age gold stater of the Western Region / Dobunni, dating from c. AD 20-43. The coin is struck for the ruler Eisu, and appears to be a variant of both ABC 2075 (Cottam et al's 'Eisu Ricu') and ABC 2078 (Cottam et al's 'Eisu Tree'). The style of the horse suggests it maybe ABC 2078, which is a more common issue than ABC 2075.
