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.

A complete gold Iron Age stater of Cunobelin (Eastern series, attributed to the Catuvellauni and Trinovantes), dating to the period AD 8-41. The coin is a 'Cunobelinus Plastic' type and was struck at Camulodunon. The flan is irregular (oval) in shape and the reverse die has been struck off-flan, as the lower inscription under the horse is completely absent. The coin is in very good condition with only one area of wear to the obverse, however this may be from a worn die as the rest of the detail on both faces of the coin is in exceptional condition. ABC 2786 / BMC 1809-1812, VA 2010.

A worn Iron Age silver unit of the Belgae dating from c. 65 - 40 BC. The obverse is very similar to ABC 845 (Cottam et al's 'Basingstoke JJ' type (ABC 845)) but the reverse is different. The reverse depicts a horse advancing right, with a spiral sun above and two dot-in-pellet motifs in front. Below the horse's front leg are three dot-in-pellet motifs with a fourth below the hoof, similar to the 'Kingsclere Horse Box' type (ABC 887). Philip de Jersey concurs that this coin may be a new variant of ABC 845, however it is also 'arguably a new type'.

A complete copper alloy penannular bracelet, with a rectangular cross section which varies slightly in thickness. The terminals of the possible bracelet are rounded off but there is no decoration here or at any point around the loop. The metal has suffered some damage and corrosion. Although this object is just a rod of metal, it does appear to have been bent round purposefully and would be the correct size for a bracelet - there are no diagnostic features however the patina of the object is the same as other Middle to Late Iron Age objects from the area, so a date in the range of c. 3…

An Iron Age cast copper-alloy potin (Thurrock MA type) of the Cantiaci (Kent) / South-Eastern Region, dating to the later 2nd century BC (Reece Period 1), c. 120 -100 BC. Obverse: Head of Apollo left; reverse: Butting bull, right. cf. ABC no. 120; VA 1406. Thurrock / Kent Primary potins are closely linked to continental examples and a number of the sub-types classified as Thurrock or Kent Primary types are likely to be continental imports rather than of the Cantiaci.
