In addition to the damage to the bezel, the hoop is broken on one of the shoulders. There is a good parallel in the Thetford treasure, although the ring in question is composed of a beaded wire hoop and retains its settin…

A complete gold quarter-stater of British QC type attributed to the Regini and Atrebates, dating c. 55-45 BC. This coin is an unlisted and apparently unknown variant of Cottam et al's 'Selsey Dahlia' type, ABC 503; BMC 478-84. The main differences between this example and ABC 503 are that the horse faces left instead of right and that the 'dahlia' or floral-sun motif above the horse is of slightly cruder style. The coin is relatively unworn and is in good condition, although the horse's tail is off flan (Elizabeth Cottam 2015, pers. comm). A coin of the host-type that this example i…
