Object type: COIN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Iron Age, struck or hammered, copper alloy - bronze unit of Eppillus of the Atrebates and Regni but who held territory in North Kent at this period as well as North Hampshire minting different coins in each County. Alternately, he could have moved into Canterbury after his brother Tincomarus had pushed him out of Silchester. Either way it is feasible that Tasciouvanos-King of the Catuvellauni (North Thames) may have helped Eppillus to take his own family to claim territory south of the Thames. Obverse: Bearded head left with legend EPPI.CF in front. Inscription: EPPI.CF. Reverse…

An incomplete, Post Medieval C16-17th, cast, copper alloy strap loop once with integral loop. Comparable with class F type 3 single recurving hooked clasp but once with a long blunt hook.
