This is a silver quinarius of the Sequani, a celtic tribe inhabiting the Besancon region of France. The obverse bears the legend Q Doci (Quintus Docios?) and presumably his helmeted bust. The reverse bears the legend Sam F (Sam Filius?) and a galloping horse. Quintus Docius was probably a Sequani magistrate in favour with Rome. This coin was probably struck approx 57/56 BC according to most recent research findings but otherwise generally asserted as 65-50 BC.
