The Corieltauvi tribe


Recommended Posts

The Corieltauvi tribe were centred on modern day Leicester extending to the East coast and occupying most of current day `East Midlands' region of England. Their coinage dates from the second century bc.


This particular piece dates approx 50 -40 bc and is referred to being of the `Hosidius' type. That is, it mimics a roman republican denarius of L Hosidius Geta (68 bc)..


Obverse is a boar facing left.with a daisy in a beaded ring above. Reverse is a horse facing left with a bead in a beaded circle below.


This coin approx 0.7g silver
