The Iceni Tribe


Recommended Posts

an example of a silver unit of the Iceni tribe which inhabited the East Anglia region of England. This coin was struck circa 20 -50 ad during the time of Prasutagus,the wealthy and pro-Roman king of the Iceni. His wife, Boudicca was later to rise against the Romans.


The obverse has conjoined crescents central to the coin. The reverse has a galloping horse to the left and underneath is ECEN (retrograde in this example). The Iceni were the only Celtic tribe to put their tribal name to their coinage
