A billon stater of the Durotriges tribe which inhabited Dorset in the south west of England, and parts of Somerset and West Hampshire prior to the Roman invasions.

 

This type is given as circa 60BC -30AD. The Roman conquest of Gaul saw trade between the Durotriges and Gauls drop off and this has been linked to the declining content of silver in successive issues of these coins.
