Aulerci or Carnutes or ... (?) (Celtic Gaul, area between the lower valleys of the Seine and the Loire)
AR quinarius, circa 60-50 B.C.
Human head left, the slice of the neck beaded. The hair is composed of thick locks. The fact that one of them, curved, goes up on the cheek, evoking a paragnathide and that another falling on the neck evoking a neckguard, could indicate that the cap would be a helmet. From the chin escape six filaments each terminated by a fine globule. All in a dotted circle.
Free horse left, the mane formed of parallel lines of which the extremity is dotted. Below, globule in a beaded circle. In front and beneath, centripetal legend, CE-ΠΠII-OC (?). All in a dotted circle.
1,82 g. Cf. LT pl. XXVI, J43 var. ; cf. DT S 2499A (AE) var. ; cf. Loui-Pol Delestrée, La légende CEΠΠIIOC au nord-ouest de la Gaule celtique, CN 208 (2016) pp. 15-19 var. Unpublished. Nice patina. Almost extremely fine
