ABC 2637; Van Arsdell 1798; BMC 1664-5; SCBC 237. Extremely rare. Attractive toning. Good very fine.

From the KJG Collection of British Celtic Coins. Ex Rudd 133 (January 2014), 47; M. Rich Colection.

Tasciovanus was one of the greatest kings of Iron Age Britain, only overshadowed by his son, Cunobelinus. His grave, if it is indeed his and not the grave of another important royal, at Lexden, Colchester, contained a medallion of Augustus, often a diplomatic gift bestowed by the emperor of Rome himself. This suggests he likely had close ties with the Roman Empire.
