The authors of ABC note that provenances of the Eppillus Pegasus type suggest that it may have formed part of the Calleva coinage, although it has traditionally been classified as a Kentish issue. The legend on the obverse, EPPIL COM F, proclaims Epillus as being a son of Commios, although this may have been a spurious claim made simply to bolster his regime.
Estimate: US$ 500
