The Catuvellauni were a Celtic tribe or state of southeastern Britain before the Roman conquest.
Tasciovanus was the first king of the Catuvellauni to put his name on his coins; otherwise he is completely unknown to history. It is based on earlier coin designs with the addition of a legend containing an abbreviation of his name and a bucranium (head of an ox) above the horse. Often earlier coins are badly executed, causing elements of the design to be cut off, as seen here.
