Did you know?

Cunobeline (Strong as a Dog), was a king in pre-Roman Britain from about AD 9 until about AD 40.

Description

The ear of corn or wheat is frequently found on coins of Cunobeline. The workmanship on the horse is not as good as another in the collection, 1969.152. The relative proportions of the head and neck are poor and the animal has acquired an additional joint in its right foreleg, though this does not appear on all specimens.
