Did you know?

The Dobunni were a tribe that lived on the British Isles prior to the Roman invasion of Britain.

Description

On coins in this same series the obverse legend (BODVOC) changes position. On some it is central across the field and complete, on others above and incomplete as seen here. As far as is known Bodvoc was one of the rulers of the Dobunni tribe. The horse has become even more crude, made up of lines and pellets and rough curves. The spokes of the wheel fail to meet nearly at the center.
