Description

Small ancient silver coin in the stylized type of the Celtic peoples.  The Celts copied Greek coinage, namely the Phillip II tetra-drachm, and the artwork became more abstract over time.  Ending up with charming disjointed, puppet like, images of a horse.

This coin's horse is still very recognizable but the rider has disappeared.  The horse's legs are beginning to show puppet-like disjointedness that is typical of celtic coinage.

Dated: circa 200 BC

Size approx 15.5mm in a hand fabricated 18kt gold mount.

One of a kind with Certificate of Authenticity.

Chain is available separately.  See Chains
