Celtic Silver Coin circa 200 BC (110)
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
