PAS PUBLIC-58C3B7 -
A complete silver unit of uninscribed type, probably struck for the Regni from c. 50-20 BC. The coin broadly corresponds to Bean's type QsT1-6 (Bean 2000, p. 70, fig. 3.8, p. 232), and has been struck on a slightly dished flan. Obverse; devolved bust right with crescent-shaped hair curls. Reverse; horse running right, two ring-in-pellet motifs to right and left, devolved comb or lyre below. This type is not published in ABC, and is probably a variant of Bean's main series. This rare coin imitates issues originating from central Armorica (Brittany) with a number of QsT1-6 examples also known from Hayling Island (see Briggs et al 1993, plate 2, nos. 36-39). Two other coins of this type have been recorded on the PAS database; see records HAMP-78A1A6 and SUR-832149, with others listed on the PAS. Their distribution is apparently restricted to West Sussex. Weight: 1.0 g., Diameter: 13.4 mm..
