|Spink London is selling the Celtic coin collection of Geoff Cottam on December 2, 2015.|
One of the most stunning rarities within this collection is one of the finest known gold Quarter Staters of the Atrebates and Regni peoples, minted under Tincomarus, (c.20 BC-AD 10). It is a 'Medusa' type.
Celtic, Trinovantes and Catuvellauni, uninscribed coinage, (c.60-20 BC), gold Quarter Stater, 1.25g,
Addedomaros Crescent Cross. c.45-25 BC.
|The Celtic tribes left very little archaeological imprint with which to understand their culture, and almost all written description of them comes from other cultures.|
All that remains are a few artifacts; of which this collection is a treasure trove.
