Armorican Pallas Athena. Head Left, Horse Right Type. Normandy-Picardy. c.80-50 BC. Silver unit. 13mm. 1.12g. Helmeted head of Pallas Athena left./ Horse right, above: two ringed-pellets linked by diagonal line, below: expanded neck torc. LT−, DT−, BMC−, Scheers−, de Jersey−, apparently unpublished with head left and horse right. Good VF, bright silver, bold strike, outstanding head. Found Ludford, Lincs., 20 September 2015. EXCESSIVELY RARE in France, UNIQUE as UK find.

For Gallic comparisons see LT 5967, 5980, 5985 and DT 188-91, 2364-71. One cannot entirely rule out the possibility, unlikely though it seems, that this might be a British imitation from the south coast.
