Amminus Plant. c.AD30-40. Silver unit. 10-12mm. 0.90g. Central plant in circle, AMM INVS around./ Pegasus stepping right, head facing, DVN below, beaded border. ABC 456, VA 192, BMC 2522-23, DK 105, S 188. VF, good silver, bold DVN. VERY RARE only 17 others recorded, six of which are quite badly chipped.

Amminus’ plant has seven stems, Cunobelinus’ has nine (ABC 2906, see No.41 this list). Struck at Duno-, a fortified site in Kent yet to be securely identified. Dr John Sills says Amminus may have been a son of Sego, not Cunobelinus as reported by Suetonius (Gaius 44.2).
