Banded flan with wreath motif, two outline crescents and two ringed-pellets in centre, forming two ‘sad’ hidden faces./ Full-bodied horse prancing left, with corded mane, pellet under head, ringed-pellet above, wavy branch below, probably [DVBNOVALLAVNOS] above.

We’ve never seen a Dubnovellaunos Branch stater with so much plain space above and below the horse. Neither has anyone else. Dr John Sills says: “This one is from my obverse die 10, but the reverse is new” (pers.comm. 8.3.2018).
