“The Cheriton Wheel issue is the only southern region type showing clear influence from Gallo-Belgic F staters, Scheers series 26,” says Dr John Sills (DK, p.189). The chevron cloak-lines, for example. It’s twelve years since we’ve sold a Cheriton Wheel stater, named after the Cheriton, Hampshire hoard, c.1982-96. This is the only one we’ve had which clearly shows the characteristic chevron cloak-lines. Published in Divided Kingdoms, p.248 (this coin).
