The large central vine leaf is Verica’s answer to Cunobelinus’s large central barley ear. Both kings were keen on bold ‘trademarks’ and brash branding. This is a particularly well centred vine leaf and an exceptionally well preserved piece of gold with no plough-soil scuffs or scratches on any of the plain surfaces.
