Norfolk God. Caricature Type. Talbot Late Face Horse Moustachioed, Type 91b. c.AD 25-43. Silver unit. 13mm. 1.09g. Male head right, with short spiky hair and boarskin headdress, branch behind, pellet below./ Horse right, with cabled mane, cabled arc above, kite shape below. ABC-, VA 792, 794, BMC 3605-759, S 434. EF, bright silver, sharply struck. A very pretty piece in pristine condition, as fresh as the moment it was minted.

Dr John Talbot believes that this type could have been minted up to the time of the Boudican rebellion, AD 60. Robert Van Arsdell, who first attributed the type to ‘Queen Boudicca’ in 1987 (SNC, June 1987, p.150), will doubtless be delighted.
