AV Stater ca. 60–25 BC, Belgian Gaul, BELLOVACI Devolved and disjointed male head to right, with prominent nose, large eye and star on the temple. Rev. horse galloping right, radiant suns above and below.Vgl. Scheers série 25, fig. 161.The Bellovaci were one of the larger and more powerful Belgic tribes in northern Gaul. Their territory extended from modern Beauvais along the northern coastline to the Oise River. Julius Caesar's conquering army encountered them in 52-53 BC. The Bellovaci were led by their king Correus, a canny tactician and a fierce opponent of Roman influence in the Gauls. Correus led an army of 6,000 picked warriors and 1,000 cavalrymen who, by Caesar's own account, played havoc with the Roman supply lines and foraging parties. Caesar learned in advance of one such ambush and deliberately sent a force into the woodlands to draw out the Bellovaci. Once they were fully engaged, he led another party of reinforcements into the battle and counter-enveloped the enemy. Correus refused to surrender and 'fell pierced with many wounds'. Once defeated, the surviving Bellovaci made formal submission to Caesar and remained loyal Roman allies thereafter.5.95 g. A pleasing example of this rare type. R Nearly very fine/Very fine +
