Atrebates Epaticcus Gold Stater 20-40AD – extremely rare
18x16mm, 5.31g

ABC1343, S355
A fabulous gold stater, struck under king Epaticcus during the British Iron Age over 2000 years ago! Not only is this coin in superb condition but it’s extremely rare too! There are only 24 staters of Epaticcus known, 13 of which are housed in the British museum. Epaticcus is most famous for expelling king Verica from Southern England with the backing of Cunobelinus prompting the Claudian Invasion in 43 A.D.

A very attractive example of this rare type, a little softly struck on the reverse but good detail and full inscription, both sides! This coin a part of the famous Vine Leaf Hoard (AKA Chawton Hoard). More information on this hoard can be found on our ‘Hoards’ section of the website.

Provenance will be provided, this coin is recorded with the Celtic Coin Index and will be accompanied by a booklet giving further information about the Vine Leaf Hoard.
