Celtic silver coin for Id please

Post by Cantiaci » Sat Apr 13, 2019 8:39 pm

Hi all, out on the usual haunts with vosenos today and a few finds were made. Im sure he will post his finds but this is one of the coins I found today.
Its celtic and incredibly wafer thin and amazed it has only broken as much as it has! Im assuming its the head of Apollo facing three horned beasts on one body and with a horse on the reverse facing to the left.
Found in ploughed field literally on the surface using deus fast/tracking and all standard settings.

If that was meant to make me feel better then it has failed. Your bits and bobs are better than mine. :))

Not on the Celtic front no, field was producing great signals though, more than there has been for years, its been very tightly rolled, very compact, had a few interesting bits but nothing earth shattering ::g
