A coin found near Devil’s Dyke

Coin found near Devil's Dyke

  • Obverse — A head in profile to the right, the hair, face, nose, and eyes being formed by an extraordinary assemblage of curves
  • Reverse — A horse to the right similarly drawn; below, a boar.
  • Æ weight 90 grains.

This coin is one of a class belonging to and found very frequently in the Channel Islands. They resemble the Gaulish series more than the British, though they are not unfrequently found in England. The present example was discovered near the Dyke, and is of bronze.
