Celtic Æ Tetradrachm, Imitative Issue of Greek Alexander

Beginning about 300 BC, the Danubian Celtic tribes began to imitate the images of Philip and Alexander the Great coins (Zeus obverse and Horse reverse) but in their own particular style. 

Copper alloy; 25mm/10.2gm

Obv/ Laur. bust of Zeus r. (Celtic-style) ;-)

Rev/ Horse prancing l. (big body, small head, crescent above)

Con/ VF+ for the type, glossy black patina.

Seller's Note/ Celtic images on coins are always delightful and this one is a real gem.
