Ave!

Danube Celts, AR Drachm, Sirmium, ca. 200-100 BC

Derived from the Macedonian Kingdom of Philip II

Good Silver; 12mm/0.8gm

Con/ A few and negligible inclusions, otherwise, Extremely Fine; boldly struck on each side; superior image of Celtic-styled Zeus and an extraordinarily superb example of a Celtic-styled horse with perhaps a miniscule rider.

Obv/ Laureate head of Zeus right

Rev/ Free horse prancing left

Ref/ None...too rare!

Seller's Note/ Oh my goodness, this tiny silver coin is only 1mm thick! The only reason it survived in this condition after over 2000 years in the ground is due to the high quality silver and, being so small, it could not be plow hit. A spectacular example and way under priced, trust me. ;-)

Settled by Celtic tribes, Sirmia was a fertile region of the Pannonian Plain in Europe, between the Danube and Sava rivers. Today, it is divided between Serbia in the east and Croatia in the west.
