The Dobunni were one of the tribes believed to have issued coins before the Romans' arrival.
This piece comes from Dobunni territory, the tribe occupying an area in the Cotswold (Severn estuary) country. The names found on them are probably those of chieftains rather than of kings. Names such as Catti, Antedrig, Inam, and Comux appear on various pieces, all names unknown in history. The horse has now become crude on his journey to the wilder parts of the country, but the wheel of the lost chariot remains.
