Philip de Jersey writes: "Probably an early issue of the Catuvellauni, c. 40 BC, since most of the recorded examples are from the west (Herts etc) rather than the east of the North Thames. It has been suggested that the animal on the obverse is a hare, with long ears, but it also appears to have a long tail and may have a strong mythical element".
