Tasciovanus Celtic Coins for Sale

Tasciovanus was the grandson, or perhaps the son, of Cassivellaunus, and the father of Cunobelin and Epaticcus. He was ruler of the tribe from circa 20 BC. He was also the first to renew hostilities towards the Trinovantes, flouting the long-standing agreement between Caesar and his own grandfather Cassivellaunus. Between 15 BC and AD 10 he issued a series of coins bearing the mint mark CAMV [lodunum], indicating that for a time at least, he took possession of the Trinovantian capital; but it appears that he withdrew following the advent of Augustus in Gaul. His later coin issues bear the inscription TASCIO RICON where the word 'rigon' is usually translated as 'king'.
