This is also technically an imitation, although you need quite an imagination to work out what it's imitating.

'Cranbourne Chase' Stater, 50-10BC

image.png.edfbdc37c2c5cb888f046a9b487fc0e6.png

Durotriges, Dorset. Silver, 19mm, 4.78g. Head of Apollo with wreath, cloak and crescents. Horse left of disjointed pellets, lines and crescents, rectangular head, body of crescents, four vertical legs, three lines for tail; pellet below; twelve pellets above; chariot wheel behind (ABC 2157; VA 1235-1; S 366). From the Winterborne Stickland (Dorset) Hoard 2013, found close to Maiden Castle, the capital of the Durotriges. PAS: WILT-DF1BB7

Like many Iron Age coins, the design derived from a 4th Century BC Philip II of Macedon gold stater with a biga reverse.

Danubian Celts:
Drachm versions of the 2 below seem a little harder to find. Tets were used in trade, Drachmae were used in local commerce...
