    From the BVH Collection. Ex Early American History Auctions, 5 June 2004, lot 1075.

    Rudd notes in his 2010 publication Ancient British Coins (ABC), that Tincomarus was misidentified as 'Tincommius' until 1998. The meaning of his name is 'great in peace'. He ruled the Regini for 30 years. He was also responsible for the stylistic change of this coinage from the abstract head/horse staters to those bearing a tablet/horseman. Rudd describes him as a 'blatant self-publicist and the first British king to dress his coins in Roman clothes, often adopting and adapting the political imagery of Octavian/Augustus' (Rudd, p. 67)
