    BRITAIN. Regini-Atrebates. Verica (ca. AD 10-40). AV stater (17mm, 5.35 gm, 6h). NGC XF 5/5 - 4/5. Atrebatic K (Vine leaf type).

    Ex Barry Murphy, private purchase with old dealer tag; from the Vine Leaf Hoard.

    Verica, a king of the Atrebates along the southern coast of Britain, apparently ruled from the locale of the later Fishbourne Roman Palace in west Sussex. He seems to have enjoyed friendly relations with Rome. His territories were overrun by Caratacus in about 40 BC, and Verica's appeal to Rome for help provided the pretext for Claudius' invasion of the island in AD 43.
