Head of Apollo right with long hair tied with fillet.
Lion striding right. Legend above.
Rooster standing right; star behind.
Sambon, following Garrucci, believed the piece to be struck by un unknown tribe in the Cisalpine Gaul region. Grose, though, thought the style and full legend of the McClean specimen suggested an attribution to Cales in Campania. While the reverse type is similar to that appearing on Cales bronze of the 3rd century, the obverse and the unusual characteristics of the ethnic clearly suggest this is an imitative issue.
