Scientists have shown ancient coins found last year near the village Of Blythburgh in Suffolk, great Britain. The artifacts are 2 thousand years old, and there were 19 coins in the treasure. Most of the copies are gold staters that were made by order of Adomar (Addedomaros), who was the leader of one of the Celtic tribes that lived in what is now Essex.

Staters were minted in 45-25 BC. On the obverse of some copies, you can see images in the form of flowers. One of the coins shows a horse, the reverse side contains two letters "S". While historians can not say what this reduction means.

This is not the first time such coins have been found in the UK. The fact that staters were common in Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and other regions indicates an active interaction between neighbors.
