This coin offers the first evidence for the existence of a local king called "Anarevito". He is not known either from other coin finds or Roman historical accounts. Coin inscriptions often provide the only reference to the kings and rulers of pre-Roman Britain. Gold coin of Anarevito from Kent, England, circa 10 BCE to 20 CE. Purchased with support from the Art Fund. (The British Museum, London).
