   The Celtic tribes of the third century B.C. had established their domain all along the Danube River from its sources down to the Danubian Delta on the Black Sea. Rather than forming a distinct and recognizable over-class, they tended to assimilate and blend with their conquered foes. Along the coast of the Black Sea, the Thasos tetradrachm was subject to Celtic copies. Most of these coins were copied in silver.
   This is a very good example of Celts imitating Macedonian coin types. It is good silver and the style is only slightly different than the coin it copies. Philip II was the father of Alexander the Great, and won an Olympic horse race as a young man explaining the reverse.
