Cette série dite des rois gaulois est très rare ; nous n’avons déjà proposé qu’un seul bronze KAIANTOLO au sanglier (MONNAIES 36, n° 1202) et deux bronzes BITOYIO BASILE au lion (MONNAIES 45, n° 914) et le bga_238706 de CELTIC 2.

Cet exemplaire est différent de tous les autres que nous avons eu (si ce n’est le bga_238706 de CELTIC II qui était incomplet) et ne correspond pas non plus aux légendes n° 72 et 73 du RIG, mais il est très proche (probablement des mêmes coins de droit et de revers) que le n° 3 de L. Villaronga ! On peut y lire clairement BITOYKOC / BACIAEY.
