Many thanks  ;D

The weight is rather important but I guess it is not available.

I am intrigued by the Redones tribe from Gaul Stater published by our member Cavaros here. I think the piece above is modern, though. The image below is embedded. It will disappear if the original is moved or renamed. I am now wondering if CONOVES (?) could refer to the Cornovii tribe of the Midlands...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Conovios leads to the tribe of the Santones near Saintes. The animal should be a wolf.

But I have also considerable doubts about this "coin" ...
