Before the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 CE, rulers in the south-east struck coins with Latin inscriptions. Verica is described as REX (king) and COOMI F (son of Commius). Gradually, names usually in Celtic, appeared on coins beyond the south-east. Silver coin of Verica from Southern England, circa 10-40 CE. Found at Wanborough, Surrey. Treasure Trove. (The British Museum, London).
