Description

Reproduction of a Celtiberian tessera made in lost-wax cast bronze. Finished with an antique patina.

Measurements: Width: 8 cm. Height: 5 cm. Depth: 1.5 cm.

Reproduction of a Celtiberian tessera with two intertwined hands and an inscription. Original exhibited in the Cabinet of Medals, National Library of Paris (France).

This piece is inspired by the Celtiberian tessera found at Contrebia Belaisca, in Botorrita (Saragossa), dated to the 1st century BC.  A tessera is a piece with inscriptions of contracts or agreements between private individuals, as in this case. The obverse depicts four fingers of one hand and the thumb of the linked hand. On the reverse is a short text that refers to another of the parties to the pact and may refer to a person, in this case Lubos of the Alisokos, son of Aualos of Contrebia Belaisca.
