Notes:     Sale: Triton IX, Lot: 661 Corieltauvian coins are known with the names Volisios Dumnocoveros, Volisios Dumnovellaunos, and Volisios Cartivel(aunos). Volisios may be a surname for three different rulers, or Volisios may be a paramount chief, with three sub-rulers acknowledging him as overlord. The Volisios coinage appears to have been struck up to the time of the Claudian invasion of Britain, when the Corieltauvi moved northward into the territory of the Parisii, where staters of this type have been found.
