_________________________________________

The Druids were known to be experts in astronomy and astrology, and during this period in late Iron Age Britain they probably exerted considerable influence on the choice of imagery shown on coins, particularly images of a religious or occult character. Julius Caesar states: `The Druids officiate at the worship of the gods, regulate public and private sacrifices, and give rulings on all religious questions...The Druidic doctrine is believed to have been found existing in Britain and thence imported into Gaul; even today [53 BC] those who want to make a profound study of it generally go to Britain for the purpose...They also hold long discussions about the heavenly bodies and their movements, the size of the universe and of the earth, the physical constitution of the world, and the power and properties of the gods; and they instruct the young men in all these subjects' (BG VI, 13, 14).
