The ancient town of Celsa is the current town of Velilla de Ebro in Aragon, northern eastern Spain. During the Republican period just prior to the striking on this coin, the city name of KELSE was found on the reverse dies. During the Triumviral period the city name was changed to Lepida, undoubtedly a reference to Lepidus. Once Augustus was in power the coinage returned to the original city name of CELSA. This continued throughout the reign of Augustus and Tiberius.
