History: Antedi – perhaps Antedios, became leader of the Iceni c.AD25. He took no active part in the opposition to the Roman invasion of AD43 and was subsequently made a client of Rome. He produced his first coins marked ANTED in commemoration of this honour. It is probable that Antedi was involved in the Icenian War of AD47 in which he must have lost his life by the end of it, as his name is not mentioned again after this time.
Date: Circa 25-38 AD
