The Battersea Shield was found in the area around Chelsea Bridge, London. Dated to 350 BC, it seems that an object this elaborate would belong to a member of the warrior elite or even a Celtic chief.

Gallo-Roman Bronze Statue of Mars Cobannus.The figure represents Cobannus-a Gaulish god identified with Mars.This is the first known inscription to Cobannus,but such identifications of obscure local Celtic divinities with Mars are common and are an important manifestation of the cult of Mars in the northern provinces.Composition is not based on standard type of Mars.Pose with grounded shield and spear is typical of Mars Ultor.This Cobannus seems to be Gallo-Roman creation.
