The late Iron Age tribe living in between the rivers Trent and Nene in central England at the time of the Roman conquest in ad 43. Once known in the archaeological literature as the Coritani, their name has been corrected in the light of new epigraphic evidence. The tribe issued coinage from about 70 bc with the first name of a king, Vep, appearing about 10 bc. Some connection with the Roman Empire prior to the conquest is represented by imported materials at major sites such as Old Sleaford and Dragonby, Lincolnshire.
