The Iceni or Eceni was a Celtic tribe who inhabited an area of Britain (roughly to the modern-day county of Norfolk) between the 1st century BC and the 1st century AD.

The Iceni began producing coins circa 10 BC. Their coins were a distinctive adaptation of the Gallo-Belgic "face/horse" design, and in some early issues the horse was replaced with a boar. Some coins are inscribed ECENI, making them the only coin-producing group to use their tribal name on coins.

Tacitus records that the Iceni were not conquered in the Claudian invasion of AD 43, but they made a voluntary alliance with the Romans. After the death of Prasutagus, a pro-Roman Icenican king, the most famous revolt against the Romans was led by his widow Boudicca (Boadicea) in AD 61. After initial successes agains the Roman Ninth Legion, and the destruction of Colchester, London and Verulamium, Boudicca was finally defeated by the Roman army, led by Paulinus.
