It is defined as “conceals, hides” in Latin. Why do we insist to use an incorrect term in numismatics? I have looked on several other coin sites, checked translators, but Celator has only been defined as conceals, hides. I have been in manufacturing for over 40 years. I have had machine tool dies as well as hand dies made. Some dies were under the size of a coin, some were quite large, having to use an over 2,500-ton press. Everyone who made the dies (very skilled hand process), were all called DIE-CUTTERS. (It did not matter what country, the person was called a die-cutter.) So, please help me... what is a Celator? What is the basis this term is used in numismatics?
