Commentary


Si le statère uniface des Ambiani est probablement la monnaie gauloise en or la plus courante, cette variété de revers (avec un globule encadré de deux petites esses entre les jambes et un annelet perlé et pointé devant le cheval) était nettement plus rare, presque exceptionnelle.
Cependant, depuis le printemps 2009, plusieurs exemplaires de ce type sont arrivés simultanément sur le marché... Pour cette classe V, S. Scheers n’avait que 17 exemplaires, la plupart répartis entre la BN, Amiens et Bruxelles.

Historical background

They participated in the coalition Belgian peoples 57 BC and furnished a contingent of ten thousand men. In 52 BC, it is a contingent of five thousand men they gave the army emergency release dedicated to Alesia. Caesar (Bg. II, 4, 15, VII, 75, VIII, 7). Strabo (G. IV, 5). Kruta: 68, 110, 366.
