Ce type de potin est beaucoup plus rare que les traditionnels potins au sanglier (DT. 2477-2480) ; il est caractéristique avec l'arcade sourcilière qui se confond avec le contour de l'arrière du crane. Le revers a un sanglier "réaliste" du même type que les DT. 2479-2480. Ce type manque à la publication du Musée d'Evreux. La seule mention semble être l'ouvrage de H. Patat sur les potins, n° 17.10.

Historical background

Aulerci Eburovices (Region of Evreux)

(Second - first century BC)

The Aulerci were subdivided into three tribes: Aulerci Diablintes, Aulerci Cenomani and Aulerci Eburovices. The territory of Aulerci Eburovices corresponds to the current department of Eure. They are mentioned several times in Caesar's Commentaries. According to him, they would have killed their Senate favorable to the Romans in 56 AD and have joined the rebels and Unelles Lexovii. In 52 BC, they provided a contingent of three thousand men to the army of relief. Caesar (Bg.
