Commentary


Ce type de statère, avec le cheval à gauche, appartient à la classe II. Cet exemplaire est complet des deux côtés ; la tête du cheval est souvent en bord de flan, mais elle est bien complète sur cet exemplaire. Le poids particulièrement léger ne laisse guère de doute sur la nature du métal ; ce statère est frappé sur un flan fourré.

Historical background


Bellovaci (Region Beauvais)

(Second - first century BC)

The Bellovaci, people of Gaul Belgium, occupied the present department of Oise. They had for neighbors the Parisii, the Veliocasses the Calètes the Ambiens and Suessiones. Caesar (BG. VII. 59) considers Bellovaci as the "most valiant of all Gaul" tribe. Before the Gallic War, the Bellovaci were allies Éduens. In 57 before J. C-. They were the artisans of the uprising of the Belgian people, furnished a contingent of sixty thousand warriors to the coalition, but were defeated and took refuge on their oppidum Bratuspantium. In 52 J. C-. They promised a contingent of ten thousand men to the relief army. They retracted, claiming only fight the Romans. Finally, the prayer of Commius, they gave two thousand men in the coalition. The following year, before 51 J. C-. They took the last time the head of a revolt of the Belgian people. Correos, bellovaque leader, led the rebellion to fight the Romans with Atrébates the Ambiens the Aulerci Eburovices the Calètes and Veliocasses. With Atrebatian Commios Correos met Roman armies on the borders of countries and Bellovaci Suessiones. Correos was killed which put a definitive end to hostilities. The main oppidum of Bellovaci was Bratuspantium it is difficult to identify with certainty the Roman city of Caesaromagus (Beauvais). Caesar. (BG. II, 4, 5, 10, 13, 14, V 46; VII, 59, 75, 90; VIII, 6, 7, 12, 14-17, 20-23, 38). Strabo (G. IV, 3-5). Pliny (HN. IV, 106). Ptolemy (G. II, 9). Kruta: 68, 351.
