Commentary


Ce bronze est rare et n'est apparu que très récemment sur le marché avec les exemplaires MONNAIES XXIII, n° 808, XXIV, n° 947, XXVI, n° 629, XXVIII, n° 573 et celui-ci.
Les deux exemplaires de MONNAIES XXIII et XXIV n'avaient pas cette légende VOC aussi lisible au-dessus du cheval au revers.

Historical background


Bituriges CUBES / CENTRE WEST UNCERTAIN

(First century BC)

It is sometimes very difficult to decide on allocation due to the lack of information on the location of finds. However, too much excavated site can distort our judgment because the concentration of copies found at a given site do not necessarily correspond with the ancient reality. Numismatics as other science abhors a vacuum and tried to fill them by all means, even at the cost of the error. Uncertain currencies assigned to Bituriges Cubes are poorly understood and poorly published. But in the Midwest, near Poitiers, Limoges and Bourges, these coins are known to local scholars have classified differently long time. Only active collaboration can help us better understand these currencies and to return to its rightful owner..
