Ce très rare triens correspond à la monnaie 1013 du Belfort, avec FAVS (les lettres A et V ligaturées) et la légende X SCI IVXLIANI au revers. La légende du revers semble variée quelque peu sur notre exemplaire, dans le X et avec les lettre ANI de la fin hors flan. Selon le Belfort, le style de ce triens est absolument contemporain de Sigebert (535-575), du Gévaudan.

Historical background


(Seventh - eighth centuries)

All that is known for high Brioude times is to report to the emergence of the cult of St. Julien. From the fourth century, the martyrdom of St. Julien, protector of Auvergne, and the pilgrimage to his tomb that followed, gave the city a dimension of religious and political regional capital. The surprising importance levels Merovingian highlighted during recent excavations planned near the Basilica certify incessant activity at these times in these places. The number, variety and distribution of monetary emission beaten Brioude triens and money funds, which are shelled findings of the current Spain to the British Isles are still concrete evidence of radiation instead.
