Commentary


Le centrage de ce denier permet de deviner aisément la légende CA BIL ON NO. Il est rare de pouvoir lire également le nom du monétaire. Le denier B. 1254 n’est pas illustré, mais le n° 135 planche est aussi pour ce monétaire..

Historical background


Chalon - sur - Saone (CABILONNUM)

(Seventh century)

The Burgundian kingdom was annexed to the Frankish kingdom after the victory of Autun in 534. Burgundy has an independent monarch 613 until the death of Thierry II. After the assassination of Sigebert II 613 by Clotaire II, Burgundy is aggregated kingdom of Neustria. St. Leger, Bishop of Autun (616-678) was Mayor of the Palace. The Royal Government is provided by the palace which is more an institution than a place. There are three capitals: Paris (Neustria), Metz (Austrasia) and Chalon-sur-Saône (Burgundy). There is always a palace that continues to operate after Clotaire II has restored the unit. The palace is a symbol of the independence of the kingdom. Clotaire II government from Paris but there is still a palace in Metz and Chalon. The gold coinage of Chalon-sur-Saône was certainly the most abundant of the Merovingian.
