Historical background


CORIOSOLITÆ (Area of Corseul, Cotes d'Armor)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

The Coriosolites were an Armorican people, settled in the current department of Côtes-d'Armor. They had for neighbors the Osismes, the Vénètes, the Namnètes and the Redons. They were a seafaring people whose main port seems to have been Alet. Their name is still preserved today in that of Corseul. They played an important role in trade with insular Britain, took part in the campaign of 57 BC and were subjugated by Crassus. The following year, they again participated in the revolt of the Armoricans under the leadership of the Veneti with the Unelles and the Lexoviens, all crushed by Caesar. In 52 BC, the Coriosolites participated in the contingent of twenty thousand men that the Armoricans sent to free Vercingetorix, besieged in Alesia. Caesar (BG. II, 34; III, 7, 11; VII, 75). Pliny (HN IV, 107) Kruta: 108, 355, 366.
