GALLIA BELGICA - LINGONES (Area of Langres)
(2nd - 1st century BC)
The territory of the Lingons was very vast, straddling the current department of Haute-Marne and part of the Côte d'Or, Yonne and Aube. Their capital was located in Langres. They were surrounded by the Sequani, the Mandubians, the Leuci, the Remes, the Suessions, the Senones and the Aedui. It was one of the largest civitas in Gaul. Langres, which has kept their name, seems to have been one of their oppida. Allies of the Romans, they did not take part in the War. The Helvetians, during their retreat after the defeat of Bibracte, crossed the Lingon territory. And in 52 BC, they did not send emissaries, did not join the revolt and did not participate in the relief army sent to Vercingetorix. On the other hand, in 51 before J. - C., they provided a contingent of cavalry to the Romans in order to fight the Bellovaques and the Belgians. They therefore remained faithful to the Roman alliance. They are quoted several times in Caesar's Commentaries. Caesar (BG. I, 26, 40; IV, 10; VI, 44; VII, 9, 63, 66; VIII, 11). Kruta: 21,111, 184, 187, 201, 251.
