Historical background


MIDDLE LOIRE

(1st century BC)

The "so-called" degenerate crescent or crescent and triskele potin are imitations, perhaps copied from the passing bull potin (LT. 5284), formerly attributed to the Mandubians, is today reclassified as "central de Gaul". This potin is itself copied from the bronzes of Marseilles with the bull. The great diversity that can exist between different potin does not facilitate a recurring attribution. A solution could come to us from across the Channel once again. One of the examples in the Oxford museum from the collection of D. Allen is supposed to come from the camp of Amboise (Indre-et-Loire), in the Turons country. This type is reputed to come from the Chartres treasure (Blanchet, ABT. fig. 116). The maximalist "Middle Loire" attribution is valid, but not definitive.
