Historical background


(1st century BC)

The "so-called" degenerate crescent or crescent and triskele gossip are imitations, perhaps copied from the passing bull gossip (LT. 5284), formerly attributed to the Mandubians, is today reclassified as "central de Gaul". This gossip is itself copied from the bronzes of Marseilles with the bull. The great diversity that can exist between different gossip does not facilitate a recurring attribution. A solution could come to us from across the Channel once again. One of the copies 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.
