Historical background

NERONKEN - Nedenes (oppidum Montlaurès)

(Second - first century BC)

This small nation is not mentioned by Ptolemy or Strabo nor by Caesar. It should belong to all of broader Longostalètes in the region between Narbonne and Beziers. These are the recent excavations carried out over the last thirty years, that helped make the oppida Montlaurès Ensérune and the importance they had gained from the creation of the province of Narbonne, in 118 BC - C., and the end of the Gallic Wars.
