Historical background

PAGUS CATUSLUGI - Sanctuary WOOD FATHER (Seine-Maritime)

(First century BC)

Already in 1977, S. Scheers evoked the idea of ​​a mint Pagus for VIIRICIVS kind (op. cit.p.129-130) which recalls the findings of the sanctuary of Bois l'Abbé Eu (Seine-Maritime) (LPD. p.32-45) where 161 pieces of 4 classes were discovered and analyzed. These coins were found in large quantities without a doubt cash with a regional focus (LPD. 1984, p. 65-92). A plate found on site in 1965, near the theater evokes a Catuslugi pagus already reported by Pliny (HN. IV, 31).
