Historical background


(First century BC)

Under the name Paris region met all mints, usually bronze or pewter, which can not be attributed to Parisii, although sometimes some of their copies were found in Paris in the Seine. These "peripheral" mints are often found locally or located in geographic areas of the current Parisian Region. Must be recalled that the Parisii were emancipated from the late senone guardianship, even if this picture is sometimes questioned today? These mints pagi should have a restricted circulation and are often still rare. Again, only an accurate map of the distribution of the findings will better understand and better situate these coinages that are poorly understood because the various stakeholders do not want to bother them know.
