Historical background

Senons (region of Sens)

(Second - first century BC)

The Sénons, whose name means wise or old, controlled a vast area stretching from the south of Champagne and northern Burgundy. Their main oppidum was Agedincum (Sens), which still retained the name of the ancient civitas. They had several other oppida as Auxerre, Avallon or Thunder. Divona seems to have been the main sanctuary Sénons. Caesar had wintered six of his legions in 53 BC to Agedincum. Labienus, lieutenant and legate of Caesar, settled in the region between Sens and Alesia Gergovie to control the roads and protect Caesar's armies to attack Belgians or Germans. Caesar (Bg. II 2, V, 54, 56, VI, 2, 3, 44; VII, 4, 10, 11, 34, 56-59, 62, 75). Ptolemy (G. II, 8, 9).
