Commentary


Ce type de potin est une variante de celui qui est passé en vente dans MONNAIES XXV, n° 651 et qui manque à tous les ouvrages sur le sujet. Sur notre exemplaire, il n’y a pas les deux globules au revers, le champ est libre.
On peut néanmoins le rapprocher de par son style des potins du type 7.7 pour le droit et le revers, ou encore 8.4 pour le revers. L'attribution traditionnelle aux Séquanes pourrait-être revue au profit des Eduens.

Historical background


GALLIA BELGICA - SEQUANI (Area of Besançon)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

The Séquanes were one of the most important peoples of eastern Gaul. They were the enemies of the Aedui, their neighbors. Their territory was very vast and extended between the Saône, the Rhône, the Jura and the Vosges. The Jura lakes separated them from the Helvetians. They had been very powerful in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC, but had lost their luster after the Germans had occupied part of their territory around 70 BC. Their neighbors were the Leuques, the Lingones, Aedui and Helvetians. Their principal oppidum was Vesontio (Besançon). Mentioned several times by Caesar, during the campaign of 52 BC, they provided a contingent of 12,000 men for the relief army. Caesar (BG. I, 1-3, 6, 8-10, 12, 19, 31-33, 35, 38, 40, 44, 48, 54; IV, 10; VI, 12; VII, 66, 67, 75, 90). Kruta: 16, 71, 111, 364.
