Historical background


Tolosates (region of Vieille-Toulouse)

(Second - first century BC)

The Tolosates, component Volques Tectosages, occupied the area of ​​Tolosa (Toulouse Old). They were submitted after 105 BC by Quintus Servilius Caepio. This episode is the origin of the myth of gold of Toulouse "aurum Tolosanum". Tolosa, their capital was included in the province of Narbonne, bordering independent Gaul before the Gallic Wars. During the Gallic Wars, the Tolosates seem to have remained faithful to the Roman alliance. Sources: Caesar (Bg. I, 10, III, 20; VII, 7), Strabo (G. IV, 14).
