Historical background

Transpadane - Celtic-LIGURES

(III - II century BC)

Celto-Ligurians currencies in Lepontic alphabet, settled in the sixth or fifth century BC in Transpadane, which later became the Cisalpine Gaul. At the end of the fourth century BC, they are in contact with Rome. The Gauls crush the Romans on the Allia 18 July 387 BC Brennus and takes Rome (Vae Victis!) After a long siege, despite the resistance of the fortress of the Capitol (Juno geese spent Monere ( Moneta) warned the Romans of danger). The war resumed a century later between 285 and 282 BC Rome remains mistress of Central Italy. After the victory of Clastidium in 222 BC, the Romans seized Mediolanum (Milan). They submit the Boii and Insubres after taking Bologna and impose colonies of Roman citizens in Cremona, Piacenza and Modena. The Romans began construction of the Via Flaminia. uses cookies to guarantee a better user experience and to carry out statistics of visits.
