Commentary


.
Les potins "à la tête diabolique" ont fait l'objet d'une étude de Florence Barthélémy dans Gallia 52 (1995), p.27-36. Elle complète l'article magistral du Dr. Colbert de Beaulieu paru dans la RBN de 1970. Aux deux classes existantes isolées par le Maître incontesté de la charactéroscopie, Florence Barthélémy a pu substituer un total de 8 classes et 10 variétés, en particulier, grâce au matériel recueilli sur le sanctuaire d'Allonnes. A. Blanchet fait remarquer que de nombreux potins de ce type furent trouvés au camp d’Amboise et que deux trouvailles faites en Indre-et-Loire en contenaient un grand nombre.

Their main oppidum seems to have been placed near Amboise site. Caesar (Bg. II, 35; VII, 4, 75, VIII, 46).
