Commentary


Ce rare bronze appartient, de par son revers, à la série de Saint-André-sur-Cailly. L’exemplaire du Nouvel Atlas est le BN. 7350, repris du Traité de S. Scheers qui ne recensait que sept exemplaire de ce rare bronze (quatre à la BN, un à Rouen et un au MAN).
Toutes ces monnaies ne seraient issues que d’un seul coin de droit D3 et d’un seul coin de revers R3.

Historical background


VELIOCASSES (Area of Norman Vexin)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

The Véliocasses, people of Belgian Gaul, lived in the Norman Vexin located in the current department of Seine-Maritime. Their neighbors were the Lexovians and the Aulerci Éburovices, with the Seine as their border, and on the other side the Parisii, the Calètes and the Bellovaques. They participated in the Belgian coalition of 57 BC, led by the Bellovaques and provided a contingent of ten thousand men. But in 52 BC, for the relief army to release Vercingetorix besieged in Alesia, they only gave three thousand men. The following year, in 51 BC, they took part for the last time in the coalition of the Belgians in revolt under the leadership of the Bellovaques. Their main oppidum was Rouen (Rotomagus). Caesar (BG. II, 4; VII, 75; VIII, 7); Pliny (HN. IV). Ptolemy (G. II, 8). Kruta: 366.
