Roman Provincial Coins from Gaul
Celtic, Senones, Gaul (Area of Sens, France), c. 100 - 27 B.C.

|Celtic| |&| |Tribal|, |Celtic,| |Senones,| |Gaul| |(Area| |of| |Sens,| |France),| |c.| |100| |-| |27| |B.C.||AE| |15|NEW
In about 400 B.C. the Senones crossed the Alps and, having driven out the Umbrians, settled on the east coast of Italy from Forl to Ancona (ager Gallicus), and founded Sena Gallica (Senigallia) their capital. In 391 B.C., they invaded Etruria and besieged Clusium. The Clusines appealed to Rome, which led to war. In 390 B.C. (or 387 B.C.), the Senones routed the Roman army at Allia and then sacked Rome. For more than 100 years the Senones were engaged in hostilities with Rome. They were finally subdued in 283 B.C. by P. Cornelius Dolabella and driven from Italy. In Gaul, from 53 to 51 B.C., the Senones engaged in hostilities with Julius Caesar, brought about by their expulsion of Cavarinus, whom he had appointed their king. In 51 B.C., a Senonian named Rapeseed threatened the Provincia, but was captured and starved himself to death. Their chief towns were Agedincum (later Senones, whence Sens), Metiosedum (Melun?), and Vellaunodunum (site uncertain).
CE90236. Bronze AE 15, Delestre-Tache 2631; CCCBM III 156 - 159; De la Tour 7565; Scheers Lyon 735 - 737, F, green patina, tight flan, rev. flatly struck and off center, obv. edge beveled, weight 3.259 g, maximum diameter 15.4 mm, die axis 180o, c. 52 B.C.; obverse GIAMILOS, head to right, hair divided into large curls, pulled back; reverse bird standing left, wings closed, SIINV above, two pellets within annulets behind; $100.00 SALE PRICE $90.00


Gallic Tribes, Volcae-Arecomici, Nimes Area, Gaul, c. 120 - 49 B.C., Imitating Massalia

|Gaul|, |Gallic| |Tribes,| |Volcae-Arecomici,| |Nimes| |Area,| |Gaul,| |c.| |120| |-| |49| |B.C.,| |Imitating| |Massalia||obol|
Lighter cruder specimens of this head of Apollo / wheel type, have traditionally been identified as very late obols struck at Massalia. More recent research indicates finds are overwhelmingly centered in an area west of Massalia. They were almost certainly struck by the Volcae Arecomici, a Gallic tribe dwelling between the Rhne and the Hrault rivers, around present-day Nmes.
GS99626. Silver obol, cf. Maurel 493, VF, dark toning, flow lines, flan much smaller than the dies, weight 0.540 g, maximum diameter 9.5 mm, die axis 0o, Volcae-Arecomici mint, c. 120 - 49 B.C.; obverse crude bare head of Apollo left (nose, mouth and chin off flan); reverse four-spoke wheel, between spokes M-A; ex CNG, ex Richard L. Horst Collection; $90.00 SALE PRICE $81.00


Augustus and Agrippa, c. 10 - 14 A.D., Colonia Augusta Nemausus, Gallia Narbonensis

|Gaul|, |Augustus| |and| |Agrippa,| |c.| |10| |-| |14| |A.D.,| |Colonia| |Augusta| |Nemausus,| |Gallia| |Narbonensis||dupondius|
The reverse commemorates the conquest of Egypt in 30 B.C. This theme was probably used at Nemausus because the colony was settled by Egyptian Greeks and veterans from Anthony's army that had surrendered to Octavian at Actium. This coin is from a final revival of the type with the addition of P P, for Pater Patri, Father of the Country, on the obverse. Augustus was honored with this title in 2 B.C.
RP97570. Bronze dupondius, RIC I 161 (S), RPC Online I 525, SNG Cop 700, SNG Tb 160, SRCV I 1731, VF, well centered on a tight flan, excellent portraits, pitting and porosity, weight 12.380 g, maximum diameter 26.8 mm, die axis 270o, Colonia Augusta Nemausus (Nimes, France) mint, c. 10 - 14 A.D.; obverse back to back heads of Agrippa and Augustus, Agrippa (on left) facing left wearing a rostral crown, Augustus laureate head right, IMP above, P - P flanking below chins, DIVI F below; reverse crocodile right chained to a palm, wreath with long ties over COL - NEM (NE ligate) across field above crocodile divided by palm, two palm fronds below crocodile; scarce; SOLD


Gallic Celts, Coriosolites, c. 100 - 50 B.C.

|Celtic| |&| |Tribal|, |Gallic| |Celts,| |Coriosolites,| |c.| |100| |-| |50| |B.C.||stater|
The Coriosolites (or Curiosolites or Curiosolitae) were a Celtic people in the region now called Brittany, mentioned by Julius Caesar several times. He describes the position of the Coriosolites on the ocean among the Armoric states, near the Veneti, Unelli, Osismi, and other tribes. No Coriosolites cities or roads are mentioned by the Romans. The name seems to be preserved in Corseul, a village between Dinan and Lamballe, where there are the remains of an old Roman town. We may conclude that, after the fashion of Gallic names, Corseul was the capital of the Coriosolites.Gaul
CE89570. Billon stater, Hooker class IV, group F, 25; Delestre-Tache II 2334, Depeyrot NC VIII 178, gVF, toned, porosity and flan splits, weight 6.442 g, maximum diameter 24.2 mm, die axis 270o, Northwest Gaul mint, c. 100 - 50 B.C.; obverse Celticized head right, hair in large spiral curls, S-like ear; before, small face-like ornament right above scroll-ornament; reverse Celticized rider on horseback right, spiral ornament before, rayed circular ornament below; ex Calgary Coin Gallery; SOLD
