Mais où est donc Luteva ? ou géopolitique d'une capitale improbable

Abstract : Although well attested in ancient texts, the town of Luteva has not been well documented archaeologically. However, recent field observations present an opportunity to reanalyze systematically the corpus of data in order to study the expansion of the urbanized area and the founding of the ancient settlement. The place and role of the town are then considered within both the territory of the civitas and the province of Gallia Narbonensis. Responding to strong geopolitical forces of colonial power, the bases of which are still obscure, the town, following its promotion to the status of colonia Latina, enjoyed a long period as a capital -- a distinction consecrated by the designation of a bishop\'s see as early as the Late Roman Period.
