Le monnayage gaulois "au cheval et au fleuron". La Tour 3571/72 et les origines pré-romaines de la cité de Béziers.

Abstract : This article deals with a Celtic independant coinage which appears to have had a limited distribution, in an area later included in the territory of the Colonia Baeterrensis created in BC 35/36. The distribution of these coins fits within the limits of the Beziers territory, except to the North-East where it also concerns the later civitas of Luteva. It does seem to have been struck and distributed by a Celtic tribe, member of the Ruteni, but whose name is up to now unknown. When the Southern part of the Ruteni territoty was put under Roman authority (c. 80/70 BC), the area may have been ruled by Narbonne. But later in 35/36, the Beziers territory was made from different earlier territories, including Agde, the former Beziers kingdom and Southern Ruteni sub-tribes, including the one studied here.
