Coups de foudre gallo-romains ?

Abstract : The article questions a group of Roman brooches apparently reproducing the form of a thunder, and bearing love inscriptions But the expression "coup de foudre" seems to have been unknown in Antiquity, and nor does any of these inscriptions mention an immediate and irrepressible love. As such brooches belong to a group of inscribed objects which is now well known, we should probably withdraw the idea that craftsmen aimed to associate love with thunder.
