Le dépôt de coins monétaires gaulois de Comiac (Lot) : DT 3416 et 3425

Abstract : With four coin matrices (1 A/ and 3 R/) associated with specialized tools, the hoard from Comiac (hoard) is presently the most important discovery concerning the production of Celtic coins in Gaul. It contains 3 drachma matrices and 1 for an hemidrachma, all from the Lemovici, and was hidden on a oppidum on the territory of the Cadurci, just outside the Lemovici territory. It can therefore be considered a major find documenting the practice of travelling craftsmen, minting coins on demand, and perhaps also able to engrave the coin matrices according to the prescriptions of each tribe.
