Emissions et circulation monétaires chez les Rutènes avant Auguste.

Abstract : In the later centuries of their independance, the Ruteni struck a number of original coins, mostly of silver, then of bronze. These mints mad advantage of silver ores in various areas of their vast territory, no doubt part of their wealth in the 2nd and 1st c. BC. A careful inventory of discoveries shows how the Ruteni coinage diffused among their neighbours, mostly to the South and to the West. But the abundance of Ruteni coins near Agde and Beziers reminds us of the probable assimilation of part of their territory by the Romans, c. 75 BC. The latest emissions of bronze, bearing the names of Attalus and Tatinos, no doubt reflect the relations established with the Romans after this event. Attalus and Tatinos may even have been obsides, brought up in Rome and returned to their homeland 10 or 20 years later, as local leaders. Attalus may even have been adopted by L. Munatius Plancus, the founder of Lugdunum and Augusta Raurica.
