Médaillons romains en bronze du nord de l’Italie

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Roman bronze medallions from northern Italy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[Autom. eng. transl.] The summary inventory of Roman medallions drawn up by Jean-Marc Doyen in 2008 does not take into account the north of Italy, limiting itself to recalling that for this territory "the values observed [...] are mediocre", in the as they are limited to six copies. Doyen deduced this number from a more than concise reference made by Jean-Pierre Callu nearly forty years earlier. Neither Callu nor Doyen describes the “six” medallions. However, I believe that in reality Callu mischaracterized the rather confusing data provided by Jocelyn Toynbee in his monograph "Roman Medallions" (1944). The English scholar, based on the corpus of Roman medallions by Francesco Gnecchi (1912), had set the number of medallions found in northern Italy at three, but she simply indicated initially their origin around Padua, in specifying in a second reminder that two were discovered in Aquileia (1912 and 1930), a third in Rovigo. On the contrary, my research enabled me to identify four medallions found in the north-east (Oderzo, Aquileia, Abano Terme, Pontecchio Polesine) and four in the north-west of Italy (Aosta: two copies, Ivrea, Milan) .
