Caesaromagus

(177 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: Theatre Civitas, main centre of the  Bellovaci on a loop of the river Thérain, modern Beauvais (Oise). There is no archaeological evidence of a preceding Celtic settlement in this location ( Bratuspantium), nor for the assumption -- derived from the name C. -- that it was founded by either Caesar or Augustus. The beginnings of Gallo-Roman urbanism probably lay in the early 1st cent. AD, more significant traces of building structures point to the …

Eburones

(234 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] People in Gallia Belgica, the most important one amongst the Germani Cisrhenani (Caes. B Gall. 2,4); they were clients of the Treveri in the south; in between the two were the lands of the Germanic  Condrusi and Segni (Caes. B Gall. 4,6; 6,32). In the north, the E. shared a border with the coastal people of the Menapii (Caes. B Gall. 6,5). The core of their areas of settlement between Maas and Rhine (Caes. B Gall. 5,24) comprised the northern Ardennes, the Eiffel and the plains ex…

Belginum

(110 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: Celts Vicus near Wederath (Bernkastel-Wittlich district) on the Roman road Augusta Treverorum--Mogontiacum (Tab. Peut.; CIL XIII 7555a). The burial ground belonging to it shows continuous use from the 4th cent. BC to the 4th cent. AD. The beginnings of the vicus, however, did not occur until the 1st cent. AD. A preliminary settlement of Latène or early Roman times could not yet be documented. After the turmoil of AD 275/6, B. remained inhabited until the 4th cent. due to its location and its significance for traffic. Schön, Fran…

Morini

(575 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] (Celtic for ‘sea people’). A people in Gallia Belgica in the modern Pas de Calais, whose territory in the north and west stretched to the sea. Their northeastern border with the neighbouring Menapii followed the Aa upstream to east of Saint Omer, southwards to meet the Leie, and a little upstream along this, where at Merville it met the one-time territory of the Atrebates [1]. From here it probably reached the old boundary of the bishopric of Arras in a southern direction to the s…

Moesi, Moesia

Author(s): Burian, Jan (Prague) | Schön, Franz (Regensburg) | Wittke, Anne-Maria (Tübingen)
[German version] A. Geography The members of a group of tribes of Thracian origin who lived in the northeastern part of the Balkan peninsula were referred to, in Greek, as Moisoí (Μοισοί), Mysoí (Μυσοί), and in Latin as M. or Moesae. Other tribes settled there as well, such as the Dardani, Triballi, Timachi and Skythae, who were later counted among the Moesicae gentes as inhabitants of the province of Moesia (Plin. HN 3,149; 4,3). After the territory of the Getae was incorporated into the province of Moesia inferior, its inhabitants as well were referred t…

Treveri

(1,654 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] I. Geography A tribe living in Gallia Belgica between the Meuse in the west and the Middle Rhine in the east, their territory bordered in the north by the Ardennes, the Luxembourg Eisling and the Middle Eifel; the southern boundary ran along the southern edge of Belgian Lorraine and Luxembourg, through the north of the Saarland and along the Nahe. Between the mountainous, densely wooded and rather settlement-hostile border areas in both north and south (Hunsrück) lay fertile hilly terrain, river valleys and bays with ideal conditions for settlement. Schön, Franz (Rege…

Sabis

(253 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] [1] River in northern Gaul River in northern Gaul (Caes. B Gall. 2,16,1; 2,18), where in 57 BC Caesar fought against the Nervii and their allies, the Atrebates [1] and Viromandui ( ibid. 2,16-27), on his way from Samarobriva. The river's identification and location are contested. Older scholarship identified the S. with the Sambra [1] (modern Sambre), suggesting that the battle took place 6 km outside of Maubeuge near Hautmont-Boussières [1; 2]. Recently these claims have been countered by topological, historica…

Belgica

(390 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] Originally, B. is the settlement area of the  Belgae (Caes. B Gall. 2,4) as designated by Caesar in his division of Gallia into three parts (Caes. B Gall. 1,1). It was governed uniformly until Augustus established the imperial province of B. in 16/13 BC in the course of reorganizing the Tres Galliae. Based on records by Plin. HN 4,105 and Ptol. 2,9 about the tribes of B., the boundaries of the province can be approximately determined, but they differ strongly from Caesar's division. The boundary in the north was formed by the Nort…

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] Present-day Arlon-Arel (Belgium, province of Luxembourg), vicus of the civitas of the Treveri, probably the main town of one of their pagi . It was built by the sources of the Semois at the crossing point of the important major roads from Durocortorum to Augusta [6] Treverorum (Itin. Anton. 366,2; [1]) and from Divodurum to Aduatuca. In view of the threat from barbarians the settlement was transferred to the northern hill town (present-day St. Donat) at the end of the 3rd/beginning o…

Bagacum

(319 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: | Limes Modern Bavai, capital ( civitas) of the  Nervii, in the French Département Nord not far off the Belgian border. The Celtic place name as well as some scanty finds from the Latène period hint at the possibility that a modest pre-Roman settlement existed. However, B. is a Roman foundation, and has to be seen in the context of Agrippa's road building programme for the reorganization of Gaul (20/19 BC). At this junction of the links with Durocort…

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] People in Gallia Belgica between Matrona and Mosella, north-west of the Sequani, south-west of the Mediomatrici; their territory extended in the east and the south-east up to the Vosges (Caes. B Gall. 2,14; Tac. Hist. 1,64; Ptol. 2,9,13; Plin. HN 4,106; Luc. 1,242); civitas/capital was Tullum. A spring and healing cult has been attested with the L. - either in the form of Apollo worship (Graux, Malaincourt) or the Celtic Apollo Grannus (Tullum, Nasium, Grand) [1] or a nameless deity (Laneuveville) [2]. According to Claudi…

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[English version] Vorgebirge und Hafen der Morini in Gallia Belgica, Ausgangsbasis für Caesars Flotte für die britannischen Expeditionen (Caes. Gall. 4,21-23; 5,2). Caesar erwähnt I. nur anläßlich der zweiten Expedition 54 v.Chr., τὸ Ἴτιον bei Strab. 4,5,2 ist auf das Unternehmen vom Vorjahr zu beziehen. Das Vorgebirge (Ἴτιον ἄκρον, Ptol. 2,9,1) ist eher bei Cap Gris-Nez als bei Cap d'Albrech zu lokalisieren. Von vielen Theorien zur Lage des Hafens (etwa in Flandern und der Calaisis) sind nur zwei…

[English version] A. Geographie Als griech. Moisoí (Μοισοί), Mysoí (Μυσοί), lat. M. oder Moesae wurden die Angehörigen eines Stammesverbands thrakischer Herkunft bezeichnet, die im NO der Balkanhalbinsel lebten. Neben ihnen siedelten hier auch andere Stämme, z.B.

Moesia Inferior wurde auch dessen Bevölkerung als M. bezeichnet (Cass. Dio 51,22,6f.). Di…

[English version] Hauptort der Atrebates, h. Arras (Dép. Pas de Calais), auf einer Höhe am Zusammenfluß von Scarpe und Crinchon; Sümpfe im Süden und Osten und Steilabfall nach Norden gaben dem Ort natürlichen Schutz. N. ist wohl identisch mit Nemetocenna, dem Lager des Antonius [I 9], das Caesar 51/0 v.Chr. als Winterquartier diente (Caes. Gall. 8,46,6; 52,1 [Hirtius]). Eine präurbane latènezeitliche Siedlung ist nachgewiesen, ein atrebatisches oppidum (42 ha) befand sich 5 km entfernt bei Etrun am Zusammenfluß von Scarpe und Gy. N. war eine augusteische Neug…

Mediomatrici

(402 words)

Author(s): Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[English version] Volk in der Gallia Belgica; Hauptort ihrer civitas war Divodurum (h. Metz). Ihr Herrschaftsgebiet im h. Lothringen umfaßte die oberen Stromgebiete von Maas, Mosel und Saar (Strab. 4,3,4; Ptol. 2,9,7) und reichte urspr. im Osten bis an den Rhein (Caes. Gall. 4,10,3; Strab. l.c.). Im Gallischen Krieg (Caesar) traten sie kaum in Erscheinung, unterstützten 52 v.Chr. den in Alesia belagerten Vercingetorix mit 5000 Mann (Caes. Gall. 7,75,3); ihre linksrheinischen Gebiete im Unterelsaß zw. Vog…

Gesoriacum

[English version] Dieser Ort ist auf folgenden Karten verzeichnet: Bataveraufstand | Gallia | Handel | Straßen Hafenstadt der Morini in der Gallia Belgica, h. Boulogne-sur-mer, auch als Bononia bezeugt. Beide gleichzeitig benutzten Bezeichnungen (Flor. epit. 2,30) beziehen sich eigentlich nur auf Teilgebiete. Nach traditioneller Ansicht ist G. die Unter- und Bononia die Oberstadt (anders [1. 63]). Tiberius bezeichnete bei seinem Aufenthalt 4 n.Chr. den Ort als Bononia (ILS 9463); in der Folgezeit ist bis zum An…
