Item description for Gallo-Roman Bronzes and the Process of Romanization: Cobannus Hoard (Monumenta Graeca Et Romana) by John Pollini...
This work examines a cache of eight bronzes from east-central Gaul. The types of objects and accompanying inscriptions suggest that these bronzes originally came from a sanctuary of a god named Cobannus. The Cobannus hoard is valuable not only from an artistic point of view but also for the information it provides on many different aspects of the religious, social, and political life of Roman Gaul. The first part of the text describes, analyzes and interprets the individual objects, which are divided between the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Shelby White - Leon Levy Collection. The latter part of the work places the cache within a chronological, cultic and cultural context.
