Carnutes - Authority in Tribe from to
The Carnutes, a powerful Gaulish people in the heart of independent Gaul, dwelt in an extensive territory between the Sequana (Seine) and the Liger (Loire) rivers.

The territory of the Carnutes had the reputation among Roman observers of being the political and religious center of the Gaulish nations. The great annual druidic assembly mentioned by Caesar took place in one or the other of these towns.

In the 1st century BC, the Carnutes minted coins, usually struck with dies, but sometimes cast in an alloy of high tin content called potin. Their coinage turns up in hoards well outside their home territories, in some cases so widely distributed in the finds that the place of coinage is not secure.
