The circulation of money in the 5th and 6th centuries remained poorly understood for several decades, mainly as regards bronze coins. Several discoveries of recent decades, as well as the data brought in by the most recent excavations, have now made possible some significant advances for the region of southern Gaul. They have also enabled the resumption of the study of several groups of ancient discoveries, in the light of the new finds.
We wish to present here the first synthesis of these new data and elements of reflection on the characterization of these late bronze coins.
