The coins of ancient Gaul (Gallia) consist of three principal classes: (i) Greek, chiefly of the town of Massalia; and (ii) native Gaulish, imitated originally from Greek (or Roman) coins; and (iii) Roman colonial of Lugdunum, Nemausus, Vienna , and Cabellio in the valley of the Rhone. Was a colony of Phocaea founded about B. Its earliest coins are small uninscribed divisions of the Phocaic drachm with incuse reverses and of various types Tré d'Auriol, Rev.348, and Mélanges de Num. Further references in Blanchet, p. 545; illustrations in Babelon, Traité , II.
Notwithstanding their archaic appearance it does not seem that these little pieces are, with few exceptions, much earlier than the middle of the fifth century B. It is not improbable that there were several issues of such coins, extending perhaps over a period of seventy or eighty years; and it is not certain whether all of these coins (representing some twenty-five types) belong to Massalia, or should not rather be distributed among various cities on the same coast.It may be that some of the were not actually struck in Gaul, but brought from Asia Minor.
