Le sanctuaire de Mars Mullo chez les Aulerques Cénomans (Allonnes, Sarthe) Ve s. av. J.-C. - IVe s. apr. J.-C. : état des recherches actuelles

Abstract : Since the excavations by P. Térouanne the sanctuary at Allonnes, close to Le Mans in the Sarthe valley, has been known for its Latenian material, its dedications to Mars Mullo, inscriptions mentioning the Cenomani Aulerci, and its sculptures. Planned excavations initiated in 1994 have resumed the study of the Celtic remains (with material going back to the 5th century BC), of the temple from the High Empire, and of the sanctuary built in the 2nd century AD and still frequented in the 4th. The exceptional discovery of the builder's yard of the temple with a round cella on a podium allows to date the different construction stages of this monumental cult complex. The abandoned blocks in the stonecutters' workshop and the metal workshop show in greater detail the work and organization of labourers and craftsmen. This sanctuary in Gallia Lugdunensis, dedicated to a regional god in association with the imperial cult, adopted the same characteristics as the monuments in the Southwest of Gauls. Study of the material (Celtic weapons, inscriptions, coins, fauna, sculpture) demonstrate the wealth of this monument, which was erected near the capital of the civitas of the Aulerci Cenomani to become one of their main cult places.
