Celtic mercenaries in the military services of the medditerranean states and their homecoming to the countries of the Middle Europe
Šedo, Ondrej ; Knápek, R.
Activities of the Celtic mercenaries in the Mediterranean environment are surprisingly often mentioned by the ancient writers. They used to appear in services for authorities there, in the Near East, “Magna Graecia” and other parts of southern Europe and also in Egypt or Carthage. They completed armies of the states fighting each other or against the Roman republic when they joined the fighting for domination in this area, and the last troops were still in service during the last decades before the change of the era. The findings discovered during the archaeological research, mainly coins that had been produced in the Mediterranean area and which appear in the Middle Europe (Roseldorf, Němčice nad Hanou, Nowa Cerekwia) led to a hypothesis that some of the mercenaries returned to these places after finishing their service. The article comes up with arguments enabling a support for such hypotheses.
