Une sépulture remarquable d’époque romaine à Juliobona (Lillebonne, Seine-Maritime)

Abstract : Located in the Seine’s estuary, halfway between Le Havre and Rouen, Juliobona (Lillebonne, Seine-Maritime) was, starting from the 1st to the 4th century, the city capital of the Calètes. On October the 26th of 1864, an aristocratic grave was brought to light, in the east limit of the roman urban area. The cremated remains of the deceased had been left in the middle of riche grave goods, counting at least 48 pieces. After the discovery, these objects were studied by abbot Cochet, then given back to the owner of the ground in which they had been found. A century later, they were donated to the Lillebonne’s museum which exposes them, and entrusted a part of it to specialists for re-examination until the beginning of the 2000’s. The partially unpublished study presented here aims at filling the lack of global and recent approach on these finds, and furthermore proposes a new look on funeral practices of the elites in the Seine’s estuary during the Early Roman Empire.
