Jean-Marc Doyen, a researcher at the University of Lille III, has reassigned this bronze to the Remi:
"This sometimes classic style bronze, made in an alloy containing an average of 12% zinc (orichalcum) is a semis and not a quadran as has long been assumed. It is cut to 1/108th of a pound (9 dozen) The distribution map shows a circulation fairly faithfully following the limits of the new province of Gallia Belgica, for which it serves as an additional coinage. Traditionally classified among the Gallic coins, this bronze is in fact a provincial issue made in Reims under imperial control by a Remian prince named Indutillus".
