In AD. 342 - under Constans - the Franks were taken over the Rhine and settled in Toxandria (a region between the Meuse and the Scheldt rivers in the Netherlands and Belgium). This was a peaceful act done by negotiations and the Franks had to fight for the Romans.

"moonmoth" on February 01, 2010 and August 20, 2009 about hut coins from Arelate: "The western mints are the hardest to find, Arelate mint (Arles) in particular. ". "In that market, it's common to come across variations from the RIC tables from the eastern mints, but much less so from the western ones. In fact it's not that easy to find even the listed coins from Arelate - they are all graded R2 or R3 - but they do appear now and then."
