abstract

The orientalist Antoine Galland (1646-1715) was a learned man who began a translation of the “Tales of a Thousand and One Nights” while he was based in Caen, in Normandy, and served as a secretary and librarian of the royal intendant Nicolas Foucault. His journeys to Constantinople and various parts of the Middle East, which took place between 1770 and 1788, had given him the opportunity to learn many Oriental languages and to carry out numismatic and epigraphic studies. During his stay in Normandy, he discovered Roman inscriptions from the civitas of the Viducasses, composed several commentaries on the most famous of them, the Marbre de Thorigny, and he wrote letters about them.
