  1. C, it is more coherent with the other names. There are several ways to write the sound K from Gaulish, Europa Barbarorum choose to write it with "K", I prefer to use a Latin transcription with the letter "C" like we found it in Gallo-Roman inscriptions. Examples: Kingetos or Cingetos.
  2. Carnyx is a hapax but it should be karnus/carnus or karnuxs/carnuxs for the instrument. So I would say Carnucos (karnukos).
  3. Indeed, this is unique. Could be Greek, Etruscan or even Iberian influence. What's impressive as well is the multiple destruction seen in the soil layers.
  4. I didn't know it existed, and I didn't find any references, probably something in German, but I can't find it.* Heuneburg is a major place at the end of the Hallstatt period.

  9. I don't think there are issues using it as an inspiration since it is itself based on other works and drafts made by historians (see my previous posts).
  10. Siege tower, siege ram, war chariot, ladder, wooden screen, pickaxe.
