Mouths, with the sinople palm tree on an of the same terrace, with the crocodile connects and circumvents azure, the gold chain in band, a laurel wreath of the second email attachee has dextral palm tree, with the abbreviations: Coll has dextral, Nem. has sinistral, of gold.

These weapons are drawn from old medal from colony Roman from Nimes (Colonia Nemausensis Augusta), they occupied the reverse, and whose face represented the busts of Auguste and of Clutched crowns, one of bay-trees, the other of a naval crown or eperonnee, with the inscription Imp. P.P. Divi: F. This medal points out the share which the emperor and his son-in-law with the establishment of the colony had, founded after the battle of Actium by veterans of the army of Egypt. The old seal of the consulate of Nimes represented four characters upright, the four consuls undoubtedly, with the legend: Sigillum consulum civitatis Nemaus. Fran?ois I, in 1516, on the request of the inhabitants, granted to them for municipal weapons: a gold bull in field of azure. The chance having made discover, little time after, the medal which we described, they adopterent their current weapons, which were to them confirmees by letters patent of June 1, 1535.

Nimes existed already before the arrival of the Romans in the Narbonnese. It was the capital of the republic of Volces Aremorici. Some go as far as making go up its origin has Nemausus, one of Heraclides. It is more probable than, founded either by Iberiens of Spain, or by Phoceens of Marseilles, that city formed its name of the Celtic word Nemos which meant place devotes to the religion. Enlevee by the Vandals with the Romans, who had decorated it splendid monuments, it passed soon after to Visigoths. Being then tombee with the capacity of Buckwheats, it was strong maltraitee by their winner Charles Martel. It had some time of the particular counts, then passed has those of Toulouse. Taken in 1226, by Louis VIII, it was however definitively joined together with the crown only in 1229. It has Nimes which was concluded, in 1575, treats it between the two parties of the calvinists and the policies. The wise measurements taken by the Secretary of State Simon Fizes, prevented there, in 1592, the execution of the cruel orders of Charles IX.
