“A Torque, in archæology, is a twisted collar of gold, or other metal, worn around the neck, in ancient times by the people of Asia and the N. of Europe, and apparently forming a great part of the wealth of the wearer. Among the ancient Gauls gold torques appear to have been so abundant that about 223 B. C. Flaminius Nepos erected to Jupiter a golden trophy made from the torques of the conquered Gauls."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
