Corent is a commune in the Puy-de-D√īme department in Auvergne in central France.

It sits approximately 2 miles north of Les Martres-de-Veyre on the side of the old volcanic Puy de Corent.

In 2001 excavation began on a Gaul and later Roman Oppidum found in a field atop the puy. To this date, vast quantities of land have been excavated revealing the site as a main political, religious and economic center.[1]
