Note sur des meules en trachy-andésite d'époque romaine découvertes en Loire-Atlantique

Abstract : Straddling the Namneti city-state and a part of the Picton area, Loire-Atlantique yelded, for the Gallo-Roman period, a significant quantity of milling artefacts in trachyandesite. These objects reflect importation, a phenomenon which seems to have been most prominent in the second half of the 2nd century and perhaps the first half of the 3rd one. Besides hand-held or even blood mills and tripod mortars, millstones which were most probably water powered have been identified, most of the catilli being fitted with a single overhead mill-edge which seems quite atypical.
