FLEURY Canton of Coursan, Aude, France.

Gallo-Roman establishment S of Béziers, on a small rocky butte near the coast at the locality called La Fount de Rome. The platform of less than 1 ha on which the buildings were located is shored up on the S and E by strong supporting walls faced with regular small blocks. Only the S wing of the establishment has as yet been excavated; it consists of several rooms and probably some baths. The artifacts discovered cover the entire Gallo-Roman period. This ensemble, small but original in form, may have had a cultic purpose.
