SAINT-CLAR Gers, France.

1. On the plateau of Frans and Empourruche have been found the remains of a rich Gallo-Roman villa and of a monumental tomb decorated with statues and bas-reliefs.

2. At La Bénazide in 1964 and 1965, another, more modest villa has been excavated. It was occupied from the 2d to the 5th c. A.D., and was later turned into a cemetery. A Gallo-Roman limestone head of Celtic manufacture comes from a nearby field.
