DALHEIM Luxembourg.

Vicus on the main Roman road from Metz (Divodurum Mediomatricorum) to Trèves (Augusta Treverorum), ruins of which were visible until the 17th c. The site was occupied in the Neolithic period (silex tools, food, and wells), and in Roman times there were narrow urban houses. Inscriptions dedicated to the gods (Jupiter, Minerva, Juno, Mercury, Victoria, Nemesis, Mater Deorum) and to the dead have been found, and ca. 30,000 coins from Roman times to the 5th c. A.D. Other finds include statues of the gods, bas-reliefs, animal figurines, portraits, and objects of everyday life. No visible traces are left on the site. The finds are in the Musée d'Histoire et d'Art in Luxembourg.
