Sarcophagi containing a variety of burial gifts have been
discovered on the left bank of the Marne; also a house,
one wall of which has been explored for a considerable
length. The house included a cold pool and a caldarium.
The finds are diverse (metal and bone objects, pottery
from different sources, a bronze statuette, and coins) and
indicate occupation lasting from the 1st or 2d c. A.D.
to the 5th c., possibly with interruptions.
On the banks of the Marne, 3 km to the S, arms and
Roman coins of the 1st c. A.D. have been found; in another section, a number of pottery bowls and some
silver coins of Caletedu. The town itself has yielded some
Merovingian sarcophagi and, especially to the W at Saint-Dizier-Hoericourt, a sizable necropolis of the 5th-6th c.
built on the site of some Gallo-Roman inhumation tombs.
The finds are in the Saint-Dizier museum.
