TOURMONT Jura, France.

A site with the remains of a large villa decorated with mosaics. It has been excavated several times but never completely, and no ground plan has ever been published. Four mosaics have been noted, and recent searches have turned up another whose composition recalls that of the Arlay and Mantoche mosaics. The site has also yielded a 3d c. hoard of more than 10,000 coins.
