Site of a Gallo-Roman pottery where excavations have revealed nine kilns.
Two important periods of activity have been identified.
To the first, which dates from Tiberius' reign, belong the
first chalice mold (imitation Arezzo) found in Gaul, a
large quantity of imitation terra sigillata cups, and ordinary ware. The second period is Antonine, when the
workshop specialized in bowls of white clay, sometimes
large. The potter's name is frequently stamped on the
rim of the bowl, giving us some 40 new names including
AUSTERINUS, CASATUS, CORISILLUS, MASSA, SAMITUS, URBINOS. A pottery warehouse has also been found on the
banks of the Loire.
