This item can be found on the following maps:
City of the Ruteni in Aquitania at the confluence of the Tarn and the Dourbie, called Aemiliavum since the 3rd cent. AD (therefore modern Millau), modern La Graufesenque. Significant pottery production, especially terra sigillata, exported in the 1st cent. AD, gradually superseded by Lezoux ( Arverni). Monuments: many workshops, two fana, nymphaeum. Inscriptions (‘kiln registers ’) from C. are an important source of the economic history of the ancient pottery industry.
