A first study of the millstones of the Greek Colony of Megara Hybkaea (Sicily)
MetadataShow full item record
Megara Hyblaea, one of the first Greek settlements in Sicily, has a large and diverse assemblage of millstones: saddle querns, Olynthus mills, Morgantina mills, Delian mills, rotary querns and possibly a Pompeian mill. This diversity of mill types is the result of the long occupation of the site and the confluence in Sicily of Greek, Punic and Roman cultures and a variety of food processing traditions.
