Le Vieux Moulin de Monte Carlo - 2


Here you see the double millstone. See yesterday's post for more on this relic from Roman times - the olive oil mill of Monte Carlo.

The smaller photograph shows the millstone from a different angle, looking down on the square. On the far side is the church and on the left - the police station. You can just see the fountain in the centre. A better view of the fountain is seen by clicking on the link.

Roman era. That is amazing. I also liked your post yesterday. I wonder how many years it will take for these two sink out of sight?

After spending years crushing olives..it is spending centuries in an olive tree shade...
beautiful details in the different stone works.

Did not realize at first what it was. From the thumbnail it looks like a big barbell!

Neat! I enjoyed the history of this artifact as well.
