Le pont de Barbegal au vallon des Arcs à Fontvieille (Bouches-du-Rhône) : étude archéologique de la dérivation de l’aqueduc d’Arles

Abstract : In connection with the construction of the Barbegal mills, a suspended aqueduct was built for the water-supply of the factory by the means of the southern branch of the aqueduct of Arles. It is composed of two parts : one with solid masonry walls in opus caementicium with an opus vittatum facing, the other with 28 arches built with the same techniques in the continuity of the masonry wall. The impost and the basis of the piers which support the arches are made of large mollasse blocks. On one of the arches being preserved, a mark from a rebuilding presumably following a voluntary destruction. An estimation of the flow is given here.
