Hello Bernard! Sorry, I don't speak French... where did you find this nice object? What is this?

Cheers, Adri

On the floor Adrienne, it is a nail of bronze sealed on the floor. It is here, in the middle of the street to mark Via Régornade. It is Camin Romieu. It is a way (or a lane) followed, with feet, by the pilgrims bound for the tomb of Saint-Pierre in Rome. This way leaves in Puy-en-Velay in the centre of France, passes by the city of Nîmes and goes to Saint-Gilles in the south. Then, there is another way which goes to Rome.

Camin Romieu is the occitan appellation of the way of Rome. The occitan is an ancient language spoken in the south of France (at the time of the kings of France and even afterwards)

I am glad about your question and I answer with a lot of pleasure. Cheers, Bernard

If this medalion was set in a scottish road it would have to be of Base metal, or it would not stay in the road for to long a time, cheers scally

It is a bronze nail sealed on the floor. They are sealed well. I think that there isn’t only Scottish who tries to extract them.

Cheers, Bernard
