Qui est l’auteur de l’aqueduc du Galermi ? Nouvelles pistes sur un aqueduc plurimillénaire en province de Syracuse (Italie)

Abstract : The paper presents the first results of an interdisciplinary team from Aix-Marseille University in 2012 and 2015 about the Galermi Aqueduct, particularly about two main aspects: the route of the aqueduct and one of the intakes, la Bottiglieria. The aqueduct collects water from the stream of the Calcinara, inside Hyblaean Mounts and brings it to the Greek theater of Syracuse on a distance of 27,5 km. The apparent lack of technological requirements, the absence of a siphon, the errors and modifications of the channel which have been identified in the Calcinara and Anapo gorge might suggest a fairly high dating, as Thucydides and local scholars suggested it, that is to say under the rule of the Deinomenid Gelo of Syracuse, in the first quarter of the Vth century BC. But the late evidence (a Hellenistic artificial cove, inscriptions, and tabulae ansatae) forced down the chronology lower than what we originally thought. This part of the Galermi Aqueduct seems to go back to the Hellenistic period at the earliest. The first results cannot precise the chronology.
