Notes: "Les pompes romaines ont été utilisées pour puiser l'eau des puits et, essentiellement, comme des pompes portatives pour la lutte contre le feu. Les premiers exemples sont en bronze, mais le type grec a été très astucieusement transformé à l'époque romaine, où les pompes, désormais plus faciles et moins chères à fabriquer comme à entretenir, sont taillées dans une section de tronc, avec des trous bouchés à leurs extrémités pour obtenir des volumes internes étanches à la pression.0On en connaît 18 exemplaires, datés des IIe - IVe s. de n. ère, dont 13 sont conservés à ce jour. Pour rédiger cette monographie, l'auteur a travaillé sur les vestiges, la documentation des 18 exemplaires, ainsi que les sources antiques."
