Lyon: Scale model of Roman Lugdunum


.

A topographic model of Lugdunum shows the hill of the Fourviere (old forum) overlooking the confluence of the Rhône and Saone rivers, with the island of Lugdunum- Kanabe in the Rhône at left.

Plans of the Roman city, which became the capital of the three provinces of Gaul, are displayed along with the model in Gallery III of the Musée de la Civilisation Gallo-Romaine, located next to the Roman Theater on the Fourviere.
