The southern region of the Main Limes delivered timber and red
sandstone as far as Mainz/MOGONTIACUM, the legionary fortress of
the province Germania superior.
Tree trunks - whose ages can be determined dendrochronologically - were felled in the Odenwald region and were usually shipped down the Main on rafts.
Flat-bottomed barges with a low draught were used to transport blocks of stone.
