Abstract

The edible dormouse was known as a delicious treat to rich Romans. This short article aims to emphasise the importance of the archaeological materials for getting to know more about the degree to which dormice were eaten, by whom, and where. The material evidence, consisting of dormouse-jars in which the animals were fattened, is critically reexamined.
