Long Description:
The exact date is unknown. It is believed that the basin was used in Roman times. In any case, here the water was dammed and removed. Also, the pool may have been used as a grape press for wine. It is also thought that here earlier seedlings were watered and were then planted in the forest above.

Das genaue Entstehungsdatum ist unbekannt. Es wird vermutet, dass schon zur Römerzeit das Becken benutzt wurde. Auf jeden Fall wurde hier Wasser gestaut und entnommen. Auch kann das Becken als Traubenpresse für Wein benutzt worden sein. Es wird auch vermutet dass hier früher Setzlinge getränkt wurden und dann oberhalb im Wald angepflanzt wurden.
