Long Description:
The Neptune fountain, beautiful pink sandstone fountain topped by a statue of Neptune.
Neptune in Latin Neptunus, was originally, in Roman mythology, the god of Whitewater and the Springs. After Lectisternium 399 BC. AD, it is assimilated to the god Oceans of Greek mythology, Poseidon.
What better than to have chosen the name Neptune Fountain. His statue is eaten away but is perched on his pedestal for over 200 years.

La fontaine Neptune, magnifique fontaine de grés rose, surmontée d'une statue de Neptune.
Neptune, en latin Neptunus, est originellement, dans la mythologie romaine, le dieu des Eaux vives et des Sources. Après le lectisterne de 399 av. J.-C., il est assimilé au dieu des Océans de la mythologie grecque, Poséidon.
Quoi de mieux que d'avoir choisi Neptune pour le nom de la fontaine. Sa statue est grugée mais elle est juchée sur son piédestal depuis plus de 200ans.
