    Thanks for this, Dowrgi, very interesting! There’s also an inscription from the 1st century on a fountain in Limoges mentioning a ten nights festival of Grannus.

    POSTVMVS DV[M]
    NORIGIS F(ilius) VERG(obretus) AQV
    AM MARTIAM DECAM
    NOCTIACIS GRANNI D(e) S(ua) P(ecunia) D(edit)

    Translation: “The vergobretus Postumus son of Dumnorix gave from his own money the Aqua Martia (“Water of Martius [or Mars]”, an aqueduct for the ten-night festival of Grannus”.
