Findspot of the so-called "Berthouville Treasure," discovered in 1830 in the hamlet of Villeret in the French commune of Berthouville. A temple and a theater of presumed Roman imperial date were subsequently excavated in the late 19th century. The site is not visible today, but a resistivity survey conducted in 2005 (Thierry) verified the locations of these major structures and the general accuracy of Babelon's map deriving from the original excavations.

sanctuary (religious center)

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 11 A3 Canetonum

The god's epithet, attested only on inscribed objects discovered at the site, presumably refers either to the sanctuary site itself or to a nearby, associated settlement (Canetonum). The excavators placed the settlement to the immediate northwest of the sanctuary, where they found a hypocaust and various "substructures" across a large area, but Thierry 2005 echoes twentieth-century scholars who think the site was a relatively isolated, extra-urban sanctuary without a large, attached settlement. Thierry also notes, based on the resistivity survey, that the sanctuary may have overlain an earlier, Iron Age site of as-yet-undetermined type.
