Abstract The Romans built ancient culverts beneath roads and aqueducts. The hydraulic operation of a large culvert, built around the 1st century A.D. beneath the Nimes aqueduct, is described. The investigation shows the advanced design of an ancient multicell structure with a large discharge capacity equivalent to about 12 times the aqueduct maximum discharge capacity.
