Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] So far called 'tubes with tubes', those found in Milan in number of four have been the subject of a structural study that has favored a clarification also in terms of the hydraulic efficiency of those that were in reality four Ctesibicae machinae. The pumps, with double suction and pressing plungers, have been correlated with the topographical and hydrological characteristics of the city in order to analyze the possible and more appropriate location in the ancient city, also considered in the light of other archaeological findings related to the particular environmental conditions of the city Cisalpine.
