Evidence for wine related objects in limited locations pre 55BC (Romans send their first mob) - yes
Evidence of routine wine drinking or wine drinking culture pre-Roman - no

It really depends on the question you ask :thumbsup:
Or what you read?

I haven't got the BAR publication but the synopsis fits with what I said. The synopsis also says "the author suggests...". Can you share section 2 part 4 or the bibliography that relates to that section please (the latter won't be under copyright).
I've just written to the author to see if anything has changed since 2001. If I get an answer I'll update the post.

Verica was dipicting Roman wine cups on his coins in the early 1st century, he was in bed with the Romans, am sure he was having a snifter of the old Barolo well before he went running to Claudius in Rome :lol: ... icky=false
