In the annex building on the ground floor are a number of interesting and attractive Gallo-Roman finds unearthed in the locality. These range from the fine Chieftan's ceremonial helmet with foliated ear guards, to rough bas-reliefs like the Boatman's pillar at the Cluny; there were well-worked colored mosaics, statuettes of various cults and a ceramic statuette-mold suggesting a local manufacturer.
