      Hello,
      I'm sure the obvious gobsmacked answer would be--ta da!..noodles.
      There is a mention of soy sauce being a relief after garum garum and more garum...I'll look up my sources but as I recall, this comment was made by one of Claudius' cohorts, a sailor recently returned from the sea, whilst attending one of the endless parties Agrippina tossed.

      Hard to say ... We know they imported rice and other ingredients from
      India - and we know that a lot of ingredients came originally from India
      (banana, lemon, sugar cane, pepper etc.).

      SALVETE
      I would also be interested in a group order of mortaria; I'm in
      Massachusetts and had looked into getting a mortarium from these folks at
      the end of last year: they were out of stock at the time, but seemed very
      friendly. The shape looks great, at least to a nonspecialist like myself. As
      far as practical use goes: I take it there are listmembers who use them; is
      the abrasive sufficient to do a satisfactory job?
