Abstract

The aim of the present study is to summarize new results concerning the capacity of the Roman aqueduct of Brigetio (Komárom/Szőny). Hydrological formulae used for calculations on the capacity of aqueducts are described and used to determine the daily discharge of the Roman aqueduct of Brigetio. The results presented are hypothetical, but it is hoped that they reflect the performance of the aqueduct. Calculations on per capita daily water supply and related problems are also addressed.
