Abstract : Series of white marble capitals constitute significant markers for valuation of marble craftsmen’s circulation or stone cutting technical’s dissemination in roman provinces. In eastern Belgic Gaul and Germany, they have not been subjected of comprehensive survey since 1939 when H. Kähler published its book Die römischen Kapitelle des Rheingebietes. However, the recent study of collection of architectural pieces discovered in Mandeure (Franche-Comté) provided reconstruction of new series of corinthian and composite capitals in white marble. They give evidence of influence of Italian models as well as testimony of the work of Italian craftsmen coming from imperial building in this area. The resumption of this work would be able to reconsidering influence of Italian models in those provinces.
