    • The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. In this case, the bread was set to be sold, but only 2000 years later than expected.

    • Bread used to be a staple of food to the point you would just eat a slice of bread. France is probably the last country to still largely revolve around bread with the Frenchman's diet still often being just a loaf of bread and cheese.
