Ancient caementa vs modern cement[recensere | fontem recensere]

This page is currently contradictory because it is using Vitruvius' definition of caementum (= 'rubble') but it is being used to mean 'cement' (i.e., any substance that solidifies and binds construction material together'). So 'cement' is the building opposite to caementa. There is also that Vitruvius always uses it in plural (off the top of my head -- need to double check), so I don't know if we can have caementa and caementum as two different entries?--Xaverius 07:53, 23 Aprilis 2018 (UTC)
