Description : Die is a commune, former episcopal see, and subprefecture of the Drôme department in southeastern France. The region around Die is known as the Diois. The remains of the final Bronze Age were discovered at La Roche De Marginal, for example, some shards have been found at Chandillon. A first agglomeration seems to have appeared at the beginning of the Roman era, on a little mountain pass overhanging the Drôme, and the small valley of Meyrosse, at the crossroad between the valley and the path to Trièves. There is much evidence of the extension of urbanisation during the 1st century.
