Latin name (also Lora or Lorca) for the Piquette the Roman. It was a cheap and low-quality mass drink that from Pliny the Elder (23-79) was called "Vinum operarium" (worker wine). From the household of the famous politician Cato the Elder (234-149 BC) has been handed down that after the harvest his slaves received Iora before they were allowed to drink real wine. The Iora was also very popular with the Roman military, although the pomace itself was pressed when the pomace was purchased. Those that occur during pressing rape (Press residues) were mixed with water and were pressed again after one day. That is why the wine was also called "Vinum secundum".

The low-alcohol result was an affordable substitute for poorer people. Since the Iora in very quickly vinegar could handle, it had to be consumed quickly. If this did happen, the liquid for the production of the Posca (a vinegar water) used. The German terms Lauer, Leier, Lorka (Lorcka) and Lurka (Lurcka) for pomace are derived from Iora and Lora.
