Did the Romans eat seaweed?
#1
I've been asked by an acquaintance if it's known whether the Romans ever ate seaweed?

I know that there's anecdotal evidence (at least) of them using seaweed medicinally, but my copy of Apicius makes no reference to it being eaten.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
