(Monmouth) Monmouthshire, Wales.
The place name occurs in the Antonine Itinerary
17.6 km from Burrium (Usk) and the same distance
from Ariconium (Weston-under-Penyard). It has long
been identified with Monmouth, at the junction of the
rivers Wye and Monnow. This identification has yet to
be corroborated by the finding of Roman structures,
though pottery has been found in and near the town.
