ARIACA or ARTIACA, a town of Gallia, which is represented by Arcis-sur-Aube, according to the Antonine Itin., which places it. between Troyes and Châlons. It is placed M. P. xviii., Leugas xii., from Tricasses (Troyes); and M. P. xxxiii., Leugas xxii., from Durocatalauni (Chdalons). In both cases the measurement by Roman miles and Leugae, or Gallic leagues, agrees,--for the ratio is 1 1/2 Roman miles to a Leuga. The actual measurements also agree with the Table.
