AUGUSTOBRI´GA (Αὐγουστόβριγα: Eth. Augustobrigenses).


A city of Lusitania, on the road from Emerita to Toletum, 56 M. P. from the former and 55 from the latter. (Itin. Ant. p. 438.) It seems to correspond to Puente de Arçobispo, on the N. bank of the Tagus: others seek it at Villar Pedroso. (Ukert, vol. ii. pt. 1. p. 396.)


A city of the Vettones in Lusitania, probably near Ciudad Rodrigo. (Ptol. 2.5.9.)

It is uncertain which of the above is the stipendiary town of Pliny (4.22. s. 35.)


Aldea el Muro, near Soria), a city of the Pelendones, in Hispania Tarraconensis, 23 M. P. E. of Numantia, on the road to Caesaraugusta. (Itin. Ant. p. 442; Ptol. 2.6.54; Florez, Esp. Sagr. vol. xiv. p. 41; D'Anville, Mém. de l'Acad. des Inscr. vol. xl. p. 767; Ukert, id. p. 454.) [P.S]
