EDENA´TES

Eth. EDENA´TES are mentioned in the inscription on the Trophy of the Alps. (Plin. Nat. 3.20). The name of the Adanates occurs on the arch at Segusio (Susa), and D'Anville considers, it the same as the name Edenates, but others do not. The difference is certainly not much; but the object of the two inscriptions is not the same. D'Anville conjectures that “the) name of Sedena, which is that of the little town of Seine, in the north of Provence, in the diocese of Embrun, on the borders of that of Digne,” may indicate the site of the Edenates. Seine was called Sedena in the middle ages.
