LUTE´VA (Eth. Lutevani: Lodève), in Gallia Narbonensis, is placed by the Table, where the name is written Loteva, on a road from Agatha (Agde) to Segodunum (Rhodez). Pliny (3.5) says, “Lutevani qui et Foroneronienses,” whence it has been [p. 2.222]concluded that he means the Forum Neronis mentioned by Ptolemy as being in the country of the Memini. [CARPENTORACTE] But the name Luteva, the modern name Lodève, and the Itin. seem to determine the position of Luteva; and, if Pliny is right, we must suppose that Luteva was also named Forum Neronis.
