LUXOVIUM This name appears on some inscriptions dug up at Luxeuil, in the French department of the Upper Saône. Luxeuil is on the Brenchin, and it has warm baths. The name on the inscriptions is said to be Luxovium or Lixovium. These inscriptions were published by Caylus, but they may not be genuine. In the life of St. Columban, written in the seventh century, Luxovium is mentioned:--“Castrum quod olim munitissimum, /un>priscis temporibus Luxovium nuncupatum, ubi etism Thermae eximio opere instructae habebantur. Multae illic statuae lapideae erant.” (D'Anville, Notice, &c.; Walckenaer, Géog. vol. i. p. 320.)
