MEDOBRIGA a town in Lusitania (Hirt. B. Alex. 48), the inhabitants of which are called by Pliny (4.22. s. 35) Medubricenses Plumbarii, is the same place as MUNDOBRIGA or MONTOBRIGA, which is placed in the Antonine Itinerary (p. 420) on the road from Scalabis to Emerita. There are ruins of the ancient town at Marvao, on the frontiers of Portugal. (Resendi, Ant. Lus. p. 58; Florez, Esp. Sagr. xiii. p. 66.)
