NAUSTALO

NAUSTALO a place on the south coast of Gallia, west of the Rhodanus, mentioned in the Ora Maritima of Avienus (5.613)-- “Tum Mansa vicus, oppidumque Naustalo Et urbs.

The name Naustalo looks like Greek, and if it is genuine, it may be the name of some Greek settlement along this coast. Nothing can be determined as to the site of Naustalo further than what Ukert says (Gallien, p. 412): it is somewhere between Cette and the Rhone.
