Eth. PONS TILURI a station on the road from Sirmium to Salona, in the interior of Dalmatia. (Itin Anton.; Tilurium, Peut. Tab.; Geogr. Ray. 4.16.) It may be identified with the passage of the river Cettina or Tsettina (Tilurus), at Trigl, with the opposite height of Gardun, where there are vestiges of a Roman town, which was probably the colony of AEQUUM (Αἰκοῦον κόλ., Ptol. 2.16 (17). § 11; Itin. Anton.; Pent. Tab.; Orelli, Inscr. 502), where an inscription has been found commemorating the restoration of the bridge under the name of PONS HIPPI,--a Graecised form of the Latin name of the town, which was sometimes spelt as Equum. (Wilkinson, Dalmatia, vol. i. p. 238; Neigebaur, Die Sud-Slaven, p. 178.)
