PRAETO´RIUM There were places of this name in Gallia, Hispania, and in other countries which the Romans occupied. A Praetorium is the residence of a praetor and the seat of the supreme court. The word was also used to signify a magnificent palatial building. The Table marks a Praetorium in Gallia, on a road from Augustoritum (Limoges.) At the Praetorium the road divides, one branch going to Augustonemetum (Clermont Ferrand in the Auvergne) and the other to Avaricum (Bourges). It is not possible to fix the site of this Praetorium.
