REVESSIO (Ῥύεσιον), in Gallia, is the city of the Vellavi, or Velauni, as the name is written in Ptolemy (2.7.20). Revessio is the name of the place in the Table. In the Not. Provinc. it is written Civitas Vellavorum. Mabillon has shown that the place called Civitas Vetula in the middle ages is S. Paulien or Paulhan, and the Civitas Vetula is supposed to be the ancient capital of the Vellavi. S. Paulien is in the department of Haute Loire, north of Le Puy.
