RICCIACUM

RICCIACUM in North Gallia. The Table has a road from Divodurum (Metz) to Augusta Trevirorum (Trier). From Divodurum to Caranusca is xlii., from Caranusca to Ricciacum x., and from Ricciacum to Augusta x. D'Anville guessed Ricciacum to be Remich on the Mosel; but it is only a guess. There is evidently an error in the Table in the distance between Divodurum and Ricciacum, which is a great deal too much. The geographers have handled this matter in various ways. [CARANUSCA] (See also Ukert, Gallien, p. 512, and the note.)
