). Ptolemy (2.9.17
) names Noeomagus [NOVIOMAGUS
No. 2.] and Rufiniana as the two towns of the Nemetes, a people on the Rhine in Gallia Belgica. If we place Rufiniana with D'Anville and others at Ruffach
in Upper Alsace
and in the present department of Haut Rhin,
we must admit that Ptolemy has made a great mistake, for Ruffach
is within the territory of the Rauraci. But D'Anville observes that it is not more entraordinary to find Rufiniana misplaced in Ptolemy than to find him place Argentoratum in the territory of the Vangiones.
