SICUM (Σικοῦν, Ptol. 2.16.4; Plin. Nat. 3.22; Siclis, Peut. Tab.), a town of Dalmatia, to the E. of Tragurium, on the road to Salona, where Claudius is said to have quartered the veterans. (Plin. l. o.) From its position it cannot be Sebenico, with which it has been identified, but may be represented by the vestiges of a Roman station to the NW. of Castel Vettúri, on the Riviere dei Castelli, where a column with a dedicatory inscription to M. Julius Philippus has been lately found, as well as much pottery and Roman tiles. (Wilkinson, Dalmatia, >vol. i. p. 176.)
