SOLO´NIUM

SOLO´NIUM (Σολώνιον), in Gallia Narbonensís, where C. Pomptinus defeated the Allobroges, B.C. 61. (D. C. 37.100.48; Liv. Epit. 103, where it is said, “C. Pontinius Praetor Allobroges qui rebellaverant ad Salonemn (Solonem?) domuit.” ) It has been conjectured that Solonium is Sallonaz, in the department of Ain, near the small river Brivas; but this is merely a guess. The narrative of Dion is useless, as usual, for determining anything with precision. Other guesses have been made about the position of Solonium; one of which is too absurd to mention.
