STA´BULA in Gallia, is placed by the Antonine Itin. vi. from Cambes (Gros Kembs) and xviii. from Argentovaria (Artzenheim). These distances bring us to a place between Otmarsheim and Bautzheim, where Rhenanus, quoted by D'Anville, says that traces of an old place are found.

The word Stabula meant a station or resting place for travellers, a kind of inn, as we see from a passage of Ulpian (Dig. 47. tit. 5. s. 1): “qui naves, cauponas, stabula exercent;” and the men who kept these places were “Stabularii.”
