SALICES

SALICES (AD), a place in Moesia which the Antonine Itinerary places not far from the mouths of the Danube at 43 M. P. from Halmyris, and 62 Mi. P. from Tomi. The low and marshy meadows which surrounded it were the scene of the sanguinary battle between the great Fridigern and the legions of Valens. (Amm. Marc. 31.7.5; Gibbon, c. xxvi.; Le Beau, Bas Empire, iv. p. 112; Greenwood, Hist. of the Germans, p. 328.)
