SALINAE

SALINAE in Gallia, the chief town of the Suetri or Suctrii (Ptol. 3.1.42), a people in the Provincia E. of the Rhone. An inscription in Spon, “Decc civitatis Salin.,” is said to belong to this place; and another inscription has been found at Lucerano near the sources of the Paglione: “C. Julio Valenti J. F. Fabr VI. viro civitat. Saliniens.... Alpium maritimarum patrono optimo.” Some place Salinae at Castellan in the diocese of Senez in the Maritime Alps, where there are salt springs, and where Spon's inscription is said to have been found. D'Anville places it at Seillans in the diocese of Fréjus, near Faventia (Fayence); and he observes that all the old towns of this country preserve their names. (D'Anville, Notice, &c.; Ukert, Gallien, p. 438.)
