TILENE

TILENE in Gallia. The name is File in the Table, or Filena as some say. D'Anville altered it to Tilene, and he finds the place on a road in the Table from Andomatunum (Langres) to Cabillonum (Challon-sur-Saône). The place is Til-le-Château, the Tile Castrum of the eleventh century. Some documents of that time have Tiricastrum and Tricastel, and accordingly the place is vulgarly called Tré--château or Tri-château.
