UCETIA

UCETIA in Gallia Narbonensis, north of Nîmes. This place is known only from the Roman remains which have been discovered there, and from the inscription VCETIAE on a stone found at Nîmes. The place is Uzes, north of the river Gardon, from which place the water was brought to Nîmes by the aqueduct over the Gardon. [NEMAUSUS] Ucetia appears in the Notitia of the Provinces of Gallia under the name of Castrum Uceciense. Ucetia was a bishopric as early as the middle of the fifth century.
