Eth. VERTACOMICORI a pagus of the Vocontii in Gallia Provincia, to whom Pliny (3.17) attributes the foundation of Novaria in Gallia Cisalpina [NOVARIA]. The name seems to be preserved in Vercors, a district in the old country of the Vocontii, in the northern part of the diocese of Die [DEA VOCONTIORUM]. In some middle age documents the name appears in the abbreviated form Vercorium, which is the next step to Vercors (D'Anville, Notice, &c.).
