Eth. VESUBIA´NI a people mentioned in the inscription of the arch of Susa. The resemblance of name has led geographers to place the Vesubiani in a valley through which runs a torrent called Vesubia, which falls into the Var. The Esubiani, who are mentioned in the inscription of the Trophy of the Alps (Pliny, 3.20) seem to be the same as the Vesubiani, for the only difference is a V. But D'Anville places the Esubiani on the Ubaye and the Ubayette, which two streams unite above Barcelonette in the department of Basses-Alpes.
