VINDANA PORTUS

VINDANA PORTUS (Οὐίνδανα λιμήν), a bay on the north-west coast of Gallia (Ptol. 2.8.1), and placed by Ptolemy between the mouth of the Herius [HERIUS] and the Promontorium Gobaeum. D'Anville supposes the Vindana to be the bay of Morbihan, at the bottom of which was the capital of the Veneti, now Vannes. Other geographers have made other guesses: the bay of Douarnez, the mouth of the Blavet, and others still.
