FORUM VOCONII

Eth. FORUM VOCONII a place in Gallia Narbonensis, distant from Forum Julii [FORUM JULII; ARGENTEUS] 24 M. P., as it appears from the letter of Plancus to Cicero. The Antonine Itin. also makes the distance the same. D'Anville fixes Forum Voconii at a place called Gonfaron, which he supposes to be a corruption or such a word as Vocon-foron, which he invents for the occasion. Papon, who is followed by Walckenaer, fixes it at Le Canet; and [p. 1.912]others fix it at Vulauban, east of Le Canet. Pliny (3.5) calls Forum Voconii a Latin town, that is, it had the Latinitas.
