FRISIABO´NES

FRISIABO´NES are placed by Pliny (4.17) in North Gallia, between the Sunici and Betasii [BETASII]. We cannot tell exactly where to fix them, unless they were near the Betasii; nor is it certain that the name is right, for the Frisii belong to another place. The “Frisaei” appear on an inscription in Gruter, but this is a different name. Forbiger, who refers to his authorities, states that Frisiabones is only another way of writing the name Frisaevones (Gruter, p. 522, 7, &c.). (Forbiger, Handbuch, &c. vol. iii. p. 254; Ukert, Gallien, p, 271.)
