VEDINUM (Udine), a city of Venetia, mentioned only by Pliny (3.19. s. 23) among the municipalities of that country. It was situated in the plain of the Carni, 11 miles W. of Cividale (Forum Julii), and 22 NNW. of Aquileia. In Pliny's time it was apparently an inconsiderable place, but rose into importance in the middle ages, and is now a flourishing and populous city, and the capital of the whole province of the Friuli. Many MSS. of Pliny write the name Nedinates, which has been adopted both by Harduin and Sillig, but it is probable that the old reading Vedinates is correct.
