CORRE Haute-Saône, France.

Gallo-Roman site, sometimes incorrectly identified with Ptolemy's enigmatic Dittation (2.9), at the juncture of the Saône and the Coney, on an important crossroads. It has yielded numerous sculptures: a fine series of funerary stelai, a torso of Apollo, and the remains of several groups of Jupiter and an anguiped monster. Those sculptures still in existence are now in the Museum of Vesoul which, with that of Luxeuil, is the most important museum for sculpture in the Franche-Comté.
