AXIMA (Aisme), a town of the Centrones, according to Ptolemy, who are an Alpine people. In the Table it is placed, but under the name Axuna, between Bergintrum (St. Maurice) and Darantasia (Moutiers en Tarentaise), on the road over the pass of the Alpis Graia or Petit St. Bernard. The position is thus determined to be that of Aisme. The Antonine Itin. omits Axima, but makes the distance xviii., between Bergintrum and Darantasia, the same distance that is given in the Table. It is said that inscriptions have been found at Aisme with the name Forum Claudii; yet Forum Claudii is a different place, though in the country of the Centrones.
