CRUSI´NIE a place in Gallia, according to the Table, on a route from Cabillio, that is Cabillonum (Châlons-sur-Saône), to Vesontio (Besançon). It lies between Vesontio and Ponte Dubris of the Table, that is Pons Dubis, which is Ponthoux, on the Doubs. The place is therefore between Ponthoux and Besançon; but such obscure places cannot be easily determined by distances. Walckenaer and others place Crusinie at Orchamps near the Doubs, where there are said to be Roman remains. D'Anville places it near Crissei, being determined, as he often is,. by mere resemblance of name.
