FLAVIOBRI´GA (Φλαουιόβριγα prob. Portugalete), a sea-port town on the N. coast of Hispania Terraconensis, and on the W. side of the estuary of the Nerva (Nervion). From the notice of it in Pliny, we may infer that it received its name, and its rank as a colony, under Vespasian or Titus; having formerly been called Amanum portus. (Plin. Nat. 4.20. s. 34.) Pliny assigns it to the Varduli, but Ptolemy to the Autrigones. (Florez, Esp. S. xxiv. p. 10; Mariana, Hist. Hisp. 4.4.)
