LIGAUNI

Eth. LIGAUNI a people of Gallia Narbonensis, mentioned by Pliny (3.4): “Regio Oxubiorum Ligaunorumque: super quos Suetri, &c.” The next Regio to the east that he mentions is “Regio Deciatium.” If we can make a safe conclusion from Pliny's text, the Ligauni must have been close to the Oxybii, with the Deciates to the east, and somewhere where between the Argenteus river and Antipolis, Walckenaer (Géog. &c. vol. ii. p. 42): places the Ligauni in the parts about Saint-Vallier, Callian, and Fayen.
