Eth. PARISI (Eth. Παρίσοι, Ptol. 2.3.17), a British tribe dwelling on the NE. coast of Britannia Romana, and on the left bank of the Abus (Humber), consequently in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Their chief town was Petuaria (Πετουαρία, Ptol. I. c.), which is thought to be the same with the Praetorium of the Itinerary (pp. 464, 466), and whence there was a road through Eboracum (York) to the Roman Wall. Respecting the site of Petuaria there have been many conjectures, and it has been variously identified with Beverley, Burgh, Auldby, &c.
