AQUAE CA´LIDAE The position of this place is marked in the Theodosian Table by its being on the road between Augustonemetum (Clermont) in the Auvergne and Rodumna (Rouanne). The distance from Augustonemetum to Aquae Calidae is not given; but there is no doubt that Aquae Calidae is Vichy on the Allier, a place now frequented for its mineral waters.

D'Anville (Notice, &c.) remarks, that De Valois confounds the Aquae Calidae with the Calentes Aquae mentioned by Sidonius Apollinaris, which are Chaudes-aigues (hot-waters) in the department of Cantal. The whole of the mountain region of the Auvergne abounds in mineral waters.
