AQUAE SEGESTE a place denoted in the Peutinger Table as the site of mineral waters. D'Anville (Notice, &c.) places it at Ferrières, which lies nearly in a direct line between Orléans and Sens, on which route it was, according to the Table. There are chalybeate springs at Ferrières. But the distances in the Table do not agree with the actual distances, unless we change xxii., the distance between Fines, the first station from Orléans (Genabum), and Aquae Segesta, into xv. The distance of xxii. from Aquae Segesta to Sens (Agedincum) also requires to be reduced to xv., on the supposition of Ferrières being the true site. Ukert and others place Aquae Segesta at Fontainebleau, which seems to lie too far out of the direct road between Orléans and Sens.
