GARGA´RIUS LOCUS a place in Gallia Narbonensis, known only from an inscription of the time of Hadrian. D'Anville (Notice, &c.) received an exact copy of it from Barthélemy. This inscription records the “Pagani pagi Lucreti qui sunt finibus Arelatensium loco Gargario.” The place, which is still called Garguies, is at the foot of a mountain called St. Pilon; “and the plain which extends from the foot of this mountain as far as Aubagne, in the direction of Marseille, is called Lacrau, and this may be the Pagus Lucretus of the inscription” (D'Anville).
