NERVICANUS TRACTUS is mentioned in the Not. Imp. as a continuation of the Armoricanus Tractus. There is also a middle age authority for the expression “Nervici littoris tractus.” A port on this coast, named Portus Aepatiaci, was guarded by some Nervian troops according to the Notitia. D'Anville concludes that the Nervii extended from their inland position to the coast, and had part of it between the Morini and the mouth of the Schelde; a conclusion for which there is little evidence, and a good deal against it. [MENAPII; MORINI.]
