Eth. PONS SARAVI a bridge over the Saravus (Sarre) in Gallia on the road from Divodurum (Metz) to Argentoratum (Strassburg). The Table marks 10 from Decem-pagi (Dieuze) to Tabernae (Saverne). Though the distances are not quite correct, it is clear that Saarburg on the Sarre must be the Pons Saravi; and it cannot be Saarbrück on the Saar, for Saarbrück is more than 30 miles north of Saarburg, and quite out of the way. This is an instance in which a hasty conclusion has been derived solely from the sameness of name.
