ALMA, ALMUS (Ἄλμα, D. C. 4.30; Aurel. Vict. Epitom. 38, Probus ; Eutrop. ix. Vopiscus, Probus, 18), a mountain in Lower Pannonia, near Sirmium. The two robber-chieftains Bato made this mountain their stronghold during the Dalmatian insurrection in A.D. 6-7. (Dict. of Biogr. art. Bato.) 11; was planted with vines by the emperor Probus about A.D. 280-81, the spot being probably recommended to him by its contiguity to his native town of Sirmium.
