AUSA (Αὔσα), the chief city of the AUSETANI was called in the middle ages Ausona and Vicus Ausonensis, Viec de Osane, whence its modern name [p. 1.344]of Vique, or Vich. It lies W. of Gerona, on a S. tributary of the Ter, the ancient Alba. (Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4; Ptol. 2.6.70; Marca, Hisp. 2.22, p. 191.) There is a coin with the inscription AUSA; but it is probably spurious. (Eckhel, vol. i. p. 35; Mionnet, vol. i. p. 29; Sestini, Lettere, vol. ix. praef., Med. Isp. p. 104; Ukert, vol. ii. pt. 1. p. 426.)
