an Inalpine people, whom the emperor Galba included within the limits of Gallia Narbonensis (Plin. Nat. 3.4
). Pliny mentions Dinia (Digne
) as the capital of the Avantici and Bodiontici, and thus enables us to determine the position of the Avantici in a general way. Digne
is in the department of Basses Alpes, on the Bleonne,
a branch of the Durance.
A place named Avançon
seems to represent the name Aventici; but D'Anville thinks that its position does not correspond to the probable position of the Avantici.
