BAE´CULA (Βαίκυλα: Eth. Βαικυλεύς Steph. B. sub voce.


A town of Hispania Baetica, in the territory of Castulo, and near the silver mines W. of that city. It was the scene of Scipio's victories over Hasdrubal (B.C. 209), and over Mago and Masinissa, B.C. 206. (Plb. 10.38, 11.20; Liv. 27.18-20; 28.13.) It is apparently the Βαιτύκη of Appian (6.24), and it seems to correspond to the modern Baylen. (Ukert, vol. i. p. 379; Forbiger, vol. iii. p. 64.)


A town of the Ausetani, in Hispania Tarraconenses. [AUSETANI] [P.S]
